About the Translations
The translations from our native English to the currently supported foreign languages
are machine translations. More specifically we used Google translate to automate the
translation process. This allowed us to get a translated version published in a much

Now that we have that starting point we can fine tune the translations for more accuracy.
We have had many offers from users in the past to provide us with translation help, we
much appreciate that! If you would like to help us with translation inaccuracies please send
an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
We especially need some guidance on how button captions might be re-translated to provide a much
shorter caption. You will notice on the snappy fax ribbon bar that many buttons have become
small and may not show a caption at all as the ribbon will resize itself to provide a 'best fit'
often at the expense of the caption. One or two words in English might translate into 5 or more

We have developed a translation helper application that we can send to those who would like to help
with translation inaccuracies which will assist you in providing corrections and assist us with
quickly updating current translations, in order to publish them promptly.

the supported languages. We greatly regret this as we have a lot of loyal users in Greece and
