Is there a general estimate for a date for the new website to become available? I'm really starting to miss Immersion and using Google Docs just feels too tedious and no one has joined me.
Thank you for your hard work on making a new replacement.
I am sorry it is taking a while.
I have been in discussions with the owners of the new website over the last couple of weeks. Just this morning I received an email confirming that they are in agreement with the proposal I have put to them. I now need to explain to all members of this community exactly what this proposal involves and give them an opportunity to sign up to the scheme. This may take a few days still to come up with a set of terms and conditions.
There is no money involved, but, as the saying goes: there is no such thing as a free lunch. So users of the new facility may be asked to help carry out an occasional piece of commercial translation work, in return for continued use of the free training area.
That's great to hear! I'm glad that maybe in only a few days I will be able to continue with one of my favourite ways of learning French. It also seems like it would be fun to do commercial translations because I would love knowing that I am helping different people (outside of the translation community) to understand texts.
