Seeking volunteers to translate the site into Catalan (forgive me for posting in English)

Dear ProZians,

Teams of volunteer members have been working hard over the last several months to localize ProZ.com into various languages. As a result of their efforts, it is already possible to use the site in any of the following languages besides English:

Spanish
Russian
Romanian
German
Portuguese (BR)
Hungarian
Latvian
Albanian

This localization effort will make this your language site even more user-friendly for translators, interpreters, language service companies and end-clients all over the globe.

Now we are seeking volunteers and coordinators to help translate the site into additional languages. If you are interested in coordinating or volunteering to translate the site into Catalan, please let me know. I'd like to add that there will be compensation which includes special promotion throughout the site and also browniz for translating and checking words.

Preference will be given to our members, however, non-members may volunteer as well (note that in order to be a team leader you must be a member of the site).

Please let me know if you are interested in the project and/or have any questions.

Regards,
Patrick

I can help with the proof reading. Nov 6, 2006

As a non-native, I don't feel I would dare try and do the main translation. But I could certainly help check if translations offered got the feel of the original right.

Bona sort al equip, sigui qui sigui!

Count me in... Nov 7, 2006

I don't mind helping out. As a non-native, I'd want my translations checked, but given a lot of the translation is just translating single words or short phrases, I think I can be useful as a translator.

If necessary, I can bring my tools and technical aid.
As a non-native, I'm not a perfect candidate for a translator...

Com ho diuen, català, cosa de tots

WOW! Thanks for your interest in helping out!! Nov 8, 2006

Dear ProZians,

Thanks so much for your interest in helping out with the project!

Okay, numbers/deadlines:

Approximately 28,000 words with a deadline set for December 15th, 2006.

A team of 6-8 is ideal to complete the project in 5 weeks, with at least 2 team leaders (team leaders are able to upload and check the translated strings).

Here is a link to the Catalan Localization team:

http://www.proz.com/teams/484

Please know that I added everyone to the team, but I can remove you anytime you want:)

Would anyone like to volunteer as a team leader?

Regards,
Patrick

Canvi de decisió Nov 11, 2006

Ja estic implicat en dos projectes de traducció com a voluntari. Els dos són per a ONGs, i crec que aquests mereixen els meus esforços més que una empresa internacional amb un volum de negoci probablament de 7 xifres...
