The PawPeds website is meant as an international tool for education and information. So we are counting on lots of volunteers to translate articles for us in several languages.
All translators form an international team, and we would like to thank all these volunteers for doing such a difficult job - usually on very short notice.
If you would like to help with translation work, you are very welcome to contact the translation coordinator:

The domain name pawpeds.com was registered by Ulrika Olsson in 2000, for future use as a site for information about the genetic variation in the breeds and the history of the pedigreed cats, and to educate cat breeders about health issues and other issues of cat breeding.
Since then, PawPeds has become a non-profit organisation and has evolved into a useful tool, educational as well as informative for breeders. We are now publishing pedigree databases for different breeds and different species, with functions for calculating the inbreeding coefficient and pedigree analyses. We also publish articles related to these topics. Along the way, we are adding articles about other health issues and breeding issues as well, for the education of breeders. PawPeds also provide Internet Courses.
In order to keep not only the project running, but also to develop it further, money is needed. So if you'd like to see PawPeds develop further, please give us a hand and contribute to the site! Your donations will help to upgrade equipment, like computers and servers, and to develop new projects.

PawPeds' databases are maintained by people who are specializing in a particular breed (or breeds). We call them database maintainers and they work in a self-developed program that we call PawPedsClient. The program is connected to a central database which makes it possible to have more than one person entering data at the same time. Many of our databases also have significantly more than one database maintainer.
About the program
To present the pedigree databases on the web, we use a self-developed program that we call Netpedigree. The program is under constant development, and from time to time, updates are made to introduce new features, test new ideas and correct problems.
