@RandellDawson I would love your advice on this. We would want to create some basic guidelines on what translators should watch for while working on translations.

Hi @freeCodeCamp/moderators !

We would want to create:

  • A low friction guide for people to be able to translate the coding challenges.
  • This guide is to be generic for all languages, with a notice on the top that we are currently accepting only chinese translations.
  • We would want to not repeat much from the existing guide. (It can be in the same guide even).
  • We would want to stress that we would like high quality human translations, one per PR per block, section etc.
  • We would want to keep the files consistent with the schema.

Anyone interested in taking this up? Thanks a lot.

Thanks for your interest.

Where is the existing guide? Tx

There isn't one, this issue aims to help create a guide that follows the guide for the coding challenges. If you are interested in working on this, you would want to create a guide that is written for translators to be able to follow and adhere to points in my previous comment.

... and why just chinese?

We want to test out the workflow on chinese language first. We already have the older curriculum deployed in chinese and it seems a good way to test out and fix caveats involved supporting different languages in the repository.

The point being, the guide should be generic for all languages, with a notice on top saying we are working with chinese translations and deployments first.
