Tom Hutchison o Joomla:

The Translate extension allous fer connection tae aen owersetin service n can autæ fill the owerset fer ye. At the same time aen owerseter can mak adjustments sae that ye'r no creautin heaps o pages wi onaccurate owersetins.

That's ok gif thay'r oan differant continents. That is actually a plus because work is getting done 24 hours a day. What they need is a support group chat for each other. They would all be able to read English if they are translating right? Teach a few simple wiki markup such as links and what to do with categories. Then they help others who in turn help others. We have over 40 in a chat who help each other and have fun at the same time. And they were all scared of the wiki but couldn't believe how easy it was once they started. They are actually waiting on me for more translations to do because I can't keep up with them. I know there is only 1 translating this language or that language. We have that too. One person is doing Swahili while another one is working on Japanese. Also, you mark pages for translation. You control whether to include templates or exclude variables in template calls.
