Dear all,

As you might know, the site has already been localized into 27 languages, something we are very proud of, but still we are continually working to increase that number.

At the moment, the site is being localized into Farsi by our localization team http://www.proz.com/team/592, that has been doing a great job. However, volunteers are always welcome to join the team, so I would like to take the chance to invite members and users of your community you to participate in the project.

Site's localization is done by volunteers, and to compensate the teams for their efforts, site localizers are provided with promotion at ProZ.com once the language has been finished and released to the public. Specifically:

- For every 250 words translated or 750 words checked, a volunteer will receive one week of promotion. This promotion consists of the following:

1. Recognition in their profiles ("This translator helped to localize ProZ.com into {language}")

2. Team members will be listed, with photos and optional bios, on the localization team page for their language. Search engine optimized links will point to these localization team bios from most ProZ.com pages when viewed in that team's language.

3. Specifically, team leaders may receive added compensation depending on whether their release dates have been met. However, all team members will receive a search engine optimized link to their profiles from the bottom of most ProZ.com pages when viewed in their language.

This promotion is significant, as it provides a substantial boost to the "page rank" of these translators' ProZ.com profiles in search engines such as Yahoo! and Google, resulting in an increase in client traffic. (ProZ.com's main pages have the highest page ranks in the industry, and these are inherited by pages we link to.)

4. In addition, team volunteers will receive browniz when their translated files are uploaded by the team leader or site staff (3 browniz for each word translated/1 brownie for each word proofread).

Please, do not hesitate to contact me if you want to participate in this project at soledad at ProZ.com dot com.

Best regards,
