Postby helly90 » Thu Jan 24, 2008 9:46 pm

I claimed this task:

Translate part of the Installation Manual to a non-English Language
==Description==

The Joomla! help site provides an Installation Manual in English.

http://help.joomla.org/content/category/48/268/302/

http://downloads.joomlacode.org/docmanf ... on_0.5.pdf

For this task you will translate (at a minimum) part of this manual into a
non-English language. Specifically, you should work first on these four
sections:

Minimum System Requirements http://help.joomla.org/content/view/1938/302/

Final Preparation http://help.joomla.org/content/view/1941/302/

Installation http://help.joomla.org/content/view/1943/302/

Web Browser Installation http://help.joomla.org/content/view/1947/302/


NOTE: When claiming this task, specify which language you will be
translating into. Be as specific as possible, especially if your language
has local versions.

*Prior to claiming this task, please review the other copies of it to
ensure that you are not doing the same translation as another participant.*

Additional resources:

You may want to visit the sites of the Joomla! translation partner for your
language. http://dev.joomla.org/content/view/42/66/

for your language. These are found in the "International Zone" of the
joomla.org forums.

Before submitting the final files, you should have at least one person who
is a fluent reader of your language review your files.

Helena -

Thank you so much for your contribution to the Joomla! community.

I just notified Karol Cejka, Joomla!'s Slovak Translation Working Group Member that you completed this guide and share a copy with him.

We accepted this task as complete. It is great that you made available an Installation Guide in the Slovenian language so more people can use Joomla! v 1.5.

Thank you,
Amy :)

Helena -

I heard back from Karol, who was very kind. He gave me a quick geography lesson and helped me see that I had committed a horrible mistake. I apologize deeply that I mistook Slovenia for Slovakia. You can tell I am from Nebraska, tucked away in the middle of the United States.  :-[

Now, in looking at Slovenia's Wikipedia page, I must say, you have a very beautiful country! I would very much like to see Bled Lake. That's only one example of many beautiful parts, the Alps and the Mediterranean, fabulous country! Beautiful!

I do not believe Slovenia has a Translation Working Group member. Perhaps you might consider participating?

Again, I thank you sincerely for your contributions.
Amy :)
