ABOUT OUR PROJECT: The first edition of The Data Journalism Handbook has been widely used and widely cited by students, practitioners and researchers alike, serving as both textbook and sourcebook for an emerging field. It has been translated into over 12 languages  and is used for teaching at many leading universities, as well as teaching and training centres around the world. Five years after its publication, we are developing a revised second edition, which will be published as an open access book with an innovative academic press. The new edition will be significantly overhauled to reflect these developments. It will complement the first edition with an examination of the current state of data journalism which is at once practical and reflective, profiling emerging practices and projects as well as their broader consequences. This second edition of the Data Journalism Handbook is being produced by the European Journalism Centre and Google News Lab, with support from the Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture and Science. The Handbook will be available as a free open-source download on datajournalismhandbook.org in Autumn 2018. We want to make the Handbook freely available for everyone around the world and are currently looking for partners to help us translate it into French, German, Spanish, Italian, Arabic, Indonesian Bahasa, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Hindi, Bengali and any other language you wish us to include. You can also get in touch with us directly at info@datajournalismhandbook.org or use #datahandbook to get our attention on social platforms.
Utami Diah Kusumawati/ utamid.kusumawati@gmail.comINDONESIACurrently, I am a Graduate Student of MA Professional Journalism at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) as well as a Fulbright scholar. My specialization of study is data journalism and data visualization (Anaconda+Jupyter Notebook+Agate+Open Refine+ R) under the supervision of Prof. Matt Waite (drone+immersive technology+datajournalism). Prior to this, I have been a journalist for 5 years in several media in Indonesia, including CNN Indonesia (multimedia platform), The Jakarta Post (newspaper) and National Journal Newspaper (Indonesia) and a member of Journalists for Diversity (SEJUK).

The books include Something Blue by Melanie Griffin (Esensi Publishing), Sweet Stuff by Donna Kauffman (Esensi Pub.), Learning Shapes by Kathy Charner (Esensi Pub.), Blue Economy by Maritime Affairs and Fisheries Ministry, and exhibitions catalogues of Bentara Budaya Jakarta. I also have edited Indonesian version books such as Predictable Results in Unpredictable Times by Stephen R.

Veronica FerrariUKOver the past years I got really interested in data journalism and I have been reading several resources starting of course with your Data Journalism Handbook. I would be really interested in taking part in the translation of the new edition of the book in Italian, either translating parts of it or reviewing translations from other people. During my journalism studies in Pavia, Italy, and at the London School of Journalism, I could see the growing importance of data journalism, from being a specific niche to becoming a well rounded sector with its own inside niches.
Currently I work as an Editorial Analyst at Social360, a social media monitoring company. My main task is writing reports and analysis pieces for international companies, government bodies and digital agencies. Using the firm’s proprietary data-scraping content management system, I research social media data on breaking news, relevant online conversation and market trends, review digital campaigns and map industry influencers. My reports provide my clients with clear and concise insights and briefings for their executives.
Following my interest in data, ahead of the past UK general election, I created a weekly newsletter including infographics and data charts that reported figures on the political parties’ engagement and conversation on social platforms.
To stay up to date with the latest development in journalism, I attend the online courses offered by the Knight Centre for Journalism including Fact checking, the tool to combat fake news, which was sponsored by Google News Lab. These courses provided me with useful journalism skills, including the ability to understand the importance of original sources and verification of content. I have a background in languages and translation, I have been a freelance translator from Italian into English and from English into Italian and I taught Italian language classes to adults at London Lessons languages school. My Twitter handle is @_vero_ferrari, and you can find my portfolio here: http://social360monitoring.com/blog/archive.php?author=Veronica%20Ferrari and here: https://veroinlondon.wordpress.com/

Jihad Al-ShebeniEgyptMy name is Jihad Al-Shebeni. I’ve been working as a journalist and a translator since 2011. During the last two years, I contributed in translating two books about Data Journalism into Arabic. The first book was about the basics of Data Journalism and it was published by Al-Arabi Publishing and Distributing: http://www.alarabipublishing.com.eg/, and the second book came under the title: “Data Journalism Handbook for Covering Human Rights Issues,” and it was in contribution with Journalists for Human Rights. It can be found here: https://issuu.com/amreleraqi/docs/jhr_for_net/10.

Currently I am the Content Manager of the Arab Data Journalists Network (ArabDJN). It’s a platform about all that is related to Data Journalism all over the world. It aims to provide Data Journalists in the Arab world with all that they might need, old and new. My work involves a lot of translation, as the major content about data journalism is in other languages than Arabic.

I've applied to translating Alberto Cairo's PhD, he agreed and we're currently working on translating it.

As for my work in ArabDJN, you can check it http://www.arabdjn.com/, as abovementioned I am the
Content Manager of the site since day one. Please ignore the English and French versions of the website, as we're still working on them.
