It's slowly occurred to me that it might be beneficial for us to have a list of people versed in different languages, so if someone wants to communicate with a maker or get more information about something, they can easily find someone to translate for them. So toss your name (associated language and fluency) into the hat if you're willing to field translation requests from other members! I'm hoping to eventually sticky this when we get a large enough spread of languages.

*Note: this is not an official TON service, nor are the translated products affiliated with TON in any way. If you choose to contact one of these listed members, you understand that their efforts are for personal guidance only. They are not to be used as a professional consult. These services are volunteered out of members' spare time, and thus members are not obligated to respond to all requests. By contacting these members, you are acknowledging the risks of your own actions and will not hold the staff of TON, TON, and the member in question responsible for any damage or loss unless the member has not performed in a reasonable manner.

Sorry for that bit of legalese, I didn't want someone to get sued because they translated a purchase order or something like that. Members are listed in order of how active shadow has perceived them to be. **You must have 300 posts minimum in order to be listed.

You never know, maybe TON is what inspires some people in Latin America to make ocarinas.

Alright, people who are learning a language need not apply. :)

However my only true native language is English. (Though native speakers have mistaken me as a speaker of both Russian and French.)

I might be of help in a very unlikely situation in which one would need translating something ocarina-related from Croatian to English. But, nevertheless, I would be happy to help. :)
