Gee, it took me a while to decide, but i think i'll go for the non-forum section or the Recipes & Foods. If i can do both, then both be it. I can try and then decide if i can do it, right?

Besines...
------------------------------------------------

Caray, tardé un rato en decidirme, pero creo que elegiré la sección de fuera del foro o la de Recetas y Comidas. Si puedo con las dos, que sean las dos. Puedo probar y luego decidir si puedo hacerlo, no?

Besines...

Well, while I have more time to review the contents of other sections (I am a newcomer), I guess that you'll need some extra help with the Genealogy one, so count on me for that one.

Just a suggestion to allow Castillian- or English-only members to participate: it is very useful for me, when writing in English, to have my text drafts reviewed by a native English speaker. It greatly improves the quality of the text and is, in any case, the best way to check if what I wrote truly resembles real English. So you don't really need to speak both languages to help. I feel some eight million times more comfortable when translating from English to Spanish, but could do the reverse without much trouble with the help of an English-only native speaker. That would increase the flexibility of the system if we had much more messages, or much less translators, in one of the languages.

To resume with: my suggestion is that in the couples of English native - Spanish native speakers, it is not absolutly essential that both of them spoke both languages. Specially while we get more translators working.

----------------------------------------------

Bueno, mientras tengo algo más de tiempo para revisar y conocer los contenidos de otras secciones, me parece que les vendría bien un poco más de ayuda con la de Genealogía, así que pueden contar conmigo para ella.

Una sugerencia para que los miembros que sólo hablen castellano o inglés puedan participar también: a mí me resulta muy útil habitualmente, cuando escribo en inglés, que un nativo revise mis textos. Mejora mucho su calidad y, de cualquier manera, es la mejor prueba para comprobar si lo que escribo realmente se parece en algo al inglés "de verdad." Así que en realidad no es necesario hablar los dos idiomas para ayudar en la empresa. Yo prefiero unos ocho millones de veces más el traducir de inglés a castellano, pero podría también hacer la traducción inversa sin demasiados quebrantos con la ayuda de un hablante inglés nativo. Ello incrementaría la flexibilidad y eficiencia del sistema si tuviésemos muchos menos traductores, o muchos más mensajes, en uno de los idiomas.

En resumen, que mi sugerencia es que en las parejas inglés-español de hablantes nativos, no es completamente necesario que los dos miembros hablen los dos idiomas. Sobre todo mientras conseguimos que empiecen a funcionar más equipos.

Un abrazo,
Svgev

Please sign me up for the Arts (handicrafts and literature) and Language (the entire section). If I see that I have enough time left, I'd be glad to sign up for additional sections.

Por favor apúntenme a "Artes" (artesanía y literatura) y a Lengua (toda la sección). Si veo que tengo tiempo suficiente, me apuntaré gustosamente a otras secciones.

Cheers / Saludos

Sign me up for Work&Industry plase.

After I gauge the commitment this entails I will probably ask for more.

--------------------------

Apuntadme a "Work&Industry" pro favor. Después de ver el tiempo que me lleva seguramente pediré más.

This is a very interesting idea! I like it. And for those of us who are trying to learn the other language, it offers many advantages. Recently, when Carlos helped me by translating the letter to volunteers, I found it very helpful to discuss with him word-choice options.

We could add another category to the sign-up list for any native speaker who would like to help by reviewing a draft text or otherwise consulting with other members on language issues.

Should volunteers be able to limit their work to areas of the forum, so they don't get called on too much?

What should we call this Native Language Assistants / Lectores Nativos ? or what?

¡Es una idea muy interesante! Me gusta mucho. Para quienes tratamos de aprender otra lengua, ofrece muchas ventajas. Recientemente, cuando Carlos me ayudó por traduciendo el mensaje a voluntarios, encontré muy provechoso de hablar con él de opciones entre distinctas palabras.

Podríamos añadir otra categoría a la lista de matricúlarse para cualquier hablante nativo que gustaría ayudar, repasando un texto preliminar o consultando de otra manera con otros miembros sobre cuestiones de lengua.

¿Es importante que los voluntarios sean capaces de limitar su trabajo por áreas del foro, para que no encuentren demasiados pididos?

¿Qué llamamos este clase: "Native Language Assistants / Lectores Nativos"? ¿o qué?

Gracias Art. "Native Language Assistants / Lectores Nativos" suena muy bien, y creo que describe perfectamente la idea.

Limitarse a áreas, al menos hasta que veamos cuántos mensajes podemos procesar cada uno, también me parece buena idea.

-----------------------------------------------

Thanks Art. "Native Language Assistants / Lectores Nativos" sounds good to me, and I think that it describes the idea quite accurately.

Volunteers limiting their work to specific areas also seems reasonable. Specially until we can check how many messages can process each one of us.

Let's do it, Svgev! I'll post a new chart with your explanation. If you have text to add about the purpose, etc., please let me know and I'll add it, too.

We should also write an announcement about this opportunity for the Announcements / Anuncios section of the forum (Please Read / Por favor leer). Would you be willing to post something there describing it and linking to the new thread?

You can find this new thread here:

Please sign me up for the "Music" and "About Asturias". Probably in the future I could do more sections.

Me interesan "Musica" y "sobre Asturias". Seguramente en el futuro podre encargarme de otras secciones.

Please sing me up for the "recipes and food" (dessert or meat or.... all. I don´t mind)
I prefer translate from English to Spanish, I write very bad in English but, on the contrary, I think I´ll be a good "native language assistant".


Por favor apuntadme a "Recipes and food" (postres, carnes ..o a toda la sección. No me importa)
Prefiero traducir del inglés al español porque escribo fatal en inglés pero, por el contrario, creo que seré una buena lectora nativa

Please add my name to Research-Discovery-Reconnect.
I do better translating from English to Spanish. Sin embargo, puedo intentar hacer ambas traducciones. Mi interesa sobre todo las historias familiares de los imigrantes y la sección sobre trabajo.

Hola Chris,

I know exactly what you mean. I can translate from Spanish to English reaonably well and quickly, but to translate from English into Spanish is a different story. At the very least it takes me much longer. My time is limited, so I use it where I can do the most.

Your help in translating the various messages would be very much appreciated by Suronda, Art, Terechu, me and our members. If you ever want to translate Spanish into English, you could send your translation to me for comments before posting it.

By the way, I would be interested in your comments on my translation from asturianu into English in my recent posts.

Bob Martnez
