Other Activities at a Glance
As the end of November came, students from Ternopil University said their goodbye to SBT Localization. However, some of them decided to contribute further.
We would like to express warm thanks to all diligent students, especially to Yuliia Paskar, Yurii Sozanskyi, Andrii Podoliak, Marta Oleskiv, Iryna Vdovych, Iryna Pryliuk, Yuliia Shchyrba, Mariia Khyl, and Viktoriia Bilovus. All the best to you!
We have prepared a short questionnaire about the work of the SBT Localization team and Ukrainian localization itself. If you still have not filled it out, feel free to check it. The more answers we have, the better it is. The results will be announced after the 20th of December.
Comics Translation: Presentation
In November, Anastasiia Rantiuk made a presentation, where shared hands-in experience and thoughts of comics translation. As a matter of fact, it was prepared for the Anastasiia’s groupmates yet we had an idea that it is rather interesting for our channel too (SBT Education). We do recommend checking it out! Do not forget to subscribe to the channel. It is not that hard for you yet very pleasant for us!
