Newsletter

Post by avij » Wed Dec 22, 2004 8:10 pm

Hi, we're going to send out an EBT newsletter very soon. Looks like some of our regular translators are already on their Christmas vacation, so in order to get the newsletter emailed in the appropriate language for each EBT user we'd need to recruit some additional assistance to our translation team.

If you're fluent in German, Italian, Portuguese or Swedish please PM me immediately. We're also lacking a translation to Esperanto, but I think those 9 people won't really mind if they receive the newsletter in English (but it'd be cool if we did have that translation). Greek and Finnish translations are currently being written.

The fact that the editorial article wishes everyone Merry Christmas should be an indication of the tight schedule :wink: There may be one additional article added to the translation tool later this evening, and the English language will be fine-tuned this evening as well.

It's still possible to participate in translating the newsletter to the languages I listed in my previous message.

A notice to existing translators: the newsletter preview page I mentioned in my email / PM is now (mostly) functional, have a look at it.

To prevent the common "nah, I guess someone else has already volunteered" effect, I'm going to announce when I've received offers to help in translation. An Italian translator volunteered, but it's unlikely that the translation would be ready before Christmas, so I'd appreciate having someone else as a backup for Italian. Portuguese translation is also being worked on but it's not finished yet.

Another notice to existing translators: there have been slight changes to the newsletter, please check Babel and update the translations accordingly.

Ho ho ho, Merry Chrismas!

The newsletter has now been published, enjoy! Due to the way the newsletter is emailed, it may take several hours for it to reach your email inbox.

I'd like to thank the entire newsletter team (especially Blueman) and the translators, this was an important step in the EBT newsletter history. From now on we'll be using the new process for creating the newsletter, and I hope we'll be able to publish the newsletter more often than before.

The Italian newsletters were sent a bit later than the rest, but now they've been sent as well. If you still haven't received your newsletter by email, it may have ended up to your junk mail folder, or alternatively your mailbox has been full or your email account has been marked as inactive (especially true for hotmail users).

Alright, the new newsletter is mostly finished and it's now being translated. If you have an account in Babel you should now log in and update the translations. To see the current translation status you can use the web page that I mentioned in my previous email to the translators in December. If you haven't received that email and you're a translator, PM me and I'll tell you the address.

I've just started emailing the latest newsletter. It's going to take a while until all the emails are sent, but most of you should have the newsletter in your email inbox by noon tomorrow. The Italian and Spanish newsletters have not yet been sent, they need a little bit more work before they can be sent out.

Thanks to everyone for participating in writing and translating the newsletter, it was a major task for all of us :wink:

The Spanish newsletter has been sent as well.

It appears that the French newsletter had some problems with the character set, at least for people who use a hotmail.com email account and MS Internet Explorer. We're investigating the problems.

We got translators but they didn't translate it.
So the problem is indeed the translation.

Some additional support for the Italian language is indeed welcome! Feel free to send avij a PM if you want to volunteer.
