Topics and Discussion:
* [Vasudev Narayanan (22-Jan-22)]:
Is there any possibility to collect our volunteers' birth month or
their anniversary month? Fortnightly or monthly, we could email a
collective greeting card within the group. What do you think?
+ A friendly idea but also delicate issue, can be personal and
+ Birthday info is a personal matter, some people uncomfortable to
have it public
+ TDF also cares on privacy for legal reasons
+ TDF membership does not ask for b'day info, neither nationality,
and other info
+ Matter should be brought to membership committee and Board of
Directors for eval.
* [Rob Westein 3-feb-2022]:
3 members of the Dutch community are working on the translation of
the Base Guide. I've made some tests using MateCAT to help us
translating...that will save us a lot of time. But I noticed that
MateCAT asks private info like your contacts when register to work with
MateCAT. Some users do not want to register when this kind of info is asked.
Is it possible to have our own installation of MateCAT hosted on
TDF servers?. Hope that the registration will be easier for the users
and respect their privacy.
I'm sure that more translators would like to use this fantastic
Open Source tool.
+Experience on Matecat from Brazilians (Olivier)
+ Brazilians are using Matecat since early 2020 for Guides
+ Excellent response and high quality,~Google, Bing equ services
+ Used for 1st translation round
+ Upload chapter, run auto-translation, d/l translated
+ handles ODF, no format glitch.
+ no need for login
+ no desire to keep a pt-BR translation memory (TM)
+ sure it improves translation if TM exist but...
+ Guide updates carried directly from en-US guide changelog +
+ Community fun is to review machine translation and fix contents
+ no more language issues-> brought crowd to the doc team.
+ Matecat is open source
+ can be offered as external service or installed on premises
+ ask infra and/or set budget for
+ start with redmine ticket.
+ personal note (Olivier)
+ machine translation superseed TM in speed and effort, modulo
+ enormous savings on typing
+ excellent for pt-BR, 99% understandable (guess)
+ Matecat could deliver suggestion alongside weblate TM.
