Welcome to the Slackware Documentation Project

Would you please add Traditional Chinese?

Should we also consider trying to get translators for India, China and Japan since those countries have high populations and are very technical?

Matthew, there is a member here, crond (chekkizar), whom you might be familiar with from Linux.com. He is in India and may be able to provide translation help. You should contact him. Tell him I suggested him for the job. He was commenting on my blog that he didn't feel he had enough Slackware knowledge to contribute here. His translation skills would more than make up for that, I would think. Keep in mind, though, India is a BIG place with many languages. I'm pretty sure Chekki is fluent in Hindi, the standard language there.

Eric, I have e-mailed Chekkizhar to see if he thinks that he can assist with the Hindi translation.

Chekkizhar stated that Hindi is not used in his location and that English would be best to target the greater audience in India, for now lets scratch localizing the content for India.

Suggestion: in the available languages list, after the English reference text for all languages, put the Local language (in local caracters too), to help people who don't understand English find your own language. For example:

Agreed. That is a good idea, Rodrigo. — V. T. Eric Layton 2012/08/28 18:42

Eric. I made the modifications. But it will be better if more people help us double-check it :)

Based in your last discussion in the SlackDocs Mailing List, the correct path to the user's page is wiki:user:<username> and NOT wiki:users:<username>. So, I'm correcting this discussion page because all signatures (except yours) are pointing to wiki:users:<username> instead to wiki:user:<username>.

All looks fine now, Rodrigo. Thank you. :-)V. T. Eric Layton 2012/08/30 09:30

Can you please correct the language tag for Serbian (sr not rs). Thanx. :) — Bojan Popovic 2012/12/01 03:30

Thanks Bojan. Fixed — Marcin Herda 2012/12/01 12:36
