The Poe project was the last translation project I attempted volunteering
for. I had email problems with Lawrence back then (think I was a white
Last I heard I supposedly was to be teamed up with HoD Qanqor way back
when. I first found out when I got an email from Lawrence asking why I hadn't
contacted Qanqor. I didn't even know I had been honored to be teamed with
him and wrote back several times saying that and asking for the great
captain's email address to contact him -- didn't get any replies and took that
as a sign I wasn't meant to join translation projects.
I realize it's mostly my fault since when private communication broke down
I should have shouted in this forum back then. Although, I'll also admit
it's a bit of an emotional raw point for me too, irrational human that I am.
After that I tried starting some translation projects on my own but
without interactions with others lost the motivation. ::::shrug::::

I was editor/coordinator for the Poe Project, but due to various reasons
(limited amount of interest/submissions, real life time commitments, etc.)
the project stalled. So unless someone else takes over and drums up a large
amount of on-going enthusiasm for it, I'd consider it unofficially
'postponed indefinitely', similar to the Klingon Bible translation's
Not to say that there is no recent quality Klingon translation work.
Agnieska's translation of the Tao Te Ching was published recently:
and the Worlds of Translation project seems to be slowly progressing. (I
finally finished my first pass of my story translation at the qep'a' this
summer, and hopefully others were similarly inspired.)
