How to coordinate translations

General Information

The translation work is being coordinated on - specifically on the following channels:

  • #g8-translation - general coordination and de->en/es
  • #it - italian language translation
  • #francophone - french language translation

We are also using this wiki page to keep track of translation. Don't forget to keep it up to date! Even if you are not translating, we still need people keeping an eye on the newswire for important articles.

For general information on the media work around the summit subscribe to imc-g8 (in english) or imc-g8-2007 (in german).

Requests for translation

If you see an important article on the newswire, then please add a translation request below. There are not many translators and we often do not have good internet access - the process can be dramatically improved if we can simply sit down and start translating.

How to use this page

To add a translation request, click the edit button to the right of the To Do section and add a new row at the top of the table (below the header lines, which are preceded by a ! mark). You add a row by writing |- |Document |Description |Language, each on a seperate line, replacing these words with your document's details. The document's name should be a link to where it can be found (see here to learn how to do links in MediaWiki).

If you want to volunteer to do a translation, click the edit button to the right of the Being Done section and add a new row at the top of the table as above with the details of the document you will be translating. Don't forget to remove the corresponding row from the To Do section. When you're finished, you have to move the document you've translated to the Done section, telling people where you've put your translation by providing a link to where it can be found.
