Tatoeba update (March 7th, 2015)

Bug fixes

  • An error message is now displayed when trying to view a Wall message that doesn't exist.
  • Special characters in the name in the profile are now properly displayed.

Google Summer of Code 2015 

Sadly our application for GSoC has been rejected. It seems Google had to lower significantly the number of participants this year. There were only 137 accepted organizations, compared to 190 last year, or 177 the year before.

The good news is that thanks to our participation last year, Tatoeba got a bit of visibility amongst young developers and has attracted a few students who expressed interest to stay involved in the project in the long term.

We will of course apply again the next year, and the next ones. If you have heard of any other interesting program Tatoeba could apply to, please let us know.

Meanwhile we will consider if we can use the money from donations to organize our own program. So stay tuned :)
