Launch of Translate Science

We are a new working group that wants to build tools to make #translations of scientific articles/reports/books, abstracts, titles and terms more accessible and (thus) stimulate the production of such translations.

#Introduction #Introductions #translation #science #scientificLiterature #ScholarlyLiterature #OpenScience #OpenAccess

We launched a new group to promote the translation of the scientific literature variable-variability.blogspot.

We are naturally also on the Fediverse: @TranslateScience

In my own post on the group I write about how I changed from thinking English is just a basic science skill, like statistics and coding, to starting this group due to my work as #climatologist.

Translating scientific works is part of #OpenScience. Language barriers should not waste scientific talent.

It wouldn't be possible without the help and advice of @mellifluousbox. More to follow in blog form.
