The key thing now is to communicate to the world the scale of this tragedy (particularly the english speaking world). Terremoto Chile is currently a PR disaster in the UK. Nobody knows about it. The idea behind “Terremoto Info” is to have a curated twitter bulletin board which acts both as a directory or yellow pages and also as a record for the information. It also allows those not familiar with twitter to access the breadth of information available #vivatwitter.

Here is how you could help:

1. Could you suggest improvements in the spanish for each of the section headings in terremoto info (  and put corrections here (with relevent paragraph number)

Thurs 4th Thanks to Joe and Eve who used Google translate to translate all the headings – these now need to be checked

Sat 6th Nico Translated Section 1.o (updated 6.3.2010)

2. Could you translate the section fuerza chile 10.0 into English (I can check the english over afterwards if your english needs a little help)

3. Could you write a transcription for this video so that we can add english subtitles.
