Re: [Elementary-l10n-es] What's up with the 18 proposed member for the spanish translator team???


Eduard: was the threat necessary? What's wrong with you?

I'm a member of the team, I frequently check suggestions from people.
If they have not been accepted into the team is because they have no
experience and make frequent mistakes. You do not speak Spanish, so
you can't check that (I've seen you've made very funny Spanish
translations in your Cooking Lens, which I had to correct).
