Project is very new. You can fork and start translating.

To avoid fragmentation and reader confusion, please choose one of these options:

  1. We link to your GitHub Pages fork with [username]
  2. We link to your GitHub Pages fork with a subdomain (e.g. "")

If you use a subdomain, enter the subdomain into the CNAME file, and ask us to setup DNS for you. If you do not use a subdomain, remove the CNAME file entirely else your fork will not build when pushed.

When your translation is ready, open an issue on the Issue Tracker to let us know.
