TVP Press Kit

A proofreader in our team spotted a typo in the TVP Press Kit, it's just a little inconsistency in numbers and you can also check it yourself by comparing string 92 (page 7 in the pdf) with string 133 (page 9 in the pdf). We already got in touch with Roxanne to clarify this point and she confirmed that they "completed a World Lecture Tour, speaking in over 18 countries" (not 30 counties as written in pootle).

Locations: templates/tvp_press_kit.txt:92 ( http://pootle.zmlingteam.org/it/tvp_pres…te/#unit=805535 )
In 2010 Jacque Fresco and Roxanne Meadows completed a World Lecture Tour, speaking in over 30 countries.

Locations: templates/tvp_press_kit.txt:133 ( http://pootle.zmlingteam.org/it/tvp_pres…ate#unit=805548 )
In 2010 Jacque Fresco and Roxanne Meadows traveled to over 18 Countries and gave more than 26 successful presentations about the Venus Project.

So, as suggested by Roxanne, for the final proofreading we downloaded the press kit directly from the VP website, here.


Hugs :)

Quoted

Some of Fresco's Inventions and Designs:\n
• Systems for noiseless and pollution free aircraft\n
• A new aircraft wing structural system, patented by the US Air Force\n
• An electrostatic system for the elimination of sonic boom for Raymond DeIcer\n
"The Aluminum Trend House," a prefabricated house designed and developed for Mike Shore and Earl Muntz, 1945\n
• Developed equipment ranging from 3-dimensional x-ray units to electronic surgical instruments for the medical field


I am fairly certain that even in english comas go after the quotation marks :)

So yeah Flkcija, I refer to it as the comma wars, wherein the American grammar style is comma within the quotes and the British style is comma after (outside) the quotes, so in a way either style is acceptable. Perhaps Lady Di can make the call.

SO team- other than the above nuance what's the dispo on this guy?
