I made a few tests this morning. poedit is crashing quite often for me. Maybe it's some bug triggered by Italian encoding/characters(we use lots of accented letters, both acute and grave depending on word meaning, actual grammatical rules are quite strict too)). I have also tested gtranslator which looks more robust. Apart from that a github workflow looks a little difficult, due to the need to solve merge conflicts on the whole file, and the various tools generating slightly different output. I also know for sure some of the people I could get to help me don't use git and would not be happy of it being mandatory for this work :) > > Zanata looks great, I will definitely try it out.

I created an account on zanata (madpilot) and I have made a quick test with the handbook file. It looks like its doing what is needed and can be used even by non developers (which is not quite true for git/github). Regarding this, maybe creating a single "FreeBSD handbook" project could be useful. Are other translators interested in testing having one common project on this platform? Looks like it is also possible to have multiple revisions in parallel, so each language team can work on its own target revision of the upstream handbook. Otherwise each language team can have it's own project if a more granular approach is deemed better. -- Guido Falsi <m...@madpilot.net> _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list https://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-doc To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-doc-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
