This is teamwork oriented operation. My mission is to increase and enhance the knowledge of cultures in the world through the facets of language and with mutual respect.
Rules of conduct:
*All critiques, or feedback that is positive should be addressed in public forums, with star ratings, and comments for peer viewing.
*All critiques, or feedback that is negative or could be interpreted so should be channeled through a PM so that there is confidentiality. The person effected has the option then to address the issue and by what means.
*Comments without a positive solution will not be acknowledged. Trolls will receive no replies. Accusations are not solutions.
Those who make it commonplace to do so will receive no thanks or votes, so it is in everyone's interest to work together. I am always vigilant of good work in many languages. This is a learning environment.
Problem solving requires: Identification, variables involved, teamwork action, and resolution. Succinctly put that means if you can fault find, you can problem solve. If you don't observe these steps then you become part of the problem and effect the efficiency of operations. Do not strive to become part of the problems of the world and fail our mission.
The Golden Rule: Do Unto Others As You Would Have Them Do Unto You...
***You are an ambassador of your country and your conduct is a direct reflection of that. Always remember that.***
Please make replies or inquires to my email (non-LT one) in English. It does not understand other languages. They appear as machine code. I do not know if attachments can be opened in original languages. If English is a problem send the message via PM (site email) in your language I will answer. This site has the option to post correspondence. If you have a problem with English, post it in the language you are most comfortable with. If there is a need to transcribe non-latin based language lyrics (Cyrillic-based and such) I will give it more attention. Languages of the Americas, Western Europe, Pinyin and the like would be languages that one can learn to pronounce without learning the complete language. I have an vast array of language experience. This includes both current and historical languages. Most, formal education and/or residence in those countries. Priority - endangered languages.
I will assist anyone in anyway possible for as long as it takes to get the job done! I expect that if there is a criticism, there is a resolution that will be shared. If I make mistakes I want to know not only how, or why, but also what is/are the alternatives to review (in confidence). I am very open to 'catching hell'. It seems to be a life ambition:) Remember to err is human, to forgive-divine. You will be treated by me at all times with mutual cooperation and respect. If at any time you do not feel so let me know and I will try to resolve it in a timely manner.
Linguistics have two major cornerstones that are necessary through life. They are Diplomacy and Tact. Failure to understand that will be a detriment to the mission of promoting understanding in the world in the big picture. It also will make the difference between sitting day to day in an unwindowed, unventilated, solitary transcribing job or becoming a translator for a world leader or a major corporation in an individual's aspirations. The world is what you make of it.
