Subject: Translators wanted!
Do you speak a language different from English? Then maybe you can help to make DokuWiki even better! Please have a look at the status of your language at http://translate.dokuwiki.org. Is your language not at 100%, yet? Then hit the update button and translate a few strings.

You can help to make DokuWiki the best localized Wiki!

Any particular reasons to ressurect an almost 2 years old thread ;-)?
Please add [SOLVED] to the initial thread subject if you feel your question has been answered.
If my answer doesn't make sense maybe your question didn't either - just visit http://facepalm.org.

Any automated translation program is going to be very rough.  It cannot always guess the entire context... especially so with technical writing. I would always want translations to be made by a native speaker of the language.

There's a significant sized translation community built around the SpeedBit DAP software tools. They are already using DokuWiki as a collaboration tool for translating their own software into multiple languages.

There are several languages that are complete for DAP which are hardly started for DokuWiki. Is there a way for us to harness some of those volunteers to help here, especially for languages that are now complete over there?

Their start page can be seen at:  http://wiki.speedbit.com/doku.php?do=index

I tried to translate a few missing Finnish strings, but the download automatically fails in Firefox. Then when I retry by hitting button in the download window, I do get a file but my archive application tells it is password protected when I try to open it.

The tool should work fine in Firefox. Just send the file anyway. Might be that I can extract it even if your tool can't.

I checked the file in a hex editor and it is a HTML page, containing the index page of the translator tool.
