To: debian-doc Cc: deb18nI have a suggestion. Looking at SVN , we have several major docs needing translation.
But we don't coordinate that anywhere (AFAIK).How about a wiki page summarizing doc-translation procedures, and containing, or linking to, specific instructions on how to translate each doc? We could branch it from the main i18n page .
The D-I manual  already has translation status pages and other info which might be useful to other doc owners.
I would be happy to write a wiki page with general instructions, if I knew what they were.
Do we have any coordinated approach to doc translation? If not, we could start with this wiki page. Then we could publicize it on debian-i18n, keep translators informed.Docs available in PO or XLIFF format will get priority, because they're more efficient for translators. 
I'm coming at this from a position of confusion about doc-translation, knowing I already have three doc translations to maintain, not knowing how to keep track of that (apart from the D-I manual), and trying to work it how all the doc translations fit together.
Your experience in this area is very welcome. :) from Clytie Vietnamese Free Software Translation Team http://vnoss.net/dokuwiki/doku.php?id=projects:l10n  http://svn.debian.org/wsvn/ddp/manuals/trunk/  http://wiki.debian.org/I18n  http://d-i.alioth.debian.org/manual/  Conversion tools include po4a http://alioth.debian.org/projects/po4a/ and Pootle and the Translate Toolkit http://translate.sourceforge.net/wiki/pootle/index http://translate.sourceforge.net/wiki/toolkit/index
