    Most time you just have to quote the author as this isn't a book but I am doing one on leopard gecko as that is popular in Korea. I lived in many countries but I guess Korean is one of my main languages. Well I didn't think you were a translator It'd be nice if this forum was more open to people who speak foreign languages. I am halfway through my leo caresheet, it doesn't seem that hard but time is problem with me too, probably not as much as you because I am still a student.
    It'd really be nice if there were extra forum for other languages and people would join in. I am sure some people in this forum can speak more than two languages and will be able to start up some discussions.

    But where would you start? There are about 6500 spoken languages. If you leave out the dying ones, you probably still end up with 3000 languages.

    Well, you could use the most spoken languages like Chinese, Japanese, French, German, Spanish... Still a lot of diversification to do...

    However, this would lead to the exclusion of knowledge, as experienced keepers might not be able to understand a certain language. But again, this is what makes GU successful (in my view): A huge international knowledgebase with information from all over the world (including natural habitat).

    Easy accessible, as we all use the same convention: One language.

    Cheers!

    As far as copyright goes, I believe that GU owns the info that gets posted on this forum. All of the caresheets here were added to this forum by the original authors...not taken from other sites, etc. However, I would expect that it's only polite to at least ask permission from the author. I can't imagine anyone having an issue with a caresheet being translated though. If you guys have the time, feel free to take on the project. I think it would be great to have the stuff translated in to as many different languages as possible. Also, I don't know how reliable it is...but there's always the google translation tool that does like 35 different languages. It may at least be of some help. By the way, it's nice to see some folks taking initiative to help the GU community. The more that people participate, the better our community does.

    I wrote my first one. This one is dependent on my knowledge so I don't think I need to address anyone but any other care sheets I would need to ask people to borrow their knowledge. It won't hurt to do it.

    Default japanese, german...

    heh, yeah...time is the issue here...just a bit of extra work here, and some babies, and already I don't have the time to even log on, much less translate care sheets. however, I still do think it's a great idea, specially since I know for a fact that good info is hard to find, at least here in Japan. I just see too many reptiles of any kind here thrown in some sort of tiny tank and left to die shortly thereafter. to add to the problem, people don't seem to like you giving them advice, more-so if the advice is time consuming, complex or suggests that more effort is needed to keep the animal happy and healthy. however, the internet is almost considered law by people here, and probably elsewhere too ( after all, if it's written on the web, it must be true, right? ) ...so offering info in other languages is definitely a good idea.

    now I just have one problem...how do I choose the care sheet to translate?

    is there maybe someone who feels confident enough about theirs that they'd like to have it translated? or, someone out there would like to have my help cause they can't quite understand one of the sheets listed here in English?

    For those of you that would like to help, just pick a caresheet, translate it, and repost it in the new language. We have a very diverse, world wide membership here and I'm sure that any offerings of caresheets in other languages would be appreciated.

    I can translate into Arabic, but I really don't have the time to do more than a few. At least not for free. :P
