The Almanac will be published in English, but we want to make sure that everyone can access and understand it.

I'd like to put together a team of translators to help make the Almanac available in as many languages as possible, prioritizing those with the largest developer communities. If you're interested, can you reply to this issue with the languages you're available to contribute?

The entire Almanac website would need to be translated, including: home page, methodology page, contributors page, and all chapters. If there are multiple translators for a language we can split up the work.

According to the timeline, if all goes to schedule, we'll have about 8 weeks after the chapters are completed to get them translated before launch. I'm open to making some major languages "launch blockers" if there's a good case and available resources, otherwise we can commit to translating after launch. All content in all languages will be available on GitHub, so at any time anyone could submit a PR with entire translations or specific translation fixes.

Priority Language Primary Translator Secondary
0 Japanese @MSakamaki (none)
0 Spanish @c-torres @taytus
0 Russian @Pavel-Evdokimov (none)
1 French (none) (none)
1 Portuguese (none) (none)
1 German (none) (none)
2 Dutch (none) (none)
2 Italian (none) (none)
2 Polish (none) (none)

Now that we have all three P0 languages covered, I've opened #38 to ensure that we launch in English, Japanese, Spanish, and Russian. If we can find translators for the P1 languages, those would be nice to launch with but not blocking.
