Re: [Pali] Group database
- Dear Yong Peng,
Is it ok to list the Pali-Latin--English translation(s) that were asked the other time? As these translations are not in the 'sutta translation exercises' like you mentioned, I encourage myself to ask before adding the record.

I have always wanted to create a list of all the sutta translation
exercises we have undertaken. Due to a lack of time, this task has
been shelved for quite a while.
After deliberate considerations, I decided that the task may as well
be a group's project. As such, I have created a table in the group
As part of Yahoo!'s policy, the group's database is a member-only
feature. I have set it to the "open-user" option, which allows members
to access the table and add records. To do so, a member will require a
Yahoo! login, which is another Yahoo! policy.
Please use this table to enter the group's Pali-to-English sutta
translations only, not links to external sites, or any other messages
in the archive.
Once completed, the table can be downloaded as a csv document.
I look forward to members voluntarily making entries to the table, and
also making good use of it in the not very distant future. Thank you.

- Dear Jo,
yes, I consider such attempts as an exercise for us, even though they
may not be explicitly titled as exercises. As long as there is Pali
original text, followed by the English translation done by the group,
i.e. not copied from existing translations, it qualifies for the
database. This database table serves as a quick reference to
translations not found "elsewhere".
Please only enter the first mail of the thread, not all the replies to
the original mail. Thank you.
