Hi everyone,

Could you all take a look at the following and help make the text better? I think it needs some improvement.

The following text is part of a template that will be translated into our 100 or so supported languages. I hope that we can improve the EN language used in the message before it is sent for translation into our Pootle system.

I would like to examine both syntax, punctuation etc. for the EN language as well as the proper choice and flow of words.

Deadline max. to complete: about a couple of days, less if possible.

Here is the English template:


Thank you very much for your e-mail and your interest in LibreOffice.

Due to the increasing popularity of the free office suite, we receive
lots of support requests day by day. Unfortunately, we can't reply
personally to every e-mail, as our engagement in the project is
completely on a volunteer basis and in our spare time. This often
demands several hours of volunteer engagement per day, leaving no time
to respond to individual requests.

However, the Community does offer a large variety of mailing lists to
support its users. We have compiled an overview at

Please have a look at these pages, and send your inquiry to our mailing
lists. Chances are high that your problem then will be solved very soon.
