(2) Localization spotlight: the Georgian team
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This month's localization spotlight is on the Georgian team:

http://www.proz.com/?sp=localization&sp_mode=team&lang=geo

Maya Gorgoshidze -- http://www.proz.com/profile/60049
Lela Pavliashvili -- http://www.proz.com/profile/81646

This is what one of the team members, Maya Gorgoshidze, said about her experience so far:

"The Georgian community is not very big, but still we represent a unique part of the world's languages, and I like the idea of having ProZ.com – the world's largest community of translators – localized into my native language as well. So I decided to participate in the localization project, because by adding another localization language my team would be able to express our humble thanks to the site from which we benefit so much, help in a worldwide promotion of our underrepresented language, and be proud that now we can have ProZ.com localized into Georgian."

Each month, the ProZ.com newsletter will feature an article highlighting one of the ProZ.com localization teams and the work they are doing to bring the ProZ.com site to their native languages. If you are a ProZ.com member and you would like to join a localization team in your native language, contact site staff to volunteer.
