Translator Gator 2: A Language Game for Disaster Management
Calling all word geeks across Southeast Asia and Sri Lanka. Pulse Lab Jakarta is launching a language game for natural disaster management called Translator Gator. The more you play, the bigger your chances to win the prizes.
Compete with games from across the region to win return trips to Thailand and Jakarta, gift cards and many other prizes.
You can play at http://translatorgator.org where you will need to register and choose your strongest language. After that you are randomly assigned translations, synonyms, categorization and evaluation tasks for natural disaster-related words. You will earn points for every task you will have finished. You need to collect as many points as you can by 31 July 2017.
The top two players from across 11 countries will get to visit Pulse Lab teams in Bangkok and Jakarta.
Translator Gator aims to build a repository of disaster-related keywords in local languages across the region which can be used for computational social research to inform disaster-response. The taxonomy or keywords will be shared with academia to this end.
By playing this game, you will also contribute to the achievement of Sustainable Development Goal 13 on climate action.
