Woodgears translations to Spanish

Woodgears Translations in Spanish

I am gradually translating articles by Matthias Wandel(Woodgears). They need a lot of work to be translated, but I think that, especially those of you who don’t speak English, will appreciate it. At first it was about translating the blog articles into Spanish, but as they usually come with at least one video, I am also translating the YouTube videos that appear in the articles so that I can add subtitles to them.

Translating articles and videos is a lot of work and takes up a lot of time, but I will continue to do it as much as possible, as it is something you value very highly. If you want to financially support this translation activity (and this blog) you can do it with a small donation (you choose the amount after clicking on the donate button).

This picture will help you to know where each link takes you.
