Steps to take in order to contribute to and test the Hmong translator

Getting set up

  1. After you create your Hotmail ID, you need to email it to me at phong_yang@sbcglobal.net or submit the information through the contact page on this site. I will invite you to become a reviewer. As a reviewer, you will be able to: (a) view previous translations, (b) provide new translations, (c) vote on a translation as being the most correct, and (d) test the translation engine.
  2. Once you receive the invitation in your Hotmail account, you will need to follow the instruction in the email to complete your registration. You will be asked to accept the terms and agreement.
  3. To sign in you will need to go to http://hub.microsofttranslator.com/SignIn?returnURL=%2FHome%2FIndex

Contributing translations to improve translator

  1. Once you have signed in, hover your mouse over “Community” at the top right corner of your screen.
  2. To contribute translations, select “Review Documents” from the dropdown.
  3. You will be taken to a list of files that are ready to be worked on. Double click on any of file names to open documents for that file.
  4. Hover your mouse on the text in the right column of the table. You can now type in a translation for the equivalent text on the left and click submit once you are done.
  5. If other translations already exist from previous reviewers, you can choose which translation you think is the most accurate or provide your own all together.

Testing the translator

  1. Once you signed in, hover your mouse over “Community” at the top right corner of your screen.
