Just recently, Package Maintainer Docs were imported from wiki to
docs.fp.o . The import mainly involved moving the content from one
platform to another, but in certain places, the docs were seriously out
of date or otherwise in bad shape, so many places were also modified
during the move.
Until now, only the source English has been moved, next in line are
translations. This is a part of Fedora that am not very familiar with,
so I am writing to this list to ask for guidance.
My first question is, does starting a new docs.fp.o site require some
manual actions to enable localization? Currently, I cannot find anything
about the new Docs site at Fedora Weblate.
The second question is, is there anything that can be done to
automatically import those parts of the existing Wiki translations that
are still valid? The fact that the move was combined with modifications
too complicates this, but I would like to at least check if there is
some automation that could help.
Someone brought this to the docs mailing list. It seems that
non-English languages are not rendering the HTML correctly on the
project docs page. See, for example:
I thought this was related to a change that jibecfed made in the
formatting, so I reverted it. But that did not fix it. I changed the
staging site to use a branch with jibecfed's commit and it renders
So this leads me to think it's not an issue with the docs tooling. I
wonder if something was inadvertently included or excluded in the
translatable strings and that's why it's not working? (I wouldn't be
surprised if the staging site isn't syncing translations regularly,
which would explain why it works there)

There is a new website to translate: https://fedoraloveskde.org special
thanks to Carl Schwan for adding localization support. While published
in a few languages already (fr, it, pt_br, ru, tr), there is no language
button for now, but it will come in the close future.
Bug tracker for fedoraloveskde.org is:
Talking about language button, after three years of waiting (let's hope
it will be faster for Fedora loves KDE ;)), the
https://fedoracommunity.org have now a language button and don't use
external resources anymore, special thanks to darknao for doing this.

We have more and more activity on Fedora websites, some Revamp are in
progress thanks for all the people working on it with code, translations
Have a nice day,

You are on the CC list for the bug.
today at Nest, the annual Fedora conference (online), we'll have two
talks related to localization.
Translating Fedora Documentation: Indonesian Team Perspective - Andika
How to Contribute Fedora Localization - Jean-Baptiste Holcroft
As for Fedora 34 Release party, videos will be published on Youtube.
Have a nice day,
did someone submit a talk for Nest regarding localization?
Marie Nordin and Ben Cotton told me it would be great to have simple
talks explaining how to contribute translation.
If someone is willing to present something like this, it would be great!
Two subjects suggestions:
* Fedora websites & documentation translation -> I think Indonesian
translators would be great representative here!
* Fedora friends projects (pulseaudio, iputils, etc.) -> yuri, raphael
or others may be ok to explain how it works?
Context: you are talking to newcomers in the localization world. Focus
on the process and how to test/interact : what you really do and how it
reaches end users.
"I want to translate XYZ because it's a great software, how can I do?
Example with Pulseaudio"
No explanation about how it work internally is needed, only on how to
find where translations are done and how to do the job.
I can provide support if needed.
Have a nice day,
