(1) Thank you for making "Giving Tuesday" at ProZ.com a success
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Tuesday, November 27th is being called "Giving Tuesday" by some, an opportunity to give to charity and otherwise help others.

To mark the occasion, ProZ.com announced that it would match donations made to Translator's without Borders' Fund a translator campaign.

Translators came forward to pledge donations, and together with ProZ.com's matching, 6,000 dollars was raised (funding for six translators for an entire year). Thank you to all who donated time, work, or money to this and other causes throughout the month, and all of 2012!

(4) Localization spotlight: the Slovenian team
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Each month, the ProZ.com newsletter features 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.

This month's spotlight is on the the Slovenian L10n team:

Vito Smolej -- http://www.proz.com/profile/91005
Leemeta -- http://www.proz.com/profile/608092
Iris Mesko -- http://www.proz.com/profile/583070
Tomi Dobaj -- http://www.proz.com/profile/72998
Ms.Straus -- http://www.proz.com/profile/718567
Kristina Licen -- http://www.proz.com/profile/141053
Mojra Vogelnik Skerlj -- http://www.proz.com/profile/1573558

Vito Smolej, the team coordinator, had this to say about the team's work:

"After several years of steady work, and with over 115600 words translated, our initial reason for localizing the ProZ.com user interface still stands: Slovenian ProZ.com members are ready to contribute their share to ProZ.com, the largest language professionals' platform on the internet.

We want ProZ.com to keep standing out from the crowd and see the wheat gets separated from the chaff with respect to Slovenian language professionals as well. Due to our involvement we hope customers will know better who to turn to for quality service, involving Slovenian language. Our work amplifies the advantages offered to us by ProZ.com allowing us to strengthen and expand our customer base."

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.
