Call for translators! [Jun. 29th, 2009|12:29 pm]

Do you read and write well, or even fluently, in a language besides English? T-Vox needs your help!

As ever, T-Vox is striving to be as internationally accessible as possible. The wiki admins are based in the UK, and the overwhelming majority of contributors are English speakers living in predominantly English-speaking countries. This, obviously, leaves out a huge percentage of the world population. While we have managed to translate a small handful of pages into French or German or Italian or Spanish, the majority of pages remain untranslated, and obviously there are many other languages that haven't been introduced at all.

If you can help at all, whether by translating one very short page or a huge amount of content, or by checking the existing translated pages for translation errors, the community will benefit hugely, and those of us who would love to translate but aren't able to will be forever grateful!

See T-Vox: Languages for instructions on how to create a new, translated version of any T-Vox page. You will need to create an account on T-Vox to be able to create and edit pages; it's free and painless, and your e-mail address is never shared with anyone.

Pages that particularly need translating at the moment: Trans 101; Transsexuality; Main Page; A guide to transition (and the pages linked from there); Legal issues

Please cross-post this wherever you feel it's appropriate!

The American Civil Liberties Union has a "know your rights" page for trans* people.

notice. [May. 10th, 2009|12:06 pm]

[Tags|] appears to be down - some guys over at ftm@LJ have been saying that it's been down for anywhere from few days to a few months now, and no one seems to know when/if it's coming back up.

In the meantime, there is a new website which is being actively maintained, iTranstion, which allows pictures from both FtM and MtF trans* people, and includes galleries for not only results of surgery, but also of hormonal transition and trans* people who are no-op/no-ho. It is currently still in "private beta" and if you create an account you must post photos within 24 hours, but once it goes any one will be able to join regardless of whether they intend to post or not.

"We Are Everywhere" Project [Apr. 5th, 2009|10:47 pm]


A few people have posted links to the "We Are Everywhere" mapping project over at ftm@LJ, and I thought I'd crosspost it.

Quoted from the website:
"When I started transition, in my small community of 1200, I had very limited exposure to transmen. While I remembered seeing transwomen on talk shows as a teenager, I couldn’t recall seeing transmen in popular media (aside from tragic stories like Boys Don’t Cry), and concluded that we must be a rare breed indeed. In the time since then, I’ve realized that I couldn’t have been more wrong in that assumption.

"The more I delve into the FTM community, the more I am able to judge the large scope of it. Just like Deadheads, transmen are everywhere!"

All you have to do is is enter a name/alias - apart from that you can include as much or as little information as you like (your postal code, your city, or even just your region.) The point is to put a box on the map that represents you, to demonstrate that trans men are not some tiny little group, nor confined to one particular region or area.
