A repository for swirl's translation efforts. There are two main directories:
- menus contains translations of swirl's menus
- courses contains swirl courses written in languages other than English
A menu is just a yaml file that maps phrases in English to phrases in another language. Here's a small example:
# Comments start with an octothorpe # Write whatever notes are necessary in a comment # Here's a mapping of a hypothetical swirl menu phrase: "Do you want to go to the library?": "Do you want to go to the library?"
Mappings will appear as:
"[English phrase]": "[Phrase printed according to language options]"
When translating menus type the translated phrase below the English phrase. Here is an example of a hypothetical Spanish translation:
"Do you want to go to the library?": "¿Quieres ir a la biblioteca?"
All menu files should be named
Contributing a translation of a course is a significantly larger undertaking
compared to translating swirl's menus. You will need to familiarize yourself
swirlify an R package for
writing new swirl courses. You should browse the
swirlify documentation before getting
started. Of all of the courses maintained by Team Swirl, the following are
our most popular courses, so therefore you might want to start with
translating one of them:
- R Programming
- Exploratory Data Analysis
- Statistical Inference
- Regression Models
You can find the English source files for these courses here.
