Process for Conducting a Translation

- 2Make sure that there is a real need for this language version. Connect with other groups to ensure there is a dissemination plan involving organizations in that country or connected to that cultural group.
- 3If you would like to translate the book as a member of a translation team, please READ THIS PAGE AND complete this SURVEY.
- 4Wait to hear from us. In general we prefer to work either with people we know or with teams connected to an established organization. Your request needs to be approved by Chandra Ghosh Ippen , and while we appreciate your desire to support this effort, we may not be able to track and approve all requests as we want to ensure that we can complete those that we commit to. We also do this all pro bono in our spare time.
- 5English PDF files are downloadable from: https://piploproductions.com/trinka-and-sam-virus/. We will also provide you with translation files if your team is approved for translation including Google sheets to assist with line by line translation (use this when we are formatting the books for you) and Adobe Photoshop versions if you have the capacity to format the book yourselves (this is preferable for us).
