We are glad to launch a Dutch version of Horus Condition Report! Write your condition and treatment reports in Dutch or use the automatic translation tool to communicate with your Flemish and Dutch partners!
Translating Horus condition report is always a challenge. It requires good knowledge of the terminology used in museums and conservation labs. That’s why our translations are always made by a conservation specialist. It is also a team effort and many specialists are contributing to a new version.
For our Dutch version, we have tried to choose terms accepted in the Netherlands and in the Flemish part of Belgium. If you have any comments, please share them with us! We believe in community feedbacks to improve Horus condition report.
Would you like a version of Horus CR in your own language? Tell us! We love working on new versions and meeting colleagues passionate about conservation and words.
In December 2018, the National Museum of Sweden organized a wonderful 2 days-conference on Documentation in the Conservation field in its beautiful Museum in Stockholm. Anaïs Gailhbaud, the founder of Horus condition report, had the chance to follow the conference. She was also invited to present the how and the why of the application and train many enthusiast professionals during a workshop.
These 2 days were very inspiriting, and after 10 months of work, we are very pleased to announce a new version of the app in Swedish! On this occasion, we offer one month trial of the Pro version to our Swedish colleagues.
