Great initiative: help translate Earthquake Report

10.04.2011, Age: 3819 days

Communication of earthquake information immediately after the event can literally save lives. Earthquake Report invites people to translate this information into languages other than English.

ไทย, 中文, Français, Español, Deutch, Italiano, Türk, 日本, Hrvatski, Nederlands, Bahasa Indonesia, ქართული, Россию, Ελληνικά, Polska, Tagalog, العربية

Earthquake Report: "Help us to inform your country people about earthquakes in their local language".

So far, Earthquake Report "[...] used the automatic Google Machine translation into the major world languages. Although better than nothing, this way of translation is far from perfect and is even in some cases unreadable.

With a little effort this can be changed into a normal readable language.
Our automatic translation system offers the possibility to rectify the text on-line on the fly and even better, it is learning all the way from the rectifications we apply.

For every language earthquake-report is looking for about 3 people who are willing to upgrade our text when they have the time for it."

Earthquake Report was created by Armand Vervaeck (Belgium), who is also the main contributor.
