Gabriela Nikolova, the team leader of the Macedonian L10n team, had this to say about the team's work:

"The localization of ProZ.com is a very important experience which gives a better and easier understanding of many issues for our language professionals. It has opened a whole new approach to a new world of possibilities and I'm very grateful to ProZ.com for their trust and support.

The project made us (professional translators) start communicating and sharing, which is very important in our profession and the site itself was and still is the best translation community ever."

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.
