    How do I know it worked? Do I actually have to cut and paste from the Original to the Translation or is it really as simple as picking another language and submitting it? I tried translating and English article into Spanish and Japanese but in the 'Translation' side it still appears, even after picking a different language, in English.

    I think I misunderstood? There is no button that does a magic translation, we have to manually enter our translated text into the Translation side of the tool?

    @ipdegirl @fash_on - you will need to speak the language you would like to translate the article into, it is not automatic unfortunately. No magic. @cyan-shine - if an article has been translated already into a language that language will be taken out of the drop down so it cannot be translated twice. @spoeker if the submission is posted you will get 15 piggies

    well i put my full heart and soul trusting lomography as i translated many many MANY locations... but the piggies are supposed to be awarded when the articles get published... but we don't know how long will it take until they get published nor how we will know... so for now it's all a big fuzz... until the good lomo web people get back from their lovely weekend and give us some light! =)
