Looking for translators

February 15th, 2007

I would love to publish WeblogToolsCollection in languages other than English. I know that I can install translator plugins and other software but machine translation leaves a lot to be desired, is slow and load intensive, readers miss out on the discussions and it is just less fulfilling as a read.

Since there has been some interest in French and Spanish language translations, I am seeking a couple of authors who are willing to do the following:

  • Translate all (new) posts from into their respective language and make a daily commitment to posting changes and updates
  • Moderate and answer comments
  • Post any new material you find relevant to blogging in general and WordPress in particular
  • Co-operate, share ideas and news with other authors
  • Be user centric
  • Fluent in French or Spanish. English language proficiency required.

This is an experiment/brainstorm/brainfart and I am not sure whether there is even an audience. Remuneration will be involved. Please drop me a note if you are truly interested and mention any relevant links. If you are willing to translate in another language not mentioned above and believe there is an audience, I would love to hear from you as well.

    lol – in my mind i`m not lazy :) it`s just a nickname, short, easy to write and remember =) hm.. perfect for lazy boys.. but i think, i can do it, enough time and a wordpress fan :)

    I’d like to translate it into Spanish as well.. But I imagine you found somebody already! Let me know otherwise.

  13. Davide Tarasconi (1 comments.) says:

    I can lend a hand for italian translations, if needed.
    I can’t tell you if there’s an audience, English is so widespread used in the blogosphere that many other languages (italian, in particular) are just niches. There are niches, not audiences… ;-)

    BTW I don’t think that you`re getting a lot of visits from middle east and north Africa, anyway if I`m wrong or you like the idea, drop me a mail and we`ll talk more.

    Why not contact the American Translators Association? You can search their translator directory on the Web site by language combination and direction to find the appropriate person. URL is:
