Bug#620404: Canterbury Distribution website is not internationalized

Package: www.debian.org
Severity: grave
Tags: l10n i18n

Our new website is only available in English... even the French
translation is only 15% complete and so not shown. Of course, our French
localization is always superior to other translations, but here, this
is distressing, that they be at 0%, and the French is so low too.

Actuallamente, it seems the French translation of the website is indeed
really only 0% complete. We had a little erm, fudge factor in our
numbers, which I won't speak of further. Indeed, the new website has no
internationalization at all!

It is important that our users in Chad, Djibouti, Martinique, and the
Seychelles islands, and all the rest of the world have as good a web
browsing experience, in their own wonderful native languages as do our
English-speaking users. I am contacting all 57 translation teams to
get them to update their translations immediately, just as soon as I
get French back to 100% and finish a 150 km run.

PS, Was the new website's English reviewed by a native speaker?
Indeed some of the wording appears somehow clumsy. I encourage the
website team to take advantage of the Smith review project for the
website contents.
