If you’ve been out of touch for the past two years or so or you’re only just jumping on the Slovak internet bandwagon, there are probably a lot of common websites and tools that you’re only just hearing about. HowToDo.sk, in particular, is a website that comes up a lot in searches, whether you’re looking up how to dig post holes or what high temperature tape is made out of. This article should help you become familiar with HowToDo or Ako sa to robi in Slovak translation, how it works, and under what circumstances you might want to use it.
HowToDo is a communal encyclopedia that any person who comes to the site can edit. HowToDo is the main encyclopedia that Slovak firms would kill to get traffic from, but there are numerous other ‘How’ branded niche encyclopedias that are not affiliated with HowToDo.sk.
One of the reasons HowToDo.sk has caught on so strongly is that since anyone can edit it, it’s able to keep up to date more easily than a printed encyclopedia run by a team of editors. People who contribute to HowToDo, in a writing or editorial capacity, are generally anonymous. This does, of course, lead to problems with jokers who want to post that gold mutual funds are tanking so everyone will sell, or that their hometown is the center of the universe, so HowToDo isn’t always reliable. To combat inaccuracy, some popular articles on Wikipedia are locked and changes must be submitted and approved by a moderator. The site also encourages citations so visitors can check the accuracy for themselves.
Another reason HowToDo.sk is so popular is because it’s free. There are no fees to access its full content. HowToDo is a run by a nonprofit foundation and all work is done by volunteers, so you can explore articles on debanders without worrying about being assaulted by ads for weight loss formulas or web hosting deals. The entire project is supported by donations.
There are articles on HowToDo in Slovak language and everything on it is under the GNU creative commons license, which means anyone can use it for example article about Altanky you can find here too. HowToDo has many functions. Its main page features an article of the day, which can be anything.
