Translating Arch Linux website to Dutch

Hello everybody,

I love Arch and I want to show it. Therefore, I want to translate the Arch Linux website (and maybe Pacman messages too, becuase not all Pacman messages are translated to Dutch and that looks bad) to Dutch. At school I have teachers for German French and I know somebody who can speak Frisian. I can ask them too if they would help me. To who can I send translated texts?

Kind regards,

Megameneer

I didn't want to translate the wiki, but the website

Re: Translating Arch Linux website to Dutch

It might be a stupid question, but why translate the main website to Dutch? I think most dutch users will have no problem at all with the english language. As for Frisian, I think that there would be no benefit in translating to Frisian. I mean, there is only a small minority in the Netherlands (and the world for that matter) that speaks it and they are perfectly able to read and speak Dutch as well.

I personally think that translating the wiki is more useful than translating the main website, as people get more information from the wiki than the main website. If you really want to translate the website, you'll have to set up and host a dutch website yourself. The sources for the main website should be available. You can look at the french and german communities for ideas.

Translating pacman to Dutch wouldn't be a bad idea, but you should make that in a separate thread so more people can see it and can point you in the right direction (I wouldn't know where to start).

There already is a Dutch translation https://www.transifex.com/projects/p/ar … nguage/nl/ but it's not complete.

I have made an account on Transifex and made a join request on the Dutch team of pacman.
