Hey Common Voice Community
I hope this message finds you well. For this week’s weekly update, I will be highlighting some updates on localising validation criteria, upcoming events and new CC0 advice in the Community Playbook.
Localising the validation criteria
Thank you for your feedback that some of the recording and validation guidelines do not reflect all languages. The CV site currently doesn’t support language-specific content but we are working towards launching this feature in 2022.
For example, Pontoon only gives 1-1 translation of sentences, which doesn’t give much flexibility for localisation.
In the meantime, we would still like to support people to understand what the guidelines mean in their own context. If you would like to learn more about please visit this post.

New CC0 advice in the Community Playbook
Following a Common Voice Langauge Reps meeting, we received feedback on helping communities build cases for copyright owners to understand what CC0 is. I have included an amazing PDF I found on CC0 website that breaks down key concepts. If anyone would be interested in localising this please let me know via direct message.
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask !
