New Member BeWelcome
Every new member receives a personal message from one of our older members. They help new members become familiar with the website and its features and they function as a direct contact between the new member and BeWelcome, so that everyone can feel at home.
The Translation Team wants to make accessing the website easier for visitors and potential members worldwide, regardless of their English skills. Our goal is to translate the complete site to as many languages as possible, starting with the most spoken languages by our members.
Our members have the best ideas for BeWelcome. That's why anyone can suggest their ideas to the public. A vote will decide if the idea is presented to the various teams to be implemented. You can help support this process by volunteering for the Suggestion Team.
