Welcome to the Guerrilla Translation/Guerrilla Media Collective Wiki
Hello and welcome to our Wiki!
The wiki is primarily designed for people who are already working with the collective but it is also an excellent knowledge base for peers who are interested in joining or for anyone curious about our working methods and governance model, as well as Open Cooperativism in general.
What follows is a quick-start guide to getting acquainted with the way we work and relate to each other.
You don't have to go through all of these materials at once. If you're thinking of joining we, in fact, requiere a 9 month mutual familiarization period, but it's a good idea to go through this article and start checking out these links. After that, we recommend that you bookmark and return to it periodically, as a roadmap. To help you out, we've included a list of all the links we've compiled for this entry right here.
So, read on, and don't be afraid to ask questions and, above all, welcome!
What should I do before asking to join GT?
If you're thinking about joining, we need you to be familiar with our philosophy, procedures and way of working. The best way to start is by reading our Guerrilla Translation Handbook at your own pace and contacting us once you're done. But alas! The Handbook is not finished yet so, for the time being, please take some time to read the following articles:
- Punk Elegance: How Guerrilla Translation reimagined itself for Open Cooperativism summarizes our history and our latest objectives and thinking.
- The Open Coop Governance Model in Guerrilla Translation: an Overview is an introduction to our Governance Model.
- To be or not be a Guerrilla Translator describes what you can expect from working with the collective, and what we will expect of you.
- Joining Guerrilla Translation, a complete guide will take you through the exact procedure for becoming a Guerrilla Translator.
The four links above will give you a general idea about the way we work. "Joining Guerrilla Translation", in particular, describes the concrete steps to to be taken for people joining the collective. If this is what you intend to do, please continue by reading it next.
