(1) Translators who are also musicians
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Among the multi-talented translators and interpreters out there are translators who are also musicians. Member Berni Armstrong -- http://www.proz.com/profile/2394 -- is one of them. He has recently posted a video of his song "No Tengo Marca" and a version of this song translated to English, "Brand Name Blues."

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

Saleh Chowdhury -- http://www.proz.com/translator/19114
Lubain Masum -- http://www.proz.com/profile/560563
keshab -- http://www.proz.com/profile/77977
Roy Chaudhuri -- http://www.proz.com/translator/40708
Rabeya Akhter -- http://www.proz.com/profile/77686
Md Abu Alam -- http://www.proz.com/translator/1084453
Ziaur Rahman -- http://www.proz.com/profile/1270660

Saleh Chowdhury, the team leader of the Bengali L10n team, had this to say about the team's work:

"This has become possible by the contribution of all the team members. I guess ProZ.com is the only website which has been localized into so many languages - which is a true reflection of the love of translators for this #1 translation portal!"

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.
