Help Translate a Book

Hey Everyone,

I know a lot of people would like to get more practice with Esperanto and I thought I would try out Google Translator Toolkit and see how it goes. So, basically I've added "The Lost Face" by Jack London from Gutenberg Books (copyright free books) and Google generates a very terrible translation which we can then crowdsource edit. What do you think? A whole book for translation practice!

If you want to join the project, head over to my blog and message me on Tumblr. I'll add you to the project and we can get started.

I recommend picking up a book in Esperanto, a dictionary, and a book for learning it. That should get you fluent in no time. Going to meet-up helps SO much too.

Even as a beginner you should be able to do some helping, and at least learn something!

No biggie! If this works out I hope to keep the project going with other books in the future. Just keep practicing. :)
