Assistance with translation from English into Afrikaans

Hi there

I am new to the group and would love to help out. Please let me know if any assistance is needed with regards to Afrikaans translation / proofreading? I don't have any experience in this regard by I am Afrikaans speaking and would love to assist if possible.

I do not currently have any specific materials in my care but I would like to assist with the translation / proofreading of any of the available TVP or Zeitgeist materials. How do I get started and where can I find the relevant materials?

Thanks! :)

It seems to me that there is no Afrikaans team right now. So you could establish the working processes in relation to the LTI guidelines yourself. Please, for the start look here: http://wiki.linguisticteam.org/w/FirstTi…eral_Guidelines
and here: http://wiki.linguisticteam.org/w/LTI_English_Guidelines

I built up the German team myself so I can tell you that if you work regularly and create texts or subtitles with good quality others speaking Afrikaans will join in and help.

The materials you need can be found in the following locations.
Text: http://forum.linguisticteam.org/language…terials-pootle/
Video: http://forum.linguisticteam.org/language…iptions-dotsub/

For text translations you will need a Pootle account and for video translations a Dotsub account. I would suggest creating a thread in the Afrikaans forum for each material you are working on and writing down there where the working location can be found and what the status of the project is. That way others arriving later see what you did and what they have to do next.

If you have further questions it's your turn to ask them now. :)
