Google Translate Website Updated #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

As genealogists researching documents. Letters and more in different languages,
services to aid translation are critically important. Google translate is such a
tool in our quiver. Recently Google translate underwent an upgrade. One of
improvements is the ease to find the feature to upload documents for translation
in .doc, docx, odf, pdf, ppt,.ps, rtf, text, xls or xlsx. Initially, Google
translated only English and Arabic, today it has
grown to translate 103 languages. See: https://translate.google.com/

Google has added labels to each saved translation, so if you speak multiple
languages, you can sort and group your translations with a single click.

It appears to be a more responsive website so it can adjust dynamically for
screen size across all devices: mobile, tablet, or desktop. You can save
and organize translations you regularly utilize or search for.

Google Translate can also convert an entire website into a selected
language. To do this, enter the website address in the box on the left and
select your preferred language in the right box and click on the link that
appears. Note: if you use Chrome as your browser that website, also part of
the Google family, can translate an entire website or documents in a website.

I have no affiliation with Google and am posting this solely for the
information of the reader.

Brad Thayer asked on GerSIG where the burial register for the Jewish

The short answer is that it is in the Central Archives for the History
of the Jewish People in Jerusalem.

Newly translated book on the Holocaust in Hungary #hungary

cia@...
 

I wanted to inform the h-sig group regarding a newly translated (into English) book
â??How It Happenedâ??. Written in 1945 by Erno Munkacsi it details the anguished
decisions made by Jewish leaders during the days leading up to and during the
Holocaust in Hungary. Written (in Hungarian) well before the great scholar of the
Hungarian Holocaust, the recently deceased Randolph Braham published his monumental
works, this richly annotated English translation is published by McGill-Queen's
University Press.


Happy Chanukah to all,

This week's Yizkor book excerpt on the JewishGen Facebook page #general

Bruce Drake <BDrake@...>
 

"An explosion in the forest" >from the Yizkor book of Rafalovka in northern Ukraine,
is one of many accounts that can be found about Jews linking up with groups of
partisans to fight the Germans. After the Rafalovka ghetto was liquidated, four
young Jews found a small partisan group in the forest and the Russian captain in
charge asked them to perform "a special task, which was to blow up a train on the
railroad between Rafalovka and Sarni. The young men had almost no military training
and their first effort met with failure when the mine they planted on the tracks
did not explode as the train passed. But the next time they succeeded, earning the
partisan commander's praise: "You are mighty warriors."
