The main objective of Dnghu's web site is to provide information about Europaio to -at least-
every citizen of the EU. Our Group is at present too small to be able to write it in so many
languages, so we rely -when we can- on software translation. We can only read the translated pages sometimes to
try to correct major machine mistakes, but our accuracy in doing so depends on our knowledgement of
other languages and on our time to review again and again the same texts.
While we feel more or less comfortable in our native languages, and everyone feel that mistakes
can be just a source of fun among the community members, we know that it can be very
disappointing and even annoying for our readers to find big errata in other languages' texts. For
example, a 'stable' work is constantly translated as a 'stall' work, and three errors like this
one in a single page could be enough for a reader to leave Dnghu's sites.
We are asking you for help, because just one correction from each of our readers can amount to a
very good overall translation. It doesn't matter if you are a native speaker of the language or not,
you just need to speak English (and maybe the Spanish web site could be a good source for comparison)
and the other language you want to help with, and you can begin right now posting mistakes in our
forum. But please, do not concentrate your efforts just in minor
style corrections, which are more a matter of personal feelings:
in this case, it would be more efficient to dedicate your time
to help us develop Europaio grammar, vocabulary, news, etc.
