    #MEAction are looking for volunteers to translate this petition:

    http://my.meaction.net/petitions/pace-trial-needs-review-now

    into languages other than English so that the site can carry the petition in many languages.

    The petition is on fire! Over 2,500 in half a day already. It's gone viral!

    The PACE trial drives the spread of CBT and GET for PWME all over the world. This petition exposes its misleading claims of recovery and calls for the journals to retract those claims.

    This is HUGE!

    Help it get everywhere!

    If you're interested in helping, email info@meaction.net.

    They've already got someone for French, German and Spanish.

    Tagging some people I know might be able to either do the translation or could ask their compatriots! No need to respond here, just email info@meaction.net.

    @mango @deleder2k @Valentijn @Tuha @WoolPippi ...

    Trying to think if we have any Greek people here, or Italians, Poles, Portuguese, Swiss...

    It would be great to get this into Norwegian asap - the Norwegian PWME have a tremendous base.

    thank you so much for highlighting this, for letting us know, @Sasha!

    and yay! it took me less than 5 minutes to find someone (a PWME who is also a professional translator) who is interested in helping out with the swedish version..! :)

    Great stuff, Tuha! But I worded my request badly and I've now edited it. What I should have said was:

    into languages other than English so that the site can carry the petition in many languages.

    Maybe I can try to translate it. Just I am not sure if there are much more slovaks/ czechs who visit ME action network and are not in our ME facebook group. I will contact ME action network about this.

    I suppose the question would be whether it would be useful for Slovaks/Czechs who don't have ME but would be sent there by others. We want everyone seeing the petition, not just PWME.

    But you're the best judge!
