i18n - 1. Introduction
The Fink project has undertaken an effort to add full internationalization support to its website, in order to make the site more accessible worldwide. Thanks to Baba Yoshihiko, there is now a framework in which pages in multiple languages can be employed.
We currently have volunteers working on the following languages:
- English (the baseline documentation)
- Simplified Chinese
A chart of the organization of the i18n team is available here.
If you wish to help out with the internationalization effort, there are several things that you can do:
- Join discussions on the fink-i18n mailing list. This is where we will discuss the mechanics of internationalization, announcements of updates to documents will be made, etc.
- Look over the translation for your own language. You may have a translation that flows better than does the official one, you may find a translation error, and other possibilities.
- Become a translator yourself. If your language isn't currently
represented (or even if it is), and you think you can provide an
effective translation, then you may want to volunteer to be a
translator for your language.
Be advised, however, if you are the first person to work on your language: there are quite a few documents that you will have to translate initially. Once this is done, there typically will be small changes made.
