thanks, I always like your practical approach; these are the things I think we need to do in order to enhance the situation:
the following languages have enough Plone community members that can easily (in an hour or two of work) rise the bar to 100% translation rate: French, Italian, German, Netherlands and Brazilian Portuguese (I’m already working on that); I don’t know about Traditional Chinese, Japanese or Danish, but seems doable also.
(on a side note, I don’t understand how Finnish, Romanian and Catalan have so low rate of translations; any country looking for its independence for now on should have 100% Plone translations to be taken seriously by the international community.)
also, we need to start working to get all those new kids trying to participate on GSoC and coming from India, to start translating Plone into Hindi, Bengali, Telugu, Marathi, Tamil and Urdu, at least; its hard to understand how such widely spoken languages are not done yet.
we need to find out community members that speak Arabic and Russian (seems doable in Europe) to rise the bar on that languages also.
finally, let’s face reality: Plone is not available in more than 40 languages and counting, so let’s fix that claim on the front page of plone.org.
I would like to make my friend Thiago Tamošauskas happy and translate Plone into Lithuanian, but that’s not going to happen any time soon.
covering the first 20 languages by native speakers in the world would reach almost 60% of the globe’s population: that’s good enough for me.
be careful what you wish for…
