     17 1. It's highly recommended to find at least one more dedicated translator. A team increases the chances of completing all pages for a language and keeping them up-to-date in the future. Being able to discuss difficult passages increases the quality and frankly, working together with others is more fun. To find other translators, try posting to the [http://www.haiku-os.org/forum web forum] and the [http://www.freelists.org/list/haiku Haiku mailing list].

Everything else, how the reader is addressed, using active or passive etc. is language specific and therefore totally in your hands.[[BR]]
