(3) Translation from a secret underground bunker: would you participate?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A news item that has been commented on and shared widely recently had to do with eleven translators who spent nearly two months in an underground bunker in Italy, translating Dan Brown's latest novel for simultaneous release in different languages.

Would you be willing to spend two months working in a secret bunker, with no contact with friends and family, if you could choose the translation project and the compensation was excellent? Share your opinion and be sure to vote in the poll on the Translator T.O. blog.

(4) Localization spotlight: the Italian localization 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 Italian localization team:

Nicole Maina -- http://www.proz.com/profile/72494
Giuliana Buscaglione -- http://www.proz.com/profile/24193
Valeria Monti -- http://www.proz.com/profile/1405841

PMastrorilli -- http://www.proz.com/profile/1450528
Raffaella Berry -- http://www.proz.com/profile/1632776

Valeria Monti, a member of the Italian localization team, had this to say about the team's work:

"Being part of the localization team has been a real honour, an experience that really paid my time and effort back. It's good to be part of something that my own professional community can enjoy and enhance through this ongoing project."

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.
