(4) Small translation companies invited to try the ProZ.com document translation platform
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Are you thinking of buying a Translation Management System, but not sure you want to spend the money on something that seems too complex? Is a full TMS overkill for your small translation company?

ProZ.com's new document translation platform is not a full-featured TMS, but it can save time emailing, passing files, and routing work to your translators. And it's free to ProZ.com members.

Another ten or twenty small translation companies are being sought to try out the platform.

(5) Translators who are also musicians, part two
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

See more talented translator-musicians in part two of this series on language professionals who also make music. Thank you to everyone who wrote in to share their musical projects!

(6) Localization spotlight: the Javanese 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 Javanese localization team:

Istiani Prajoko -- http://www.proz.com/translator/817814
ria ulfah ardhiyani -- http://www.proz.com/translator/781630
Wiyanto Suroso -- http://www.proz.com/translator/1037215
(Claryssa) Suci Puspa Dewi -- http://www.proz.com/profile/1058695


Istiani Prajoko, the team leader, had this to say about the team's work:

"Javanese is a very rich language, and I want to introduce and show its richness to the world. Thank you, ProZ.com, for giving us a chance to do so."

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.

Thanks for reading this month. How has the first half of your 2014 in translation been so far, in comparison to last year? What changes, if any, are you planning for the rest of the year?

Happy translating,
