''@@ WIP''

The [[|CouchDB documentation]] will now also be available in other
languages than English. If you would like to read the documentation in your own language,
we invite you to join the CouchDB translation team. Subscribe to the [[|localisation-mailing-list]]
and drop us a note on which language you would like to work.

== How are translations made? ==

The CouchDB project is using the [[|ASF translation
service]]. The software behind the service is called [[|Pootle]]
and offers a good web-interface for translation work.

== Joining the translation team ==

After you have dropped us a note on the mailing-list, that you want
to join the translation team, we will create an account for you at the [[|ASF
translation service]] and send you an invitation email with the credentials for your account.
Then you are ready to go. Please read the following info before you start.

'''Important note:''' Please change your password after you have logged in the first time

== Start translating ==

The overview for all available languages can be found at
Choosing the language you want to do translations for will direct you to the translation sources.
You will find a directory and file structure. This structure is representing the documentation

The translation will be made in a .po file ([[|more
info regarding GNU_gettext]]). Clicking on a file you want to translate will open a new page
with status information for this file. To start your translations click ''Continue translation''.
You will then be directed to a new page where all sections of this file are available. Clicking
on a section will open a text field where you fill in your translation. After finishing you
have to possibilities:

=== Submit mode ===

When submitting your translation, you indicate that the translation is final. If you thing
some more work has to be done on this section, mark the checkbox ''Needs work''. If the checkbox
is marked, the translation will be shown in italic text mode.

=== Suggest mode ===

When using this mode, your translation will be marked as a suggestion. This is visible on
the language overview page. The suggestion has to be accepted by you or by another translator.
