I can support:

  • English
  • Hindi (not enabled on Askbot)

I can support (Simplified & Traditional) Chinese.

I can do Bengali (probably).

Folks, Altought Discourse has tranlation, all depend of this :

https://www.transifex.com/discourse/discourse-org/

Hindi 1%
Bengali 1.2%

Well Documented :

  • English
  • Spanish
  • Portuguese
  • Chinese
  • Rusian
  • French
  • German
  • Italian

Maybe Involve Translation Team

Q: Has it any value open a Language not well Documented...?

Update We can add :

  • Greek

Regards., HTH

@hhlp I joined transifex using my github credentials to help with the translation. There are ~6000 untranslated strings. (Edit: Works on chromium).

@ankursinha Should we need to ping our translation team in Fedora and ask them why they are so inactive?

No, this is different. This permits users to view the Discourse interface in their language of choice. The Discourse interface can be viewed in these languages. That does not mean that text that users write will automatically get translated into all these languages.

I'm not sure I understand. Why would the Fedora translation team be translating Discourse? They work on translating Fedora resources---the website, for example---or other upstream tools that they are interested in. They are not responsible for translating every software that there is.

In general, in our volunteer community, we do not ask people why they haven't done something---this is not our dayjob after all. We request them, we encourage them, and sure, we hold them accountable when they've agreed to carry out a task, but we do not expect them to be working on anything and everything.

What you can do is mail the translation list asking if anyone would like to get involved in translating Discourse. Folks that are interested will volunteer.

I'm not sure I understand. Why would the Fedora translation team be translating Discourse? They work on translating Fedora resources---the website, for example---or other upstream tools that they are interested in. They are not responsible for translating every software that there is.

I said in general because when I saw 6000 strings untranslated I was going to ask them for help. However when I saw the ML, there were no activity for 4-5 years. This is why I asked if I can send a mail asking them If they "exist" and can help translating Discourse.

Yes, Comunity Can type wharever language that they want in his/her respective Category but I supose they also want see the site in their own language?...

Conclusion : Site in English, Open a Language With the Respective Category with a Community members than can support it...

Regards.,

They do exist. Not sure why the ML is quiet. Try their IRC channel? Maybe
more people there? L10N is active i think.

Thanks,

Ankur

Each user can already set their preferred language similar to how they can
set their preferred theme---if thats what youre thinking of @hhlp.

I will help with English and Persian.

Hi,
frafra here, administrator of the official Italian Fedora community (fedoraonline.it).
I would be happy to help and support the Italian language, as it seems to make sense to freeze our old FluxBB forum and join the rest of the Fedora community on the same Discourse platform.
I do not know how this platform would work, in term of admin, moderators and so on, so I would be glad if anyone could provide any kind of information with respect to that.

Thank you all!
Frafra

I'm interested too in supporting italian language.
In addition @frafra could involve the current fedoraonline.it fourm moderators/administrators.

Can you open another ticket to discuss this topic? Let's keep this one to track language moderators, otherwise we'll be going through lots of comments to make up our list?

In general, we'll seed each language with a few community moderators and then the discourse trust system will take care of things. It'll reward active users that answer well and so on. We don't need too many admins---the admins are there only to handle technical glitches which won't come up too often now that it's being hosted by discourse itself. The moderators will do the important work of monitoring and enabling discussion.

How does that sound?

(Admins can view credit card details and change lots of things on the site, so we'd better leave that the bex and mattdm and an additional tiny group that does infra and so on)

I can help with:

  • Persian (Farsi)
  • English

Thanks everyone for volunteering. Please join the discussion on the other tickets. This one for example #143 could use your comments :)

I've created the categories and user-groups for English. I will not file individual tickets for each language and work on those one by one. Closing this now.
