• Dear Guest,

    We've been using a forum format called vBulletin for over seven years and the program is no longer being developed, so that means no more updates or security patches. vBulletin has never been compatible with search engine optimization and it does not support the multitude of various devices most people use to access the internet, so it's time to say goodbye to vBulletin.

    For these reasons we have moved our forum to a new format that will support and encourage growth for the next generation of grower and DIY tobacco users.

    So please post any issues you're having with using the new site.

    As usual, you may login with your old password.

I'd like to open a Spanish speaking forum on the site. It would start out with a single forum and if it is successful, sub forums can be added.

The help I'm looking for is very basic right now. I'll translate some of the most important posts like "Tobacco growing FAQ" and some of the most helpful threads/posts. Your job will be to proof read the translations for accuracy.

I'm also thinking about making an ecommerce site in Spanish also, but that's in the thought phase right now.

Post here with any comments, even if you can't translate. Please feel free to offer any comments or criticisms.

Someone beat me to it.

cultivodetabaco.com

They have a link to our forum on their home page.

Bob, what would be a proper title for a general type forum for our Spanish speaking friends? I'll start a forum and include this link. Everyone will be welcome to post there.
Can we start a Spanish speaking forum and return the favor of cultivodetabaco.com and add a link to their forum from ours? I've been to their site with Google Translate and their is some interesting information there, including several links to tobacco books and documents written in English. I haven't tried the Chrome browser, but it's supposed to do an automatic translation. Will this be the same translation as given by Google Translate or a better one?

Thank you your offer to help with the Spanish language forum.

At this time, it might be easiest to direct potential members to the existing Spanish forum. Perhaps we can use this forum here for answers not yet available on the Spanish forum.
The way this forum would work for now would be for a Spanish member would post a question. Tronez would then translate and post the question in the general or designated forum.

I don't want this to become a burden for anyone, but I'd also like our resources made available to everyone who might need them.

Please comment as to the best way to develop this forum.

I'll create the Spanish forum and move this thread at some point.

I had never noticed this thread/topic before, but also, apparently it still has not been started, so any way, I am will to help as much as I can, I like the idea, and it would be neat if some other people here in Mexico show up,
Your job will be to proof read the translations for accuracy.
. "google translate does pretty good, if the english spelling and grammar is perfect, however sometimes google comes up with some pretty weird,and often humorous translations too, all though Spanish is my second language, ( I grew up speaking english), in the 15 years I have been living here, I almost never speak any english, my wife does not speak any english, nor the kids, so any way, I will help out as much as I can, sometimes I am kind of "pressed" for time, but I don't think it will be real time consuming, initially a little, but once the first translations have been proof read, after that additions,etc, will be easier as they come in.
Do you have the translations ready to proof read ? just let me know, when you do.

The Internet Browser Google Chrome does an automatic foreign language translation. It works pretty good. I've been using it to check out the Spanish and Portuguese forums. I've posted a couple of times on the Portuguese forum, I use Google Translate to translate my posts into Portuguese, then copy and paste the translation into the message box. It's not as slow as it sounds.

As Knuckhead said, you can use Google Chrome or Google translate to do it. Not bad, not good but it´s the only thing we have to translate our posts meanwhile.
Interesenting that mexican offer, there are other members from "South America" in cultivodetabaco

Anyway, here I am to help you

Buenos Noche, good night, and I am tired, but here is a example of what this thread looks like using google translate: (English to Spanish)
