(1) Platform built for Translators without Borders being made available to interested ProZ.com members
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The translation management platform built by ProZ.com to support the volunteer work of Translators without Borders is being made available to ProZ.com members who are interested.

The "translation center" is a simple tool that enables you to efficiently route work to translators with whom you already have a relationship. The tool has a nice interface, there are good communications features, it integrates with ProZ.com profiles, and clients can check in if they like. A first round of improvements from members currently using the platform is being made. See the forum announcement for more details on how the translation center works. Subscribe to posts in that thread to receive notification of the next call for members interested in using the platform.

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

Ivelina Drakova-Eismann -- http://www.proz.com/translator/632380
Sevda Ros -- http://www.proz.com/translator/911546
Krasimira Drumeva -- http://www.proz.com/translator/1654136
Alekber Yumer -- http://www.proz.com/profile/116350
Vilina Svetoslavova -- http://www.proz.com/profile/1602839


Krasimira Drumeva had this to say about the team's work:

"I joined the localization team at a phase when a considerable amount of the work had already been done and I would like to thank my colleagues for the solid basis they have provided for the team to continue the Bulgarian localization project. I'm very happy to be part of this joint effort to make ProZ.com more understandable and comfortable for all translators and their potential clients who prefer to use the site in their native language, because it is only natural that the greatest translation workplace is localized in the largest number of languages by real professionals."

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.
