Bilingual? Trilingual?

The UW's Turing Center needs help with a project involving communication across dozens of languages. If you're fluent in both English and one of the languages listed below (native proficiency preferred), you could be eligible to win fabulous prizes -- er, nothing, except the privilege of helping to enable "panlingual" communication.

Albanian, Arabic, Armenian, Aymara, Breton, Bulgarian, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, Georgian, Greek, Hebrew, Hindi, Hmong, Indonesian, Japanese, Kabyle, Korean, Kurdish, Lithuanian, Maori, Maya, Polish, Quechua, Sicilian, Spanish, Swedish, Tagalog, Tamil, Telugu, Thai, Tok Pisin, Turkish, Turkmen, Ukrainian, Vietnamese, Wolof, Zulu (Edited 29 April to show languages still needed)

You'll be asked to evaluate the correctness of translations between English and another language. This will take about two hours and can be completed anywhere that you have Internet access and a Web browser. The project timeline calls for the evaluations to take place sometime during the first three weeks of May.

Two volunteers are needed for each language we evaluate, so feel free to share this announcement with anyone who you think might be interested. To volunteer, please fill out the survey at

Thanks for your help!
