114 - French Installation Manual

Postby netantho » Sun Dec 02, 2007 12:49 pm

So, I repost that here to have a cleaner topic  ;D.

Hello,

I'm Anthony, 16 years old. I live in France, I participate in a local LUG called CLX (fr).
I have already translated open source softwares : in LaunchPad, Outgun's server list and maybe I have forgotten some others.

So, I have claimed the task for French translation.

First, I think that I have found some minor errors in this page : Minimum System Requirements :
- At the end of the first "stop" paragraph, there is not dot at the end of the sentence.
- "Apple Mac OSX" should be "Apple Mac OS X".

Here is the translation of the Minimum System Requirements page, I have done it with KompoZer, please let me know if it's OK and if I have translated all that was required.
I'll try to find someone to review it.

Do I have to translate the word "templates" or not ?

Thank you, I'm working on others pages.

Anthony,

By all means fix any grammar, I will ask about the word templates but you could also ask on the translation forum.
So we must fix our vision not merely on the negative expulsion of war, but upon the positive affirmation of peace. MLK 1964.

It looks BEAUTIFUL!

What is so cool is knowing how hard Humvee worked to document all of these facts and details needed to get Joomla! properly configured in many environments. And now, you are making his work available to French speaking people.  8)

Thanks for your contributions!

Thank you very much  :)


I'm now working on the Web Browser Installation pages, I'll make screenshots. Do you have to make screenshots with exactly the same width and height ?


Thank you.
