(1) Building a translation team-- is it worth it?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Following the recent Hotel and tourism industry networking event for translators, a new team was created by specialists in that area, using the ProZ.com team feature. In just a short time, over one hundred specialists joined the team.

Translator teams can be composed of colleagues with similar or complementary services or areas of expertise. They can be used to share resources, to network, or to get and pass work. Benefits are being found in forming organized translation teams, where each team member gives their particular strengths or special skills to a project. These teams work together on translation, technical issues, quality control, they leverage their TMs, and teams are being used not just for working more efficiently on straight translation projects, but also to offer a more complete set of services to clients. Feedback from translators who have worked or are working on well-selected teams is very positive.

If you are considering building a team, or already have a team, you may be interested in using the Team feature on ProZ.com. Some improvements have been made recently to make this feature more useful in collaboration.

(3) Localization spotlight: the Hindi 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 Hindi localization team:

Balasubramaniam L. -- http://www.proz.com/profile/102559
Ritu Bhanot -- http://www.proz.com/profile/15075
Ashutosh Mitra -- http://www.proz.com/profile/1273307
Lalit Sati -- http://www.proz.com/profile/911036
Amar Nath -- http://www.proz.com/profile/1041470
Sanjeev Poonia -- http://www.proz.com/profile/1151815
dhsanjeev -- http://www.proz.com/profile/1129108

Balasubramaniam L., the team leader of the Hindi L10n team, had this to say about the team's work:

"The localization of the site into Hindi was one of the demands I had made to the site when I had first joined ProZ.com way back in 2006. By a pleasant turn events, this soon became a reality and I enrolled myself in the team that was doing the Hindi localization and soon found myself leading the Hindi Localization Team.

In recent days, the Hindi Localization Team has been quite active and has been spending a lot of time to achieve the goal of 100% localization of the most important portions of the site into Hindi. We hope to do it soon.

Once that goal is achieved, we also hope to localize a selection of knowledgebase articles into Hindi for the benefit of the burgeoning group of Hindi translators in ProZ.com.

We hope that this will make this site much more useful to Hindi translators and help give a boost to their translation business by allowing them to benefit from the experiences of fellow translators around the world."

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.
