A few months ago, we announced André Holthe as our associate editor, working to ensure maximal quality of the translations on this site. André has been an incredible font of energy, working double time to onboard our new translators and ensure a generally smooth operation of the site.
With that said, I’m excited to welcome André as the new editor of Bird’s Nest. His passion and commitment to the site combined with his amazing knack for languages has ensured continued quality. Under his leadership, we’ve seen the site grow to over 13,000 followers, with 4 primary translators and additional support from our community.
André has some big shoes to fill in for Jennifer Ng, who co-founded the site with me and has served as its primary editor for the past few years. While we’re sad to see Jen move on to other endeavors, we’re incredibly grateful for her contributions and leadership.
It’s been an exciting few months here at Bird’s Nest, as we’ve brought in a growing team of translators and have transitioned from a purely Tumblr-based interface to a new back-end web page that increases our site efficiency. While I’ll be stepping back on my own commitments to the site, I’ll continue to offer translations and make improvements to the site
And, as always, please get in touch if you’d like to join our team of translators, or if you have programming, design or journalistic skills you’d like to share. Bird’s Nest is a group effort, and we wouldn’t exist without our amazing community around the world.
