I18n-101: Introduction to Translation and Contributing Qualified Translation with Useful Tips

Are you new to OpenStack i18n or using I18n tools is still difficult? Are you looking for tips on qualified translation contribution to OpenStack Community? Then come here to attend to this hand-on workshop with experienced I18n team contributors.

You will learn basic overview of how I18n team makes use of Zanata - OpenStack translation platform. One language coordinator will demonstrate how more than 80 translators in one language collaborate each other for translation and review activities through Zanata and other OpenStack tools such as Wiki, Etherpad, and IRC.

Hands-on lab includes the overall workflow of I18n translations and exercises of translation contribution with practical step-by-step procedures in Zanata. Also, a Zanata team developer and I18n PTL will share common troubleshooting techniques and the best strategies for more qualified translation by cooperating with global translation teams and interacting with other OpenStack teams.


Please note:  session attendance does have a maximum capacity.  All admittance will be on a first come, first served basis.  Thank you for your understanding.   

What can I expect to learn?

The hands-on lab is mainly designed for I18n translators and contributors, but not limited to them. The workshop is also useful for newbies who would like to join to I18n team and also anyone who are interested in OpenStack internationalization.Although translation contribution in OpenStack has been continuous for years and I18n team has become an official team for the latest four cycles, using translation contribution tools with useful tips has not been shared with globalized people relatively too much. Speakers hope that more people who are interested in translation contribution will come here and more translators who are geographically distributed so unable to come to Summit will see the workshop video content and materials which will be available after the Summit.
