Czech translation of The Scientific Guide to Global Warming Skepticism
Posted on 10 January 2011 by John Cook
The Scientific Guide to Global Warming Skepticism has been translated into Czech. Many thanks to Jiří Došek and Jan Hollan (CzechGlobe) who collaborated on the translation. There were a few stumbling blocks with some Czech characters (I had to change the typeface used throughout the Guide) but we got there in the end. Also, Jan pointed me towards a high-rez version of the spaghetti hockey stick graph on Page 6 which I also incorporated in the original English version (now if I could just lay my hands on a vector version of Barnett et al's 2005 ocean heat graph, I'd be very happy).
Note to other translators:
If you'd like to translate the Guide into another language, there are two documents to help you: a two-column Word document with all the English text in one column and a blank column to place the translated text, plus a PDF Overview of the Guide to clearly mark each section for translators (many thanks to Baerbel Winkler who went to great trouble to put these together).
Please download the Word document and email me back the document with translated text. I'll then insert the translated text into the existing design. But best first to contact me to ensure noone else is already working on your language (versions in Dutch, French, German, Norwegian, Portuguese, Slovak and Spanish are currently in the works).
