A consideration on TVP Press Kit, Posters and Brochure

Hi everyone,

Maybe some of you have noticed that a lot of content that is found in The Venus Project's materials like the Brochure , Press Kit and Posters , is also found on TVP's website and in the book Designing the Future. So, in an effort to avoid translating the same content again and again, we've compiled a little resource that may help all language teams. It basically describes where the content of these items comes from, so that the different parts of the content of the Brochure/Press Kit/Posters can be easily taken and compiled together, in order to get a complete translation.

Press Kit

You know that the Press Kit is in Pootle and can be translated directly there, but it can save you a lot of time and efforts if you take the bits that you have already translated (if you've translated the TVP's website and/or Designing the Future). So when you work on the Press Kit, please take a look at this:

For the first page look at the first paragraph here: http://www.thevenusproject.com/en/the-venus-project
Parts of page three are taken from FAQ#1.
Parts of page five are taken from FAQ#2.
Page six is taken from http://www.thevenusproject.com/en/jacque-fresco/resume
Page seven is taken from http://www.thevenusproject.com/en/jacque-fresco/resume
(Note: "In 2010 Jacque Fresco and Roxanne Meadows completed a World Lecture Tour, speaking in over 30 countries." - the correct figure here is 18 countries, as is said on page 9.)
Page eight is taken from http://www.thevenusproject.com/en/jacque…roxanne-meadows
Parts of page nine are taken from http://www.thevenusproject.com/en/the-ve…research-centre




Brochure

To get the English text contents of the Brochure, please get in touch with me. The reason the Brochure is not in Pootle, again, is because we'd like to avoid doing the same work twice, as almost all of its content is already found in Pootle, but just in different places. Here's where exactly:

Page 1 of the Brochure is taken from FAQ#1.
Page 2 is taken from FAQ#1.
Page 3 is taken from http://www.thevenusproject.com/en/the-ve…e-based-economy
Page 4 is taken from The Best That Money Can't Buy.
Page 5 is taken from Designing the Future (chapter: Cities That Think).
Page 6 is taken from:
- http://www.thevenusproject.com/en/technology/city-systems
- Designing the Future (chapter: Cities in the Sea)
Page 7 is taken from:
- http://thevenusproject.com/en/technology/construction
- http://thevenusproject.com/en/technology/transportation
Page 8 is taken from:
- http://www.thevenusproject.com/en/technology/housing
- Designing the Future (chapter: Cities in the Sea)
- http://www.thevenusproject.com/en/technology/city-systems
Page 9 is taken from http://thevenusproject.com/en/jacque-fresco/resume
Page 10 is taken from http://thevenusproject.com/en/jacque-fresco/resume
Page 11 is taken from http://thevenusproject.com/en/jacque-fresco/roxanne-meadows
Page 12 is taken from http://thevenusproject.com/en/the-venus-…research-centre




Posters

To get the English text contents of the Posters, please get in touch with me. The reasoning here is the same. Compile, rather than translate again.


First poster is taken from FAQ #1.
Second poster is taken from http://www.thevenusproject.com/en/the-ve…e-based-economy
Third poster is taken from:
- http://www.thevenusproject.com/en/techno…ties-in-the-sea
- http://www.thevenusproject.com/en/technology/transportation
- Designing the Future (DTF), chapter: Cities in the Sea
- The Best That Money Can't Buy (TBTMCB)
Fourth poster is taken from:
- http://thevenusproject.com/en/technology/city-systems
- DTF, chapter: Cities That Think
Fifth poster is taken from:
http://www.thevenusproject.com/en/technology/construction
Sixth poster is taken from:
- certain parts are from DTF, chapter: Emerging Into a Saner Future
- http://thevenusproject.com/en/technology/energy
Seventh poster is taken from:
- http://www.thevenusproject.com/en/technology/housing
- http://www.thevenusproject.com/en/techno…ties-in-the-sea
- certain parts are from DTF, chapter: Cities in the Sea
- http://www.thevenusproject.com/en/technology/city-systems
Eight poster is taken from:
- certain parts are from DTF, chapter: Cities That Think
- http://www.thevenusproject.com/en/technology/transportation



So that's it! For any questions, please post on this thread. :)

@haytham.bakroun: You have worked on these translations, right? Do you have a link to its location so we can proofread and send them to TVP after so they create the PDFs?

Great news Tarek!! :)
Haytham gave me a link to a sheet where he was working on it. I'll put it here. Do you have access to it too? Are there any more sheets or just this one?
