RECRUITMENT: Translation Team

By #JoinTheZenith - ANKAMA - June 27, 2013, 18:02:30

The Zenith is recruiting 3 new players for its Translation Team. This volunteer position serves the players of the English Community by translating summaries created by the Summarizer Team and translating posts and responses created by the French Dev Team on the private Zone 48 threads. The translation team also translates noteworthy posts from the French forums that would benefit the EN community.

Lastly, the Zenith serve as a voice for the Dev team in response to player concerns.

-Attending meetings in Teamspeak to coordinate Zenith activities with the rest of the team and advise summarizers on key points of community feedback to include in their summaries.
