GOOGLE HEALTH SPEAKS AT HELP

Learn to Translate from English to Hindi using Google Translation Toolkit !

Learn a smart way to translate articles straight from the masters - GOOGLE.

HELP Library is proud to host the Health Speaks Event at Mumbai on 25th September, 2010 - at 10 am sharp.

To register please send us an email with your name, address, and confirmation latest by 20th September 2010. Registrations will be accepted on a first come first basis - only limited seats available.

We will provide you with the laptop - and also give you a Google certificate for your
participation !

This event is about Google.org's health team which is currently working on a project that is exploring ways to increase the quantity of high-quality health information online, particularly in languages other than English.

One way that we are working on this is through the creation of a community of volunteer health translators who will translate high-quality Wikipedia health articles from English to other languages, including Hindi.

We are reaching out to bilingual Medical/Nursing/Public Health Professors & Students, Health NGOs and Medical Professional Associations to help build this community of volunteer health translators. We will hold trainings & events and have online training available to facilitate the community.

We have selected roughly 500 articles that are on important health topics and are of high quality.

Online translation is going to become increasingly important as the world becomes flatter ! This is a great opportunity to learn more about how to translate - and contribute to the health of Indians by sharing your knowledge !
