Translation Glossary

One of volunteer translators had the excellent idea of creating a translation glossary for this project!

This will allow us to keep track of terms that may be confusing or easily misinterpreted, and to acquire translations directly from Neema, our leader in the DRC, or through one of us that may know personally.

I have created this as a Google doc here (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0ApH9JQFObw_ldDZOR1JGQWpWMXE...). If you have terms to add to this list, please do so today!

Thank you so much,
Scott and Jade

just to be sure

Hey everybody,
Just a question to be sure how to use the glossary. If I find a term and I do now know exactly what it means, I just put it in there and Neema will take care of the translation? Or do I have first to send you a message and only when we get the translation we add the word in the glossary?
Thanks!
A.

Both?

Hi Aurore,
Just realizing that this may have been answered via email, but maybe everyone else would like to know the answer!

I think it's easiest for now if we have translators contact me directly with unclear terms, and upon translation I will add to the glossary.

In the future, when this group is more active, it will likely make sense to change this plan!

Thanks for your ongoing support,
Scott
