The collaboratively Rosetta Stone of Tools
Working in Basurama usually means working in different countries with different tools and waste materials. When we have to prepare those actions/workshops/installations, we have to send a list of the tools we’ll need. Even for Spanish speaking countries, names of tools could differ a lot. A trolley (or is it a dolly?) could be a carretilla if you are in Spain or a diablito if you are in Mexico.
To try to solve this problem, I’ve started a spreadsheet with photos and names of different tools and materials, that we usually use: http://bit.ly/toolstranslate
This spreadsheet could then feed other websites or be copy-pasted (and removed the columns that are not useful) to serve as a template for a tools request.
Everyone can edit it. Thanks for collaborating!
