Who am I?

I've been admin'ing http://docs.indymedia.org TWiki (>11000 topics) for two years, and another (private) TWiki for one year.

I've been reading twiki-dev mailing list for two years.

I wrote the FundraisingPlugin, and have been maintaining the French translation since dakar early release candidates.

I already have SVN write access to twikiplugins, in order to maintain my FundraisingPlugin.

What do I want?

Write access to SVN for the following directory: MAIN/locale/

What can I do?

I want to maintain the French translation directly in SVN, rather than doing the usual "svn diff + attach patch to ItemXXXX)" process.

Why do I want to do it?

I heavily use SVN/SVK (basically my /home directory is in SVN), so the translation work would be really easier for me if I could do it in a way that is properly integrated into my work habits : I could translate new/fuzzy strings as they appear, and avoid the pre-release hundreds-strings-translation rush...

Questions and Comments:

New application for MAIN/locale write access

Old application for twikiplugins write access

Ben, definatly - I'll enable your TWikiPlugins access next time i log into the server. I've just had a quick look at the IndyMedia site, and would like to know more about your huge amount of success with localising your TWiki, and if you could help us out wrt the localisation efforts going on the the DevelopBranch, and the DakarRelease. right now we are working on localising the templates, but I see you've gotten alot of localised topics too. how do you manage to keep the localised contributions in sync?

-- SvenDowideit - 03 Oct 2005

When we want one of our main pages to be translated, we :

  1. stabilize it, first
  2. add a request to http://translations.indymedia.org

Then someone translates it. Great.

But... the localised contributions are not really kept in sync. We lack long term experience about this, since it's a pretty new setup : we've had the main pages translated only 6 months ago.

I've already thought of bringing our localised topics into TWiki, but... these are not really "official topics" translations, more often "custom documentation" translation. That's why they're not suitable for inclusion in upstream TWiki :/

One more detail on this topic : we've made some synthetized and easy documentation topics, that we'll soon add to our WebLeftBar and of course publish them on http://twiki.org ; they're available on http://docs.indymedia.org/view/Help.

Last (and least) : since our users speak tons of different languages, we're really interrested in full UTF-8 support (the last 2 parts of ProposedUTF8SupportForI18N). We'd be able to help test stuff, for example by setting up a TWiki running with UTF-8 locale. Hope someone will be in a position to code it smile

ok - Ben, I have enabled your commit access to http://svn.twiki.org/svn/twiki/branches/DEVELOP/twikiplugins

its fantastic to see the amount of work that you guys are doing, and we hope to see the results of your experiences soon smile

-- SvenDowideit - 10 Oct 2005

Ben updated above profile and is asking now for write access to the main repository in order to work directly on the French translation. I fully support this. Please chime in with your opinions.
