World Carfree Network
World Carfree Network (WCN, [translation of the name in your language]) is the hub of the global carfree movement. The network aims to bring together organisations and individuals dedicated to promoting alternatives to car dependence and automobile-based planning at the international level and working to reduce the human impact on the natural environment while improving the quality of life for all. Such alternatives are proposed, analysed and realised by individuals and organisations from around the world.
World Carfree Network supports carfree ways of life and demands a stop to the automobile-oriented planning of our cities and communities. Automobilism is a threat to all of us: the noise, exhaust gases, waste of resources, loss of public space and deathly dangers in street traffic. We want a better, safer, more peaceful and environmentally-friendly future for us all - the young and the elderly, the healthy and the sick, the poor and the rich people.
Worldcarfree.net is a clearinghouse of information from around the world and offers resources for architects, planners, teachers/professors, students, decision-makers and engaged citizens - like movies, books and scientific studies. Not to forget stickers, t shirts and other fun stuff.

NOTES TO TRANSLATORS:
Do not translate the green left column (this is automatically generated by the website system).
If you want, download this english-for-translations.rtf, there is all of this first page in it what needs to be translated.
If you want to translate further pages, download this english-ALL-PAGES-for-translation.rtf. It contains all those 10 pages we recommend to translate, listed in order of priorities.
The links to WCN web pages will be only listed (here in: "Websites in [your language]") if they exist as translation (if you or someone else translated them).
Translate "World Carfree Network" only one time in the text ( > In the first paragraph: "World Carfree Network (WCN, [translation of the name in your language]) is the hub ..."). Later in the text, keep it in English, because it is a name.
About the last paragraph ("Persons who speak ..."):
This paragraph aims to encourage foreign people to go in direct contact with people from the network who speak your language. We will find out, if there are people in WCN who speak your language (and if yes, in which committee or group they are).
The system of links to the original pages in English and links to those pages you translated is:
- If there IS a page in your language, you translate the name of this page into your language and we link it in the text.
- If the page exists only in English, then translate the name of it into your language, and after that we add the English name in brackets and link it.
- Generally, all links have a small pop-up that titles the link with an info about the language of the link.
- If that sounds too complicated, don`t care about, we will deal with it when we see your translation.
