Subject: Opening the SW List to ALL Languages...
August 21, 2000
Dear SignWriting List Members:
Our List is very international, with members from 24 countries. There
are so many beautiful signed languages in the world...ASL is only one
of many...and SignWriting can write them all...
In the past we discussed opening the SignWriting List to any spoken
language....I would like to experiment with opening the List to all
Why? Because I am hoping our Deaf members from Brazil and other
countries will feel better about posting questions to the List in
their native languages...Feel free to write your messages in
Portuguese - that is fine with me!
If you speak English, and you do not know other languages...that is
OK too! Continue to post in your language. You can do one of three
1. Ignore the messages that are not in your language.
2. Learn the other languages (grin....not practical, I know ;-)
3. Or go to this web page:
AltaVista Translation Service on the Web (free)
Paste the message into their translation box on the web, and ask it
to translate it to your language - the software is astonishingly
good, considering the complexities of translations.
I want to give technical support to the world's signed languages, and
this is the only way I know! I hope you all will support me in this
Let us at least give it a try and see what happens....
