Happy new year 2006 to all visitors

What has changed since the last news entry?

- has grown fast as there are now more than 1900 members and about 20 new members a day. Many new languages have been added to the interface: Chinese, Hebrew, Swedish, and Brazilian Portuguese. A big thanks to the members who translated it.

- The project section is up and running but nobody knows how it works . It's mainly dedicated to webmasters who want to translate their websites. They can submit their text to be translated on and invite their visitors to translate on will get new members and the webmasters will be able to use the translation engine of and the expertise of members.

- An affiliation program has been developed to reward those who put a link on their personal websites or blogs to talk about Instead of using the classic url, you can use this url: [linkid=w_in_[userid]]. Kiekvienas vertimas, atliktas per nario atsiųsta nuorodą į, uždirbs jums papildomų taškų (5 procentus vertimo taškų). There is also a similar affiliation link for the webmasters who manage a project on, to invite their visitors to translate their website on, with the same advantages:

- The multi-language Babylon dictionary has been inserted on the translation pages at the bottom of the side menu. It's a very useful tool and it's not intrusive at all.

- The wiki engine has been set. Some parts of the interface, as well as details and tutorials about how the website should be used, are now embedded in wiki articles. Wiki articles are more flexible than the language files of the interface, as they can be edited at any time by any member. The wiki articles of the interface can also be translated from the translation homepage using the link "Vertimų, kuriuos reikia padaryti arba atnaujinti, sąrašas [wiki]".

- It's now possible to post comments on all parts of the website, including news and wiki articles.

What's next?

- A language course section is currently under development. Each member of will be able to create a wiki lesson about his favorite language.

- A java applet is under development to offer the possibility to record and play back audio samples for the language courses.

- A java or flash applet will be developed to draw illustrations for the language courses.

- I don't understand why the ratio of members having done at least one translation is so small... Maybe I should try to improve the interface and I need your feed back on this...
