Hey, we're currently looking for someone who is fluent or native in both English AND Spanish or Portuguese to help us pilot a Sonic Retro project over the next month or so. We'll need you to do a few hours a week of translating written pieces as an experiment, so strong language skills are a must. We would prefer someone who speaks either Brazilian Portuguese or Latin/South American Spanish, but are willing to work with European speakers of those two languages.

If you are interested, please contact me directly over PM with times you are usually on Sonic Retro.

Hey guys, thanks for all the interest I've received about this, but I have to sit on my hands for a little bit while I speak with Facebook.

I guess I'm smarter than Mark Zuckerberg because I'm the first person apparently to want to try what I want to try. Seems weird.

Retro will become a new social network, didn't you know? Oh boy it will have those Facebook stuff like "Share" and "Like", and will have the timeline, you will add people that you've met for like, 5 minutes on the real life... etc.

I request Scarred Sun to change her name to

OK, I've sent out PMs to Spanish-English speakers, as we chose to move forward using Spanish. If you are a member in good standing and still interested, please let me know.

Just wondering, why the interest in Latin Spanish over Castilian Spanish?

It's a geographical consideration—when tracking Retro activity, the amount of Latin Spanish speakers dwarfs Castilian ones. Likewise for Brazilian Portuguese.

I could swear I saw the Sonic 4 post at the front page today in Spanish. Then I refreshed and it appeared in English. How do I view the Spanish version then?

EDIT: I tried in chrome and it redirected me to the /es version. That's pretty cool. I dunno why in Firefox it sends me to the english version after refreshing though.
