As one of the chairs of the TTF, I had a Skype conference call with Josh
Jenkins from ICANN and Silvia Vivanco from ICANN At-Large Staff on 30
January 2015 to discuss the next steps in the development and testing of
the new translation engine that would replace the translation on the
LACRALO mailing lists.

Whilst Silvia and myself agreed that the new translation engine is better
than the current LACRALO one, there are some showstopper issues that needs
resolving before the new translation engine is deployed.The aim is for the
new translation engine to be deployed to the LACRALO lists before the F2F
meeting in Argentina once showstopper issues are resolved.

Bug/Observation reports are being collected at

One outcome from the call that Josh Jenkins has already implemented is that
the new transbot-en and new-transbot-es archives are now public:

This will allow for easier comparison of emails and to link to particular
emails when identifying and reporting bugs on the wiki page for all to
read. It would also aid in demoing the translation tool in future
Technology Taskforce and LACRALO calls.

Kind Regards,
