Time to Celebrate!
Bonjour a tous et toutes,
Welcome to all of our new translators, and Hello to all of you who have been volunteers with us for a while!
We celebrate you all!
We are so proud to have all of you participate in this very innovative crowd-sourced translation pilot program!
But is it fair to call it a "pilot" anymore as we have recently reached 1000, yes, ONE THOUSAND translations from French to English of journal entries written by our Sisters in the Democratic Republic of the Congo!
Congratulations to all of you for contributing your time, skills and energy to ensuring that the Voices of the Mama Shujaa are broadcasted to a larger audience thanks to your English translations!
