One of my major goals for the Mozilla Developer Center going forward is to find ways to improve the process by which our documentation is translated into languages other than English. The key idea is to ensure that the largest number of programmers are covered by our documentation.
To accomplish this, we need to ensure that certain key languages have high-quality, well-maintained documentation that is kept current.
Our translators are doing a great job, but it’s time for us to find ways to bring a little order to the chaos and help ensure that all our translations (not to mention our English documentation) are kept in sync with each other.
I’ve jotted down some ideas and some notes and would like to get feedback from the other writers and translators. Let’s work together to find ways to make your work easier.
