Instructions for Translators

Send an email to the Translators with all of the Excel documents attached. Also be sure to include the instructions for the translator below:

To translate the excel documents:

  1. Please do NOT touch anything in Column A, B or C.
  2. Translate EVERYTHING from column C into column D.
  3. If there is no translation for that particular item, place the English into column D.
  4. DO NOT leave anything blank in column D unless it was blank in column C.
  5. Please be sure there are no line returns in column D.
  6. Any word/phrase in brackets [[ ]] or {{ }} will be replaced by the program with numbers or text and must appear in the proper grammatical location of a translated phrase (don't translate these)
  7. Anything in pointy brackets <> is an HTML formatting command and must be preserved (don't translate - but you may need to move for grammatical accuracy)
  8. Do not add or delete rows even if they do not pertain to a particular country.
  9. Please return each spreadsheet with column D filled out.
