Just like any other good free documentation, the Debian Administrator’s Handbook deserves to be widely translated. And in truth, we had the chance to have several offers to help with translation even before the book was available…
Last week, I have written some instructions for translators. You can find README.translators and README.git in the Git repository.
So if you’re interested to help translate the book to your native language, read those files and join the dedicated mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org). You can either join a pre-existing translation team or start a new one.
Right now (2012-05-31), the following translations have already started:
We also contacted persons who (at some point) volunteered to help for the following translations:
- Brazilian Portuguese
Do you like challenges? For any translation that reaches 100%, we will try to organize a print version of the book as well.
Looking forward to talk with you on the mailing list. 🙂
