ROSA translation in Greek

Сообщение dsch » 04 июл 2015, 20:10

Another post targeted to ROSA staff.

I use ROSA as my only OS, on Desktop and Laptop. I am very satisfied and thankful to all ROSA Development Team and I would like to contribute to ROSA development, however, my programming skills are still very limited and thus, I would like to start by translating ROSA documentation in Greek. I am aware that Greek userbase of ROSA is not that big and probably there is no big need of documentation in Greek, but I think that it doesn't hurt either. If it's there, it will be easier for more Greek-speaking users to switch to ROSA in the future, if they want to.

I speak three languages and Greek is my native language. I am well educated and I can assure you that the documents will be translated in professional-like manner.

If ROSA staff support my initiative, I would like someone to assist me with it.
  • - Where to start?
    • I am planning to start by translating the ROSA wiki pages, do you think that I must start with something else?
  • - What is the most effective way to translate?
    Should I save the translated documents In plain text files and provide a maintainer with them or there is an online platform to translate the documents there, directly?[/list][/list]

    I am open to any comments, suggestions and directions.

    Hello dsch,
    For wiki translations u may start reading some technical info about wiki formatting basics, follow the link: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Formatting and further links from that page. For your first steps in formatting use the Sandbox here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Sandbox
    The formatting rules apply to every wikimedia instance including ROSA wiki. Once u are familiar w the formatting basics, u may start translating the ROSA wiki articles.

    Yes, «0325f7f1cbf9c2c04556d4bb92d129a4d507dd6b» (no spaces, no quotes, just hex code) is the right answer to this captcha.
    I just check it once more and successfully registered another test account.

    We need this captcha becaouse without this captcha our wikis was continouosly raped by spammers.

    I cannot confirm my e-mail address since I don't receive any e-mail for confirmation.
    I have double and triple checked my e-mail including junk folder.

    I want to thank ДроноваЮ for helping me to overcome all issues with my wiki account registration.

    I have read all the proposed links you provided me with:

    As you may have already guessed, I have never translated/edited a wiki and I need some guidance.

    Should I now open wiki articles, hit the "edit" link, translate them and save them?
    Should I request a new language section to be created?
    How can I keep up with new articles and changes in the articles that I have translated? I realized that all translated editions of the wiki except of Russian are dated.
