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 offer a good service all over the world, regardless of the English skills of a potential member. That means that our goal is to translate all the text on the site - starting with the most important ones - into as many langauages as possible.
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.
