It has been suggested that the translators should be part of the [https://www.gnu.org/server/standards/README.translations.en.html#teams GNU Translators team] and that text but not software lists should be translated. For example, the text before and after the list at [[Collection:Windows]] but not the list itself. We want to keep lists on the FSD so they can be maintained by FSD contributors so they can use their accounts.

  • Summary: A group dedicated to translate few but important pages (category:translations) on the FSD. Development pages (eg Free Software Directory:Participate) etc are updated too frequently and are mainly used by FSD contributors that already know English, and these pages are not read by regular visitors, so they should not be translated due to the complexity to set up a dedicated translation group for that.

This table represents the availability of the volunteer FSD translators: translators may ask for activation/deactivation at any moment and inactive translators should not be contacted.

Instructions

All translators can submit new translations by creating a new page with the same name of the old one but postfixed with the ISO code of the destination language (ie. PagePage.it).
Translations must respect the original layout of the page by not introducing structural changes and must not convey new or different meanings than the original text. Dynamically generated content (including software listings) must not be subject to translation while the static text of any kind should be always translated.
Translations become visible after administrative revision but, after that, are offered "as is", without implicit or explicit guarantees of any kind.

Comments

It has been suggested that the translators should be part of the GNU Translators team.
