But, thanks to the work of the volunteer translates at Global Voices, what little I do write can now be ready by many more people. Today I received an email from Leonard Chien, the Co-Director of the Lingua Project, telling which of my posts had been translated into which languages:
One Blogger’s Determination to Help Baby Kamba in Madagascar was translated into French by Lucie Marie Dorion, Italian by Stefano Ignone and Spanish by Maria Florencia Puente.
Public Health Projects to Use Citizen Media to Empower Community Voices was translated into Bangla by Sonia, French by Claire Ulrich, Italian by Tamara Nigh, Macedonian by Elena Ignatova, Spanish by Adriana Gutierrez, Simplified Chinese by Leonard and Traditional Chinese by Leonard.
These people are amazing. The posts I write aren’t known for being brief so it really means a lot that all of these translators took the time to translate the entire text. Next time we’re at a bar, mojitos are on me. 🙂 Here’s a photo of Leonard while he was visiting Chris and Hanako in Japan:
