Sweet ! Sub tree by language ?

So once we have translated where do we post it?

Maybe we can use your post as overview to prevent double work.
Translated texts can be linked directly to a flag behind the link.

Hi Maki,

Is it possible to include a Language button in forum content? That should speed up translation and realise if there is already some work on it.

Cheers,

I am nevertheless sceptical that “raw” community translations should remain as the only available option for disseminating all these materials. Despite the strong reactions they sometimes provoke in me, I somehow believe in editors … how ironic

neat idea only languages don’t particularly neatly symmetrically correlate with countries. additionally some countries have multitudes of different languages. so perhaps there isn’t a panacea. closest i think is the i18n format with country/language initial as a code. for example, gb-en (great britain/english), us-es (united states/spanish), ke-sw (kenya/swahili) etc

I started adding Dutch Subtitles to the Whiteboard session with Charles. But it takes a whole lot of time and have to rewind all the time and listen again. Not sure if it’s worth all the effort, since most Dutch people understand English very well.

Guess it’s easier to translate papers or blog posts. I’ll look into one of those.

i agree that there needs to be some organised way where content which matters most which i also believe people would be most interested and excited to translate would be the best approach.

there are also countries where folks speak native languages as well as english, like your dutch example, i’m in a similar situation where most people who speak swahili, a good proportion of them speak english. so i find myself not prioritising that.

i’m working on some simplified crypto video text/illustration explanations, aligning translations with those as i believe those will have the most impact.
