TommyTalker needs native language speakers
that are fluent in English to review and correct phrases that are incomplete or inaccurate. Translations have been done in 26 languages, but Google Translate only does so much, and there are about 1,000 phrases that need review/edits in each language.
HTML5/CSS3 Designer(s) are needed to improve site look and functionality. RoR programmers interested in the project should contact me. Pair programming via Google Hangouts, tmux and using vim editor work best for me, as those are the tools I've found to be most effective.

Credit for all translation and programming participation will be displayed prominently on this page, and I can provide bona fide references for participants needing open source programming or translation references on their resumes.
