Outside of being a member of the Twitter Localization Moderators team, I’m a programmer and blogger. I create web/mobile/desktop apps and write about IT. Unemployed since last week (hurray!), I’m now concentrated on freelancing. Also, I create 2D and 3D-like animations.
Greetings from the new Twitter Headquarters in San Francisco, California! First of all, we want to thank those of you who are translating Twitter into your language. With your support, we’re getting closer to making Twitter available to more people around the world.
Last May, we opened the Translation Center to 6 new languages using a new set of features we’ve created to make the translation process faster. This means that there is more automation and more efficiency, allowing for faster input from the translator community.
As a member of the Twitter Moderator program, I am responsible for ensuring that the right Hebrew translation goes through to the site -- after all, Twitter is one of the most important websites out there. By volunteering my time to make Twitter available in Hebrew, I get to help people become a part of the global online community, as most people don’t speak English. It may sound like a slogan, but it’s really important for me.
