Translating annotations

We got some great contacts with the Indonesian community in Indonesia itself. We could not be happier; I was told that they have been looking for and found people willing to translate the annotations that are available with the images that will be made available by the Tropenmuseum.

The annotations are in Dutch, some are also in English. The translation into Indonesian that we are discussing will be really important. It will be the Indonesions for whom this part of their cultural heritage becomes accessible. It will be the Indonesians who are best positioned to assess the annotations and improve on it.

This week a conference call is planned to discuss these things.. I find it so exciting when I consider all the possibilities.
