We’re piloting a hot new feature in our Drupal Novell Communities: translation done by the community. We have a tool that will enable community members with translation skills to translate any article in Cool Solutions.
The interface where you do the translating is pretty slick — it lets you work sentence by sentence, and offers machine translation and other tools to give you a jump start.
The translations will be vetted by other community members to make sure the translations are accurate. Once a translation achieves our quality threshold, it gets published (associated with the original article).
It’s exciting technology, being used on Drupal sites of many kinds.
We are planning to create a Translation Club for our community members who are interested in (and have the skills for) translating Community content.
If you would like to join the Translation Club and try your hand at translating Cool Solutions articles, fill out this survey and let us know what your skills are.
Disclaimer: As with everything else at NetIQ Cool Solutions, this content is definitely not supported by NetIQ, so Customer Support will not be able to help you if it has any adverse effect on your environment. It just worked for at least one person, and perhaps it will be useful for you too. Be sure to test in a non-production environment.
