Is correcting the mistakes done directly on the review?

Grammar Squad members don't have that access I think--unless they're also updaters (or updater trainees). They have a forum when they speak Elizabethan English, and we post the submitted reviews and they answer with the corrected version, and then we'd use that.

Think I'll pass then. I was just planning to correct the wrong-written words and add some missing articles like "the" or something, since I can see the mistakes when I'm translating the reviews in question.

I am very interested in doing this again. I have no degree in English, but I am a native speaker, and I was one of the founding members of Grammar Squad v1.0.

I'll add you as soon as possible! Welcome back.

Edit: done, be sure to check Grammar and General Staff forums.

Then you can translate reviews to Spanish if we can get the translation process working again. Here, you check English, so it's English to English, and not Spanish to English.

I think we should establish an sop. We should have a special forum that the reviews go to first. The grammar squad can have admin access to that forum. When completely reviewed, we should forward those to a senior admin for inclusion in the site. We should also come up with an efficient way to review and correct existing reviews. Still working on ideas for that one.
