I saw yet again a toot calling for solidarity for migrants, and I thought what a socially anxious translator like me could do in practice.

And I can always help with language.

So what if anyone willing to do the same showed their willingness, among with details what they're ready to do and in what languages, with the hashtag .

Feel free to boost as much as you like, and of course share your own language skills.

If you need help with or in , I can answer questions about language and provide short translations related to your life as a migrant for free.

You can ask in any A/B/C level language mentioned in my profile, although I may answer in English.

Note: I'm not licensed to do official translations.

Contact via DM or on public timeline.

There are many reasons to post a transcript with a video. First, accessibility. Also, skimmability (a word?)—good for anyone who wants to know if it’s going to be worth their time to invest an hour or more in watching an extended recording. Real-time captions don’t help much with that. #a11y

Reminder that Tusky still has a TOOT! button. We should make it even more whimsical so that it animates like during tooting.
