Hi,
  yesterday I copied the content of the page:
http://wiki.inkscape.org/wiki/index.php/Inkscape047-PRannounce
to
http://wiki.inkscape.org/wiki/index.php/Inkscape047-PRannounce-es
to translate it to Spanish.

But I think what I was meant to do was to copy the content of:
http://wiki.inkscape.org/wiki/index.php/ReleaseNotes/0.47
How should I call it?
http://wiki.inkscape.org/wiki/index.php/ReleaseNotes_es/0.47
or
http://wiki.inkscape.org/wiki/index.php/ReleaseNotes/0.47es

  Also, where do I link it from?

  Thanks in advance,

  Hi,
  I took the liberty of changing the topic in order to fork this trhead.

Lucas,

I agree that it would be helpful for it to be as final as possible.
Being a native English speaker, I assumed that having knowledge in
advance would be advantageous to get most of the work out of the way.
Apparently the translation process is more specific and intricate than I
had assumed. Lucas, can you suggest what would be most helpful to
translators? Not saying anything until it's finalized?
Stating what is
completely finalized?

  This last option would be great.
  The main problem with translating wiki texts is that it's difficult to see what has changed from one version of the text to another. I know there's an option to see the changes in a page, that's part of the wiki philosophy, but when using "third party" translation tools that becomes almost useless.
  For example, I use a tool called "OmegaT" to translate web pages. The workflow is as follows (for almost all types of texts):
  1- download the html page
  2- segment the file (the software separates the text in "translation units"; phrases, titles, etc.)
  3- translate all the segments
  4- put the file back together in the target language
  5- upload the translated file

Now imagine the original file changes, the workflow is almost the same:
  1- download the html page
  2- segment the file (this separates the text in "translation units"; phrases, titles, etc.)
  3- the software detects the segments that are not the same and marks them as "fuzzy" (usually indicating a percentage of coincidence)
  4- translate the changed and new segments
  5- put the file back together in the target language

  With wiki texts the worklow fails at #1. You cannot download the text to be interpreted by the software, so it all becomes a manual process (back to the ice age of comparing texts one next to the other, yuk).

  I don't know a real solution yet, maybe there's space here for an open-source "Wiki Translation" project ;-) such as those discussed at http://wiki-translation.com/

  Anyway, We'll do our best !!!
 

Cheers,
Josh
