I absolutely agree on this point. As a new contributor (and not only as
such) the current situation can be quite confusing.
I think we have to agree on different categories for tools and
websites. Especially sites such as the developer portal, start page,
download pages and so on are sites which are accessed by new users
first. From my point of view, those are the most important ones . But
as already mentioned by others, it's a lot of work and needs a lot of
I am happy to assist here and might as well contribute some
translations in German whenever it's a good time to start.

A few month ago, we created a (wish)list of subjects, related to i18n
and l10n :
As a new contributor, I was a bit confused about the many websites and
tools of Fedora, because some are homemade others where use as SaaS
solutions and didn't really know how to navigate from one to another,
nor understood if translation was missing because the software didn't
support it or because of the lack contributors.
I made a list of every websites I found :
The status is not very good :
* some websites are not translated (ex : developer.fedora)
* many sites don't have the Fedmenu button to help navigation
* most of tools are not translated
It was pretty much expected, but now, how do we fix this ?
The work is huge, so we need to make a little bit of planning.
What are the guidlines we would like to have for websites and tools ?
We also have to agree with websites teams and infra team and be
realistic : none of our groups can handle and objective like 100% of
websites and tools have to be internationalized and translated.
Anyone would like to help me writing and then discussing with #Website
and #Infra groups ?
Subjects are :
* global guidelines
* short term objectives (2016)
* mid-term objectives (2017)
