German Translators Needed!

Send Article to a Friend

German Translators Needed! Our German translation team has dwindled in size and available time, so much so that they haven't been able to translate TidBITS for a while now. (Our Japanese, Dutch, and French translations are still going strong; Spanish and Russian are in need of new translation teams.) If you can spend a little time each week helping to translate TidBITS into German, or helping put together and distribute the finished product (for those who are fluent German editors but aren't as comfortable with translation), the German-speaking Macintosh community will thank you. For more information, please contact Heinz Gnehm <gnehm@infotrax.ch>. Thanks for helping out! [ACE]
