Translating pages

Hi - I see you are translating the instructions for installing KDE software. Why not get a Translator account - use the link on the right, here - and do your translations on the main page? The translation tool offers you one "message" at a time, so you can work at your own speed - no need to complete a page all at once Face-smile.png and it has the advantage of being useful to others.

Nice to mead you. It's because I'm very slowly and newer in this world.

You're very welcome. I've enabled your translator account - if you need immediate help you will usually find someone on IRC, #kde-www, that can answer your questions.

Welcome to the Translator group

Welcome to the Translator group.You will notice on Translation_Workflow#Language-specific_guideline_pages that a Team Leader exists for your language. While there is no requirement for you to contact your Team Leader, it would be appreciated if you do so.

I suspect that you will want to try on-line translation first, unless you are very familiar with off-line translation tools. It would be a good idea to read through Tasks_and_Tools, Translate_a_Page and Translation_Workflow before starting work. You will find lots of help linked from those pages, but please ask if there is anything you don't understand. You will notice that Translation_Workflow has a link to a language specific page, where the Team Leader for your language is named. He/She will always help with language-specific questions.

The option to export messages for off-line working is found in the first combibox of the page you reach via the Translate this Page link. When you work off-line we ask you to send your first set of messages to me for uploading. Once it is confirmed that they upload without a problem you will be told how to upload them yourself.

Please ask if you are unsure about anything. Enjoy!
