Cait (tigercait) | 5005 comments This is the initial list of volunteers who were willing to help with Goodreads book records in languages other than English.

Update: I have not been updating this list past comment 471 from March 2011 (see discussion); you can read the comments from additional volunteers starting at page 10 of the volunteer thread.

If you are willing to help out, please comment at the volunteer thread (NOT in this thread) with what languages other than English which you know well enough for book cataloging and whether your proficiency is "fluent" or "basic". While the list in this thread is no longer maintained, the volunteer thread is still active and contains more volunteers than are listed here.
