|This page is obsolete. For information on translation see Working with Languages and links in that section.|
Much of the information that was on this page is now outdated. How-Tos exist for all the common contributor tasks, including translation, both on- and off-line, and can be found linked from Tasks and Tools.
|When editing pages that are already marked for translation, you will see section markers similar to < !--T:1-- >. Usually each paragraph is one section. You should not change the markers, unless you fully delete a section, in which case you should simply remove the old marker. When adding new sections, you don't need to add marker to it – the marker will be added automatically when your changes are approved for translation. If you want to move a section, move also the section marker with it. That is the only time when you touch the markers - the system will do the rest.|

The KDE voice is helpful, aspirational, and genuine. Our communications strive to be:
KDE relies on volunteer translators to help make useful KDE information available around the world. As volunteers, you are not required to have any formal language training, but we do ask that you know your fluency and get the support you need to finish a translation if you run into tricky language issues or content that lies outside your translation capabilities.
Because many of the articles on KDE wiki are technical in nature, it also helps to be familiar with—and even fluent in—KDE products. You will need to be able to distinguish between common terms and technical terms in context and determine when user interface or workflow elements that are mentioned in the articles need to be translated.

I propose that the Discussion page attached to this page should be used for orderly debate about issues noted, particularly issues where existing markup is causing problems. Old threads, long since resolved will be cleaned out, and once decisions are made I will update the relevant help pages. I would ask you to put a Watch on Talk:Translation_Workflow.

We propose to have Team Leaders for each language. As we get leaders appointed, they will take charge of a page of guidelines for their specific language, where they will be named. They will have final say on any question relating to their language. The guidelines are listed below:
