Lingva Translate: un traductor que et permet no regalar dades a Google Translate

(Auto) Inclusió Tic, Hackers, Sobirania tecnològica, Cura de dades

Dins de les cures feministes de la nostra vida digital és important no donar dades a GAFAM i una de les formes on els hi donem és amb Google Translate. Aquí una iniciativa per poder fer-lo servir...

@gaba I'm very happy with Calibre on my little notebook with a detachable screen, which works well as a e-book reader, but I had never seen Calibre-web either, until my friend showed it to me.

@gaba A friend installed Calibre-Web for the Mediateca in Calafou, which was a great improvement for managing the huge library.

@ljwrites Excellent timing for that question, thank you! I was just thinking about writing a blog post about the tenth anniversary of his death in a few weeks.
I am always grateful that both of our sons share the same love of books that Peter and I shared. And our sons certainly read (and also write and translate) high-quality books too, so even though I miss sharing books with Peter, I can still enjoy sharing books and discussions about books with our sons.
Every time I visit my sons I am touched to see the books again that each of them wanted to keep, because they associate those books with their father. So the story continues ....

@ljwrites Yes! It was certainly because of Doris Lessing that it worked for almost 25 years.
After he died, whenever I was missing him I cleaned the bookshelves, because all the years of our life together were most clearly documented by our bookshelves.
Now I am sincerely grateful to my younger son and his partner for taking over the flat with ALL the books.

@ljwrites Books. Specifically the book "The Marriages Between the Zones Three, Four and Five" by Doris Lessing.
I was working as a waitress pre-Internet, when people read books during their lunch break, so I always asked people what they were reading.

@Stoori My son pointed that out to me when he was three.
I was exasperated and sternly told him to please behave. A few minutes later he said, "Look, Mama, I'm being have now."
I am aware enough of language that I felt very foolish for saying something so meaningless to my child.

Does anyone know if there is any solid data that tracks the number of people who emigrate from the US every year?

Been looking but can't seem to find anything but lagging estimates

@servus It sounds wonderful. I wish I could be there.
