From Joomla! Documentation
Revision as of 15:16, 6 March 2014 by Tom Hutchison
This page provides information and guidelines for Joomla! Documentation's localisation policy.
Our current documentation is en-GB. The English version of a page will be the source language and aid in tracking changes to the page. Simply, there must be a English version of a page for translation.
Tools for Translators
Below is a list of the language extension and available tools used for translations on Joomla Documentation
We currently have installed and are using the Translate extension, which uses the subpage convention to mark and translate pages on Joomla! Documentation.
The translation system is recommended at least for most visited and stable pages. Further policies have not been established and are being considered.
- Let someone know you want to be a translator.
- To translate: just go Special:LanguageStats, put in your language code, click the "Show Statistics" button, and view message group statistic. You may click any message group and start translating if you are an approved translator.
- To administer translations: Special:PageTranslation, Special:AggregateGroups.
You can request a page to be added to translation by preparing it for translation, then a translation administrator will have to enable it (see the tutorial How to prepare a page for translation); otherwise, ask directly to one of the Translation administrators to do it.
Translation Policies by Language
Below is a list of links to pages, localised, explaining common translation wording and do's and do not's when translating from English pages to your language.
