Dear SignWriting List:
We are close to announcing the new SignMaker 2015 for iPad, iPhone and computer desktops. It will be announced hopefully by the end of next week.

But we need your help …

We want to have the user interface available in as many spoken languages and sign languages as possible…

Today, I am writing to ask for the spoken language translations of the terms listed below. We would love to include as many spoken languages as possible.

Can you send us, here on the SignWriting List, the translation of these terms in your spoken language?

Many thanks for your help… all languages are welcome ...
