subject Request to translate the content of your website
I am the webmaster of a Hong Kong ex-christians' website, the ExChristians Alliance (http://exchristian.hk) [in Chinese]. We help ex-christians after they left the religion to go ahead with their future happy life.
Recently, Hong Kong has a issue about the intelligent design theory which tried to be included in the normal biology syllabus (see: http://sites.google.com/site/hkscienceeducation/). We concerned that the education of Hong Kong would be "spoiled".
I found that the content of the website http://evolution.berkeley.edu/evosite is neat and clear which is very helpful for general students as well as ex-christians in Hong Kong, our main website visitors, especially the subsection of misconceptions which can be a important source of information for ex-christians who used to adapt religious teachings. Therefore I sincerely request that we can translate and post the subsection of misconceptions (http://evolution.berkeley.edu/evosite/misconceps/index.shtml) into Chinese in our website.
We will quote the original link of information as well as for non-profit purpose. Please reply us for your permission for our reproduction or request for more information from us.
Thank you for contacting us and we are pleased that you find the Understanding Evolution (UE) website so useful.
We have had numerous requests for translations of the UE resources and are happy to oblige. However, it is necessary for us to partner with a recognized university or university department to do so. Is it possible that you could find a university partner that we could work with on this request?
