Dear all - FYI

I would like to commend and publicly thank Ingrid Landfried, Gaia de Zambiasi, Sara Chan, and Aurora Humarán (my partner) for their help with the translation of a supply list that Rotary Club in Colombo, Sri Lanka, had in English.

I got in touch with the RC and told them that Aleph Translations could help out by supplying translations and/or passing the word (through ProZ.com) if they needed interpreters to go and help foreign volunteers get through with locals.

They provided a two page list with details on what they need ASAP. The document also explained how to donate money/buy meds and food through the Internet.

The addition of the Spanish, German, Italian, and French versions will enable them to distribute the list to local Rotary Clubs and relief agencies in other countries and speed up the process as they do not need it translated.

THANK YOU for you help!!!
