Translation Contribution Guide

Welcome#

As of today, Taichi is used by people from all over the world, and we always hope that Taichi can bring graphics programming to everyone, so one of the most important tasks is to make sure people can read Taichi documentation in their preferred natural languages, i.e. i18n (internationalization).

You may have noticed that this Taichi documentation website is built and maintained by core developers and the Taichi community together, and when it comes to i18n, we really need and appreciate all kinds of help from the community, include but not limited to:

  • Translate a page, section or even a few sentences to your preferred language.
  • Proofread other translations and fix translation issues in your preferred language.
  • Drive or lead a specific language's translation progress.
  • ...

How to contribute?#

In order to make the i18n collaboration more efficient, we have adopted Crowdin as the localization management platform for Taichi, which has helped a lot of open source projects and games to streamline their localization efforts.

tip

Please visit Crowdin's knowledge base whenever you have questions about the detailed translation workflow, or how to use Crowdin's online editor.

In order to get started, please visit Taichi's Crowdin page:

  • If you see an existing target language that you'd like to contribute, feel free to go ahead by clicking into the language and add your translation strings. Usually, translators with proofread access would proofread your translations and approve them as soon as possible!
  • If you don't see your preferred target language, or you have some questions related to its content, or you’d like to be promoted to a proofreader role, please click the Contact link to reach out to the project managers on the right side of the page.

Right now, translations of Taichi will show up automatically when we sync the content from main repo to the docs repo, please feel free to contact us (create issues in the main repo) at anytime if you don't see your contribution show up after more than 24 hours, or if the translation managers don't respond to you on Crowdin.
