Featured Forum – Era & Eric Lévi Fan Forum

Hi, today we’re talking with Jesus (Ihesus) admin of the international fan forum, Era & Eric Lévi. Jesus has been very helpful to Lefora. He completed translating one of the most requested languages on Lefora – Español (Spanish). Jesus spent many hours and we are thankful to him and all the other translators that have helped Lefora expand into other regions. I’m sure many Spanish speakers are thankful to Jesus as well.

Hi Jesus, could you give us a brief background on Era Ecic Levi?
Well, Era is a music band created by the French composer and musician Eric Levi in the year of 1995-96. Era has been recognized for the song ‘Ameno’ as a very successfully song in the Mastercard theme song in the FIFA World Cup in France in 1998 and all over the World. Now Era has 4 albums, the last one is called ‘Reborn’ (you can listen on my forum). Some people say Era is New Age, others say Era is pop-rock. For me it’s just great music.

Do you have any goals you would like to accomplish with your forum?
Of course I do, to be one of the largest forums of Era on the Internet and give this music to people who want to learn about them. On our forum, we have people from México, the United States, Egypt, Russia, Brasil, etc. No matter what language you speak, we’ve got an answer too.

Were there any reasons why you choose Lefora over another forum service?
Before choosing lefora, I’ve tried some others, like miarroba (one of the biggest but only in spanish), tuforo, etc… and also yahoo groups. But no one has the features and the capacity that lefora has. Here I can post in guest mode. I can embed videos, create my own widgets or… upload files; all this together like nothing else.

How did you find the experience of translating Lefora into another language?
I always wanted to help others and this was just a coincidence. I read the post, left a message, and then I translated the site. It was nice, it is a new and great experience to translate an entire website to another language. I had never done this before, except on my own website). Doing this felt really good because I know there are thousand people who want Spanish. It is something to help ‘feel at home’.

Anything else you would like to share?
Lefora has grown very fast, and with reasons, because the service, is really impressive. You can receive support almost immediately (if you need it), there are always someone who will help you. There are other admins that can help you as well, like a workgroup. Lefora is the best place to host a forum and it is very easy to use. I am very happy with my decision to host my forum in lefora. Performance is quality and lefora is both.
