Audacity developers and translators:
I graduated from Harvey Mudd College on Sunday, and this week I am
moving from California to Vancouver BC. I won't be able to work on
Audacity development for about a week, though I will try to read my
Sunday night I had the great pleasure of meeting with Joshua and Dominic
in person. We talked of many things, including some translation news:
First, the new website should be ready soon. Dominic is working on
code to make the site multi-lingual. We will send instructions to the
translation list when we are ready for localization.
Second, we talked about the documentation. Because Audacity 1.0 will have
only the English interface, the translated user's manual will need to give
instructions for using the English version. Keep this in mind while
translating the current version of the docs. When the manual is updated
for Audacity 1.1, then it will refer to the localized interfaces.
Finally, we talked about setting up mailing lists where international users
can send questions in their own languages, and other users or contributors
can answer those questions (using the English help list as a resource when
necessary). Let us know if you have any comments on this idea.
Thanks everyone, and I'll be back soon!
