We want to grow and keep the Translatum Greek Translation forum as a great forum for Greek translators. A place where can learn, share, and “dislocate language into meaning” together!
In order for us all to enjoy our visits to the Greek Translation Forum, a few rules need to be placed and followed for the benefit of all ...
1. No spamming
Spamming is characterized by the initiation of threads or posts that contribute nothing to a forum, be it off topic or on topic. Examples include: empty posts, posts with few words that have no relation to the current thread or discussion and those posts that state they are spam, either to annoy or increase a member's post count. This determination is made by the forum Moderator or Administrator and is not up for discussion.
2. Stay on Topic.
Posts in a particular forum need try and stay on topic. If you want to talk about something that is drastically removed from the topic of a forum, please take it to another, correct topic. We welcome most general conversation in the "Fun for Translators" and “General Discussion” fora.
3. Translation help.
Do not post the same topic in more than one boards. If you want a phrase or word translated use only this phrase or word as the subject and do not say something like "I want a two-word translation from English into Greek". Just post the "two words" or whatever in the English->Greek forum. (Remember to post it in the Ancient Greek forum if it is from / into ANCIENT Greek).
If you ask for translation help please limit your query to 12 words and ALWAYS provide CONTEXT. If you want help with something bigger than that then post it at the “Translation Services” forum so that you may find someone to provide you with this service on a payment basis.
4. Be Respectful!
No Flames of any kind against a member, or group of members. Flames are considered a deliberate personal attack on another member or group of members. Having a difference of opinion is fine, but if it gets out of hand and turns into a fight to get the biggest jab at the other person, then its gone too far.
If you are an experienced translator and a long standing member in translation communities, act like one. Lead by example and assist other newer members rather then attacking them. We look upon our veteran members to use this opportunity to teach the newer members the appropriate way to use these message boards.
Treat new members with respect, and visa versa. You were new at one point, as was everyone else. Please treat newcomers to the forums with respect, and new members should treat everyone else the same way.
5. Avoid Greeklish
English and Greek are the main languages of the forum. By all means other languages can also be used but try as much as possible to AVOID GREEKLISH! Greek is such a beautiful language and we should all be able to show at least a basic level of commitment to its beauty!
And if this argument does not move you, what sort of impression, really, would you give to a putative client who might be reading the forum and trying to find a translator to assign his/her job? That of one who cannot be bothered to write proper Greek. And if one cannot be bothered to write proper Greek why should they bother to deliver proper translations?
There is a way you can get away with it though, just go http://speech.ilsp.gr/greeklish/greeklishdemo.asp type your Greeklish text, convert it and copy/paste the Greek version! Be aware, they have a 255 character limit!
6. Image use.
You may use images for your profile but they need to be hosted elsewhere. I.e. if you have a pic in another site right click on it and copy/ paste the address to the appropriate field in your profile.
No Avatar, Custom Title, and/or Username Changing Abuse. These are a luxury and abuse of them will result in them being lost.
7. Signature Use.
Please try keep your signature to 3 lines or less. It helps keep our threads cleaner looking.
8. Enjoy yourself!
You can have a great time posting and we look forward to your feedback.
