Our translation pilot has graduated!

Starting at the end of the month, Community Translation will be a part of the Church's Simply Serving platform.

Simply Serving is a Web site that brings together online Church service opportunities in one place - things like checking the formatting of Ensign articles, tagging pictures and videos, etc.

Everyone should begin logging in through the Simply Serving Web site (, using your LDS Account. You will need to set up your Lingotek profile again, and this will reset your points. We apologize for any inconvenience and want to say a huge "Thank you!" to everyone who participated in our pilot program.

Project overviews

posted May 19, 2010, 9:06 AM by Greg Perkins   [ updated Aug 23, 2010, 10:10 AM by Mike Eckerdt ]

We've added a new section to the wiki: Project Overviews. This section contains a list of the projects being worked on, along with overviews of the projects, a list of the project languages, and a project-specific glossary.

Right now, the glossaries are very basic: they may be empty (please help fill them up) and they are just simple tables. We are working toward a more functional glossary that is also integrated into Lingotek.

Please add to these project pages and add terms/translations to the glossaries.
