Translation Volunteers Wanted

I am looking for volunteers to help BitPerfect take the next step in its evolution. Apple gives us the ability to customize our Apps according to the language which your Mac is set up to use. So we can provide a user interface which is customized for the language of its user. This process is termed "Localization". Since BitPerfect's customers are located all over the world, it makes sense for us to offer Localization if at all possible.

In order to do this we need the help of a small select group of volunteers who can work with us to provide translations of BitPerfect's user interface into various other languages. Ideally, we are looking for people with at least a working knowledge of BitPerfect, in order to ensure that all of the translations provided will have the proper context and use all the appropriate technical terminology. We would, of course, be very happy to acknowledge the work of all contributors on BitPerfect's "About" dialog box.

The most useful languages we are looking for would include Japanese, German, Dutch, Chinese (I don't know if OS/X supports Mandarin, Cantonese, or both), Italian, and the Scandinavian languages. That would cover more than 95% of our user base (we can speak French at BitPerfect). But we would include any other languages if volunteers were to come forward

Those interested should e-mail me.
