Language barrier[edit]

If I read the proposal correctly, this is meant as a global project, and it might then be a good idea to consider in the budget language translation and interpretation. In Brazil, where I am from and where we work with around 50 GLAMs, to share a survey in English only would lead to a very low response rate as most potential respondents do not speak English. Likewise, I think potential interviewees might not feel comfortable being interviewed in English. This might be true in other contexts as well. Joalpe (talk) 13:50, 24 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
