Translating LibraryThing? (General Talk)

This group has become officially dormant. It happens. If you want to revive this group, or create a new group on the same topic see this page.

This is for general issues with LibraryThing's new you-translate-it translation feature. Feel free to note bugs, untranslated pages and snippets.

Look here for official translation guidelines and legal language.
