* Έκκληση για εθελοντές * Το Ελληνικό Ηλεκτρονικό Κέντρο και οι εθελοντές μας που εργαζόμαστε για τις γερμανικές επανορθώσεις έχουμε ένα έγγραφο 150 σελίδων από το 1946 που θέλουμε να το αναρτήσουμε στην ιστοσελιδα. Η ποιότητα δεν είναι καλη, και θα θέλαμε να το πληκτρολογήσουμε ξανά ολόκληρο το έγγραφο. Αν θα θέλατε να εργαστείτε εθελοντικά και να αναλάβετε μια-δυο σελίδες για την πλητρολόγηση, παρακαλώ γράψτε μου: thanos@greece.org Εδώ είναι ένα δείγμα από τα γεγονότα σε αυτόν το έγγραφο. Πληκτρολόγηση πρέπει να γίνει με πολυτονική γραμματοσειρά και keyboard. Μετατροπή στα Αγγλικα δεν είναι υπχρεωτική αν δεν μπορείτε. *CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS* The Hellenic Electronic Center and our volunteers working on this WWII German Reparations project working in publishing a 150-page document dated 1946. The quality is shown by its age, therefore we would like to re-type the entire document. If you would like to volunteer in taking over a couple of pages to re-type, please let me know at thanos@greece.org Here is a sample of one of the events cataloged in this document, and sample of the work that needs to be done

NOTE: We tried several OCR programs but the polytonic text and the quality of the document produce very bad OCR results.

What is needed:
a) re-typed in Greek polytonic (see instructions below)
b) translation in English
Instructions: The objective of the translation is to be as much accurate as possible in depicting the meaning of each sentence. Preserving the syntax of the original Greek may not be possible, therefore we should use a more pleasant and flowing English text with potentially different syntax and sentence structure as required.
We will have the text lined-up next to each other (Greek | English) trying to keep each paragraph in unison. You can enter blank lines as required so each paragraph starts at the same height.

Instruction for polytonic Greek:
When you use MSWord to type, use Palatino Monotype or Tahoma font
