Fundraising Project, Kovel, Poland Yizkor BookBruce DrakeIn progress
The project goal is to put the translation of the full 539 pages of text online at http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/translations.html. Translation will begin with the table of contents and the four chapters that comprise the section titled, “The City"s Early History, Its Character and Makeup.”
To accomplish that JewishGen will hire a professional translator. The project coordinator will select the order in which to translate the chapters and will work closely with the translator to ensure a grammatically correct and idiomatic translation. Specific tasks the project coordinator will perform include proofreading, editing, and preparing the work for submission to the Yizkor Book Project.
