Hi translators,

I've already received really good feedback from the Italian and
Slovenian teams [1], which will be really helpful in identifying areas
for improvement for new contributors.

I would still like to have as many participation as possible from all
teams, to make sure that the views represent a spectrum as wide as
possible of our global translations community.

So I would like to ask you that if you've got new members in your team
(or if you are new yourself!), please forward this e-mail to them to
participate in this short survey.

As a reminder, the questions were:

      * How did you learn about this part of the community?
      * What attracted you to this type of participation?
      * Where did you look first for information on getting involved?
      * Did you feel the places you looked for information were useful?
        If not, how could we improve?
      * When learning skills and content for participating, were the
        resources you used useful? If not, how could we improve?
      * What recommendations would you make for improving your
        experience in our community?

It should not take more than a few minutes to complete, and you'll be
really helping the global Ubuntu translations community in improving its
onboarding experience. The more detailed the answers, the easier it will
be to identify areas of improvement.

You can then send the answers to david(dot)planella(at)ubuntu(dot)com,
I'll then process the feedback and publish them on [1].

Thanks a lot!

Regards,
David.
