Site translations

I was wondering if the site design is internationalized in the aim of supporting local language translations. If so, I'd be willing to volunteer to translate it into French (as it's basically my job).

Do you think i18n/l10n is relevant to the project?

This is a really good idea. A global community should have support for more languages than just English!


While I love this idea, we'd also need a strong multinational base to do this translation; we'd also need to see that the work would pay off. I know that translation takes a good amount of work, and I wouldn't want to have volunteers put hundreds of hours into something that is used by very few people.

At this point, what I would recommend is for representatives from individual languages submitting a request for that specific language; if there's enough support for it, we'll talk to the devs about what it would take to enable language options.

I'm going to close this topic. It doesn't mean that it's permanently off-the-tables; this just means that we'd want community support for individual languages to make sure our effort is worth all the work.
