SuSanA vision documents now with open access clause instead of all rights reserved

Note by moderator: This post was split off from this thread where the open access issue for SuSanA was discussed in detail: forum.susana.org/forum/categories/10-gen...ications-open-access
++++++++++


Dear all,


As Elizabeth already mentioned:

The next step is to use the same text also at the end of all the SuSanA publications*, starting with the vision document which we actually have in 12 languages already, see here in the SuSanA library:
[url=http://]http://www.susana.org/en/resources/library?search=vision2008[/url]

Therefore we need your help to translate the new copyright information into those 12 languages for which we have the vision document already.
Can someone please help us out with the translation of the following passage into:

- Amharic
- Arabic
- Chinese
- Hindi
- Portuguese
- Kiswahili
- Russian
- Urdu

This is the text that needs to be translated please:

Thanks for your support!
It is very much appreciated!

Re: [SuSanA forum] Decision reached: SuSanA is making its publications open access (General announcements from or about SuSanA)

It should be Arabic, and not Arab.
You can add Sindhi. Sindhi is widely spoken here (Sindh, Pakistan).

Note by moderator (EvM):
Thanks, I have corrected the "Arabic" in Jasmin's post.
The languages that she listed there are those for which we already have the SuSanA vision document translated. If you or someone else would like to provide a translation of the English vision document to Sindhi that would be very nice. It would make it the 13th language of the SuSanA vision document.
This is the link to the English vision document:

Dear Manoj Jain,

That is great news, thanks a lot!

There are no specific guidelines, we just need the following passage translated:

Looking forward to your translation and maybe some other volunteers for
- Amharic
- Kiswahili
?

Dear Jasmin and Elisabeth,

Re: SuSanA vision documents now with open access clause instead of all rights reserved

Dear community,


Searching for "vision2008" you find all vision documents (except the Hindi and Amharic version which are not yet updated) with updated Copyright Information (i.e. open access clause) in our library now.

I.e. here:
www.susana.org/en/resources/library?search=vision2008

Kind Regards,
Jasmin (on behalf of the SuSanA Secretariat)

Re: SuSanA vision documents now with open access clause instead of all rights reserved

Great, thanks, Jasmin!

However, I am disappointed that the Hindi version is still missing. We have 651 SuSanA members from India ( forum.susana.org/forum/statistics?task=map ) and none of them have volunteered to translate five sentences from English to Hindi? Come on, Indian SuSanA members, someone give yourself a push... :ohmy:

This is the paragraph that needs to be translated from English to Hindi:

Copyright information

All SuSanA materials are available under the open access licence CC-BY SA. Proper acknowledgement of the source should always be given when materials are used.

Or how about someone from the new India Sanitation Coalition? ( forum.susana.org/forum/categories/87-new...ganisation-of-susana )

The difficulty with Amharic I can understand a bit better (we only have 103 SuSanA members from Ehtiopia).

Regards,
Elisabeth
