A quick coworking.org update for you!
In addition to finally undertaking a concerted effort to update the Coworking Visa (big thanks to Sara Magnabosco of Betacowork!), we’re continuing to work on “reaching the next billion” potential coworkers by translating coworking.org to as many languages as we can.
The Spanish language translation of the home page is live, with Italian, Arabic, German, and Dutch all ready to be posted next.
If you’d like to help translate the site into a language we don’t have yet, please make a copy of the Google Doc in this folder and have at it:
If you know of non-English resources like this group for people who want to learn more about coworking and how to get involved, I’d love for you to share those links here. I’ll be adding these to the corresponding pages for a given language.
While we’re at it, I’ll just say that Open Coworking right now has 21 supporters (extra special thanks to Alex Hillman of Indy Hall and Jonathan Markwell of the Skiff!) for a total annual budget of about $3,000.
I think we can do much better. If we can raise just a little more support, we can make more time to do quality work for the benefit of all of us.

Last month at GCUC USA, I had the privilege of meeting Bob Zheng, organizer of GCUC China.
In talking about how we might collaborate, I had a sudden realization: we as a movement could reach so many more people if we made it easier to find coworking resources in more languages.
To that end, I’m looking for people who can help with two things:
Write or translate some copy for a simple introductory page on coworking.org in any language other than English
Help compile links to free and open resources that connect people who are interested in coworking in non-English languages
Can you help with this?
Do you know of equivalents to this Coworking Google Group, the Coworking Blog, Coworking Wiki, and so on, in other languages?
