Re: [contrib] Idea for the new year : translation of the main TXP website...

Hi Steve.

Sure, you’re right. I’d told about MLP before just to promote your amazing plugin :)

Best regards,


Patrick.

Sorry for being annoying again, and feel totally free to totally ignore me. Textpattern is supposed to be flexible, elegant and easy-to-use. The very website that says so is expected to be a living proof of that.

Not only would translating the website imply we have a lively multi-lingual community, it would now also pretend that you can build a multi-lingual website with textpattern in an elegant and easy way. Those are two big lies.

One section per language is neither an elegant, nor an easy solution.

I don’t agree at all. Making the front page article available in no matter how many languages doesn’t pretend either of the things you mention. What it does show is that you can easily build a website using your own language.

The intention is clearly not to make x amount of websites. The intention is to make one website with x amount of languages, although making multilingual websites is clearly not a textpattern feature.

Perhaps the most honest solution is to make separate websites dedicated to communities of a specific language. With their own domain and corresponding suffix.

Hi!

Personaly, I think we could make this model :

The use of MLP plugin only for this excellent feature : the ability to reconize the web browser language and to switch automaticly to the corresponding translation – OR added a script to point to the translated page depending of the visitor language ;
Only one flag (US one) to switch to the original content.

Here is the work in process for the french translation. (Translators : Niconemo, Dragondz and I)

Cheers,


Patrick.

Here is the Finnish translation in process: http://www.rahinaa.biz/txp/

You may know that I also validated the XHTML and changed the header image to main header, h1-tag :) It should also be done to the real Txp.com frontpage.

Cheers!

Re: [contrib] Idea for the new year : translation of the main TXP website...

I’m not averse to folks setting up their own Txp communities for other languages, either with their own unique content or translations of the English content here. Really, the function of the non-English forums here is to help build such things, to help folks meet up. We’d even link to them, but we’d have to be told where they are, and that they are what they appear to be (since we obviously can’t read the site). There’s no reason why we can’t have minimal translation of the Txp site, and then direct folks to those other sites, or just link to those other sites altogether.

Re: [contrib] Idea for the new year : translation of the main TXP website...

Mary,

If I well understand you, I don’t want to create another main TXP website. I offer you the translated content in purpose to add it into the main TXP website. When you’ll grab it, I delete this website, obviously :)

Are you interested by this idea? How could I send you this translation when all will be finished?

Best regards,


Patrick.

And to avoid search engines’ double content ban/hatred, you should (Read: must) add 303 Redirect where the original translation were, in this case to http://www.patricklefevre.fr/txp/ redirecting to http://www.textpattern.com/da-translation-path.

If you don’t do that, and Mary adds that translation here, search engines will think that Mary stole the content from your site. So, 303 Redirect is your friend ;)

Cheers!
