scribes translation list
scribes who wish, may get accurate translations of scrolls that they wish
Example: if someone were a late 14th c French persona and were being
laureled the scroll is often done to their persona as well as to the
subject in which they are being recognized. With this website, the scribe
who is to work on the scroll can ask for a late 14th c French translation
of the text and put that on the scroll rather than modern English, while
also using the correct hand (style of letters) for the time frame. (very
useful for Hindi, Japanese, Hebrew, Arabic, etc...)
It is a privacy conscious site, meaning that the mail will go through the
site and neither the translator or scribe will know who the other
is.....unless they don't care and choose to have their address shown.
The languages that I am aware of it currently having translators for are:
German, Japanese, Hindi, Swedish and (I think) French and Latin.
This looks to be a wonderful tool for scribes throughout the known world
and it is hoped that more translators and scribes sign on and use it. It
can also be seen as a tool by which the SCA can become more authentically
inclined for those who wish to do so and elevate the Society in the minds
of the academics who do not always look favorably upon us.
