Organized Translation Process
I'd like to see a concrete approach of the translation process, but we currently have a forum supported translation system afaik.
That's bad and that's why I'd like to mention:
You can use this site to collaborate and work together.
There is also another decentral option, that is using git/svn but that's not nearly as good as the site I've posted above.
Final Translation should get packaged into a default concrete5 installation in my opinion. You may ask why? I would ask why not? I mean do you want the additional traffic, so that users start seeking for their language.. that's not conform to your philosophy: "My, mum should be able to use Concrete5." At least when you mum is not american/english.
Have a nice weekend all :)
I'd like to see a teamup of the translators here. I would happily help translating also, if we can organize this.
ill keep adding languages, ill give specific people admin (Fernandos, Syslag, Defunct, and a few others)
Let me know for new languages
i´m not sure if this will be the best Solution! I think the best way to translate a Software is to give all users -from the specific country- (specially non-translators and non-programmers the ability to discuss the translation, give new ideas and report mistakes (via a forum,trac or whatever!)
that´s also how concrte5.fr is doing it and i did the same with concrete5-cms.de
see:http://forum.concrete5-cms.de/thread-7.html... and i´m sure this is what "normal" users want to see within an open source project!
Now you and all the others are working on closed system with no option for the users to report anything!
2)If my mom needs a CMS, she won´t search in english sites, she will only search for something german she can understand!
Sorry but in my opinion this is a bad idea!
What if the core Team choose a kind of offcial partnersite from each country(if existing) and this site should be the place where the translation has to be done!
If there is no Website existing: Why not a subforum(with the translator as mod) under the forums for each language, where people can talk in their own language and discuss about -not only- translations!
No, you're absolutely right, I was wrong, my intention was to help, but I didn't think around the edge :)
After evaluating it I see your point. The problem is that you should not put translators into a different place then that place they know and like. This is obviously wether c5's backend or the forums.
So the idea is a central place we're missing for this kind of task. Honestly it's currently a bit strangely organized. I'm still happy it works, but don't know how it works :D
(I'm sure that a smartphone app that could get linked to the translation process would make sense also. So the longer c5 stays with the translator in contact, the better it is for the community. I want to say, that an API would be nice)
Its ok for you guys to keep and manage it at mygengo.com?
if anyone wants a language added let me know, currently its for version 188.8.131.52
Though I'd prefer a place here in concrete5.org.
im also talking with them for an api
To translate you need to know english anyway. So it's ok when mygengo is only english atm.
