Where in the world are Global Voices translators?

Lingua Project These days, Global Voices’ Lingua translators produce 15 different language editions of this website (18, if you count the up-and-coming Swahili, Russian, and Serbian) so people around the world who don't speak English, can join the global conversation.

We have welcomed more than 70 volunteer translators from at least 21 countries to the Global Voices community in the past year and a half.

It's not an easy task to keep up with the 150+ authors, editors, and translators who regularly contribute their energies to Global Voices.

We have no physical office, no geographical headquarters, and only rarely have a chance to meet face to face. You can read more about how Global Voices works on our About page.

Claire Ulrich who heads Global Voices in French has plotted the approximate locations of all Lingua translators on this Google map.

Please help spread knowledge of the many different Lingua translation sites by linking to them in your blog.
