Title: Is there an English language version of the Wiki?
Post by: timc on 2012/05/26, 19:37:12
Is there an English version of the Wiki that I cannot find, or is it only available in German?

Thanks,
Tim

At this point it's all German except for the major subject titles.

Is there something you're looking for, that's not covered in the manual?

Thanks for your response, dibl. No, I just wanted to look through the Wiki to see if I could pick up any additional tips.

FYI, a new siduction forum is being developed, on a new forum platform. Once that is done and online, I've considered translating some of the most useful wiki items, and also writing some further items for the English users.  Hopefully that can happen later this year.

Meanwhile, bear in mind that siduction is Debian, and there's already a lot of Debian coverage all over the 'net.

In chrome (and I guess Firefox) you can install the Google Translate add-on.  this handily recognises 'foreign' languages and offers to translate them for you.  Does a pretty good job, or at least, it allows you to understand the wiki pages.

How about adapting the existing wiki to handle multi lingual?  I seem to remember that you can do this with media wiki. http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Translate

Additionally for a small fee (or even free if you ask them nicely) you could use the Google Translate API https://developers.google.com/translate/ to do a first pass or automatic translation.  See also http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Google_Translator which may also be of some use.

Happy to help, I do PHP for a living.
