❣️ Fedora docs is now fully translatable ❣️
by Jean-Baptiste Holcroft
the internationalization of the Fedora Documentation has seen some
1. the homepage conversion is now complete, it doesn't contain markup
anymore! But sorry, you have to translate it again.
2. I configured all projects in the translation platform All projects
start with "fedora-docs-l10n"
Translating everything means a lot of work: 92 375 messages containing 1
784 225 words.
There is a lot of duplication in some docs (install guide, admin guide,
...), but if a single person had to do this, it would represent an
effort of 112 days (with 8h of work per day and 2000 words/hour).
In terms of priority, I suggest:
2. Project description:
3. User facing content (teams descriptions, release notes, how-tos,...)
4. Dev content (packaging guideline, install guide, administrator
The global mindset I decided to apply: there is no content not worth
translating. Only you decide if it worth it or not.
I don't expect any language to reach 100%. Don't force yourself, just do
what you like.
Next step is publication, which is under Adam's responsibility (I also
asked for help from one addition infrastructure team member).
By the way, following the simple doctrine "friends of my friends are my
friends", I suggested Asciidoc.org to reuse our system for their
translation, and offered to host them in our translation platform.
After all, it's thanks to Asciidoc and Antora that we have a
documentation system. It's my way to say thank you.
