GNUnited Nations
a build system for translations.

GNUnited Nations is a build system for translating the web site at It works via template files, which allow changes to be merged into individual translations of a page, from which the final HTML is generated. In effect, this helps to keep all translations of a page up-to-date.

See also the trans-coord organizational project.


The package includes two manuals -- the GNUnited Nations Manual (gnun) and the GNU Web Translators Manual (web-trans); the latter is the official documentation for the translation process and is a must read for all translation team leaders.

An online copy in various formats is available at:
