Fundraising Project, Kolki, Ukraine Yizkor BookBrian ReiserIn progress
The project goal is to put the translation of the full 399 pages of text online at http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/translations.html. Translation will begin with the table of contents and figure captions, and then will proceed with the text of the book.
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.
