I'm looking at your UI library and it's amazing, one of the best I've ever seen.
But for many developers it's very hard to use it without English documentation.
Are you planing to make it or this project is not supposed to be fully international?

Sorry for not complying with your guidelines.

Hi there! I believe you are the first foreign developer to reach out to us🎉.

We are aware that the majority of the community needs an English documentation. However our team may not be able to provide one due to limited manpower.

It doesn't mean there may never be an English documentation. Actually, we have plans to ask the community to help us create the translation. We haven't started it yet but for now what we have in mind is that our team's gonna provide a translation template so that anyone interested can contribute their translation based on it. Maybe then you and your friends can get involved😊.

Now we have some updates regarding English documentation.

A professional translation team has volunteered to help us. They are well experienced in technical documentation translation and did some really awesome jobs in the past. We're excited to have them working with us.

So stay tuned😁.

I wonder where is the documentation source code hosted? I can only find compiled code on gh-pages branch.

Thanks! Looking forward to English translation. If the directory structure for English docs is available, I can also help to translate it.

@HerringtonDarkholme Thanks!

But I think the translation team has already distributed all the docs to its members. Maybe later you can help review the translated docs.

Again, thanks for asking!

Hi,

Thank you for this beautiful library. One thing I wanted to ask, although not totally related to the documentation but a translation question, do you have any plans to add the ability to use multiple languages in some UI components or the ability to change specific texts through props? (e.g. Datepicker).

Thank you in advance.

@scoufman Most components have configurable texts (e.g. placeholder in input component) so you can change them through props. Few doesn't but we will add multiple languages to them later.

Good afternoon your library is great, I wonder if the documentation in English is already available?

@elisangelacarla Not yet. Hopefully it will be done this month. Once it's done, we will close this issue.

@rightaway Indeed yes, you can help review the translated docs.

We've created the EnglishDocs branch, and now the translation team has pushed some of their work to it: https://github.com/ElemeFE/element/tree/EnglishDocs/examples/docs/en-us .

Anyone, especially native English speakers, please feel free to review these docs by creating new pull requests.

We appreciate your contribution.

Hi everyone, today we are thrilled to announce that English docs for Element is online.

After nearly two months of working with a professional translation team, we finally have all the docs translated. That being said, these docs are forged by a bunch of Chinese. I believe they can be improved in a native English speaker's eyes. So feel free to contribute if you find the language we use in the docs any non-native.

Last week we released Element 1.0.0 after nine release candidates. Today, together with the English docs, we released version 1.0.1. Our community cannot thrive without you guys, so please don't hesitate to use Element today!

Thank you for your patience. We'll see you in element.eleme.io.

Guys, is someone working on Sketch resources translation? Our team wants to use Element and I could translate this for english if no one is working on it.

@Bisewski Great! Design resource translations are welcome. Maybe you can create a PR to https://github.com/ElementUI/Resources when you finish.

Thank you in advance. If you have any questions, just ask.
