Topic: wiki or google docs for translations etc.

...might be nice to setup a wiki or google docs at some point for working on translations, so that the language can be polished...

I would really like to see a google docs or Wiki set up so documents could be viewed and edited by others. I like these programs because they save all the versions of the document so there is no danger of loosing information. Wiki is nice because you can make notes without editing the text as it appears.

I wanted to open some documents on my google docs account to public editing, but I don't think that's possible. You can publish it, or you can add other users to a list of people allowed to edit. But public editing seems impossible on a private account.

One of my documents I want to open for public editing is a list of Wuyi Yancha Cultivars that I am working on compiling. I thought it would be useful to have a list people could check with the Chinese, the pinyin and some popular English renderings (sometimes there are lots). Also many cultivars have alternative names in Chinese as well. With a setup like this people could make notes on where they found the tea, different names, etc.

I would also like translations to be posted. Other people commenting on parts of the translation unclear to them would be a great help even if they didn't feel confident to edit themselves.

Re: wiki or google docs for translations etc.

I am going to go out on a limb and assume you havent mentioned Wikicha.com simply because you hadn't heard of it.
Check it out.

Yes, have heard of it.

Sorry - just to clarify, I meant more somewhere just for scratch space for working on translations of documents / articles, not a general tea wiki; I know that's pretty well covered already.

Re: wiki or google docs for translations etc.

The Wiki/Google Docs we were talking about was using this type of online document editing software to create a space for forum members (or anyone else who was interested) to post translations and edit each other's documents/make suggestions.

What I imagined doing with the List of Yanchas is a bit different from wikicha. They have about 15 cultivars. I was thinking about making a reference list of more than 70 modern cultivars and over 200 historical ones for my own research purposes and so anyone else could use them and edit them as well. I thought it would be a little bit excessive for wikicha, maybe not.

Re: wiki or google docs for translations etc.

I was rereading some of your nice translation work on some of the threads, and took some liberty in setting up a Wikicha translation scratchpad.
I copied your section on Zhuni and Hongni as example, I hope you don't mind. If you decide to use Google Docs it won't hurt my feelings, but it sounds like no consensus was reached and there is still a need for a service under friendly management. I'd be happy to make any changes needed to accommodate your translation efforts.

Re: wiki or google docs for translations etc.

Wikicha seems to be no more. Was this collection of knowledge transferred somewhere that is currently accessible?
