Translations and Localization (Bookshelf)

From Outreach Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The Bookshelf materials will be created in English and designed and produced to enable local chapters and other Wikipedia community members to localize them for their community. To support this, the materials will be:

  • Designed with a view to being translated into languages of varying lengths and character sets/alphabets. For example, the layout and visuals will be designed so that a document translated into a language that runs longer than English, such as Spanish, will not require re-design in order to be usable.
  • Written in a simple, engaging style that avoids colloquial phrases so that translations can be straightforward.
  • Modularly produced so that local communities can replace screenshots with screenshots showing their own language Wikipedia and so materials can be updated.
  • Produced with open source production tools so that localization teams will not need to purchase new software.
