[lg policy] Ebola messages in several African languages (text); A look at an atrocity in Guinea

Sat Sep 20 00:58:36 UTC 2014

Three recent blog posts may be of interest to some on this list:

1) Some ebola message translations from Freetown (The US 
Embassy/Freetown has translations of an ebola message in 5 Sierra 
Leonean languages. This post reproduces them for dissemination, review, 
and reuse.) 16 September 2014

2) On ebola, in Yoruba (There are a number of videos in Yoruba on 
aspects of ebola and its prevention. But this post highlights some text 
material on ebola in the Yoruba language.) 18 September 2014

3) Fear, loathing, and murder in Womey, Guinea (The recent murder of 8 
members of an ebola outreach team in Guinea is more than just fear and 
ignorance. The state of relations between authorities and the population 
is involved, including need for effective public education. Language is 
therefore also important.) 19 September 2014
