In early November, I received an email from LiveJournal Translation Coordinator Ryan Fitzpatrick seeking active translators still willing to work on this project. I replied saying that I haven't been active, but I'm willing to give it another go.

This morning, I realised that I've been upped to the Maintainer of of this community... after getting an email saying that lj_malay has been upgraded to a Permanent Account.

Ok... I don't recall asking, but I was gonna offer if sol didn't want to do it anymore. You still there sol?

Rambling aside, this is a roll call. If you still want to help translate LJ to Malay, reply here and we'll get this place organised. :-)

Thanks for the explanation. Yes. I can see the control panel.

I'm not a professional translator or anything. But I can find the time and offer my help if you need more people.

I also have a friend who recently got herself a lj though she hasn't made an entry as yet. She is a professional translator though.

How many more people do you need?

I would have to say I'm better at coordinating a project than I am at translating itself. My Malay is rusty and I'll need any help I can get! :D

The more people, the faster we can get this done. If you're friend is interested, get her in! Professional translators are more than welcomed!

We'll plug around for interested people soon. I just want to see where existing members stand and establish a work process.

I think the people in-charge are still sorting out things at their end, so we won't officially kick off until I hear more from them. At the moment, I think I'll just spiff up the layout and userinfo, and do some general rallying.

Okay, then. Sign me up!

And I'll ask my friend if she's interested. I'm positive that she'll be very interested. It's just that I have to wait for a month to ask her because she's back in Malaysia for a holiday.

But I think she'll be a great help because she's written a research paper on the difficulty of translating IT/computer terms from English to Malay.
