Dutch TZM is back for translating

Hi!


It has been a while since I've seen a forum :-)
The Dutch TZM team is reorganizing, so we're also setting up a new team for translations. I've been active in the movement since 2009.
I have a few questions. We want to translate some flyers from Em Boom (the guy who also made the ZDay Berlin flyers) to Dutch. We would like to do that in the Linguistic Team's Pootle platform. But I don't seem to be able to add any extra projects. Is this even possible for a mere mortal like me? There are a few flyers and stickers we want to translate. For example this one: https://drive.google.com/drive/#folders/…WklhMUE3TE5TcUU

We also want to translate a few Zeitgeist video's like e.g. this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9rAQeBx22cU
That would be done with DotSUB I suppose. But I can't find the global team. Or is this not important? Can I just create a Dutch team?



Thanks!

Hi,

It is possible to add new projects to Pootle, but not by everyone. The Pootle administrators are the ones who carry out the maintenance of the platform. Generally speaking, adding a project to Pootle may not be the best solution for small and temporary projects because the adding and supporting of a project in Pootle creates various administrative tasks and adds complexity.

In regards to videos, the one you linked to is available for translation already. Here you can see a list of videos available for translation (not fully up to date, as I can see): http://wiki.linguisticteam.org/w/Video_Working_Locations

Thanks! My question about videos is clear now, that list is also very handy. There are by the way quite a lot flyers that we want to translate with a lot of text, e.g.: https://drive.google.com/drive/#folders/…YXJqS3VfSm5xRDg

And more, so it would be nice to use the TZM Pootle for that. Otherwise we'll just use Google Docs. Thanks!
