Re: [Elementary-l10n-es] What's up with the 18 proposed member for the spanish translator team???
Yeah, you are right Eduard, it seems that we are not accepting people, but
the reality is another.
In the translation team there is a disclaimer that says "*Apply when you
are experienced enough*", and it's stated clearly that they can help the
translation process (and I ensure that most of them help a lot, but as
said, there are some mistakes --a few don't even check for the Guidelines).
Above all, thanks for understanding our situation; as a coordinator of
other teams and member of the Spanish team I must say that ensuring a good
and neutral translation of the last one is absolutely complicated.
