CONSUL is a Citizen Participation and Open Government Application, originally developed for the Madrid City government eParticipation website. It allows citizens to develop and put forward new investment project that may benefit their City or district, to be funded by the municipal budget. The projects are then peer reviewed and, if deemed feasible, may reach a final balloting stage in which the best projects are selected by public vote and subsequently realized.
I believe this would be a great resource for any local government and am therefore happy to contribute to its translation in my native language and hopeful that this or something similar might come to be used in my City as well.

What I have so far translated was a mix of section headers and descriptors, as well as some general info on how the platform operates and how to correctly contribute a project.

Here is the Google text file with the sentences I translated, with all code and duplications removed (which, incidentally, is the reason why some sentences might not make much sense). It’s the file I used for my word count.
