Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (PRWEB) April 15, 2016
Anticipating the launch of its official portal scheduled for later this year, I LOVE RIO released a summarized version of the website in over sixty different languages, providing a region-targeted presentation of the city and state of Rio de Janeiro, with an emphasis on the local culture.
In correspondence with the site's official tagline, the phrase 'I Love Rio de Janeiro' was translated into dozens of languages, and the translation of the phrase was chosen as the designated domain name for the respective language. For instance, the Spanish version of the summarized website is accessible by typing http://www.yoamoriodejaneiro.com, derived from "Yo Amo Rio de Janeiro," the Spanish equivalent of "I love Rio de Janeiro."
The translations for several Western languages are completed, while the translations for less commonly spoken and some Asian languages are still being corrected and improved.
Aiming to collaborate with contributors from around the world, I LOVE RIO has established a contact email for writers and editors interested in participating in the betterment of the work being published: global(at)iloverio(dot)com.
This collective initiative emerged from the special efforts of the I LOVE RIO team in divulging first-hand content to regions that are not normally familiar with Rio de Janeiro-based publications, other than releases relating to major news and events.
These brief international versions provide an overview of the city and the state, while also offering an understanding of the local culture and traditions, supplemented by a selection of exclusive photographs.
As the city of Rio de Janeiro gears up for the 2016 Olympics, the intention of the sites is to offer a simple and useful frame of reference, providing positive and balanced information to a broad global audience.
About I LOVE RIO
Years in the making, the upcoming I LOVE RIO portal is an international project combining the studies and efforts of a wide range of researchers, designed to present the City and the State of Rio de Janeiro from a unique historical, touristic, and cultural perspective in an innovative manner.
