It’s 5:30 in the morning and I’m in my hotel room getting ready to head for the airport shortly. Thought I would jot down some thoughts about yesterday’s excellent Developer Day before I leave.
We had a rousing discussion about MDC localization, and I have a few things to work on when I get home, including setting up more information about how to do localization, as well as who’s working on which localization, in the wiki itself.
We also brainstormed a number of interesting ideas about ways to improve localization, which I’ll get into in more detail when I have a little more time.
One idea I’m particularly excited about is the idea of setting up a template that could be placed on translated pages that would cause a notice to appear if the English version of an article has changed more recently than the translation.
The folks that work on our localizations are all very enthusiastic people with a passion for the project, and it was a thrill to meet them face-to-face.
I skipped dinner last night due to my cold and the early hour of my departure today. I’ll grab something to eat once I’m at the airport.
