Help Wanted

Hello my fellow brothers!

As you may or may not know, I've been VERY busy lately.  It has been over a year since I've released an update to my LRO program.  I can assure you that I am not abandoning LRO and still plan on making an update.  But for now, my attention is focused on something else...something far more important.  As you can see on the right...the countdown...I'm getting married soon!!!  :-D

Not to mention that I've been working on furnishing a house (first-time home owner here).  Gave my 2nd public talk a few weeks ago.  Working on another talk for the future.  And trying to keep up with 3 Bible studies.  So you see, I have a very good reason for being so busy.

And that's why I'm reaching out to all of you for some help!  I have a brother who is wanting to translate LRO into French.  I think that's a very good project to take on, and I would like to be able to see this accomplished soon.  He has already sent in some work, which needs to be proofread.  But...once time is very limited right now.  So...I need help...

I will need one or more volunteers to PROOFREAD the translation work. These volunteers will receive the translated text, and then they will take the text and run it through Google's translation system to ensure that it is the correct translation and makes sense. It will also help to catch spelling issues.

Additionally, the translator may have questions about certain words or phrases.  You will help to answer these questions.

In order to be a proofreader, you must meet the following requirements:

- Must have Microsoft Excel (or be capable of editing spreadsheets)
- Must be detail-oriented
- Must appreciate accuracy AND consistency
- Must have good organizational skills

If you meet these requirements and are interested, please contact me using the link at the top (or the one on the navigation menu to the right). This is a good bit of work. But the more helpers I can get, the lighter the load for everyone.  Don't worry...I will make sure you understand how to do the work, and are doing it correctly.  ;-)

If you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to ask me.


Your brother,
