Translator

Translate into my language

Translate the site

  • Transifex is a simple translation tool for language files of platforms. To help us, join the group that corresponds to the language that you speak on Transifex. Here is a video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1XAa9CsAav4.
    There are 5 resources : I4p_base / Member / Partner / Project_sheet / workgroup. Each resources is a part of I4P.
    For example, the resource "Project Sheet" corresponds to all the sentences on the project sheet (see an example of a project here).
    Once the translation is realized to 100%, the development team will share the new translations.
    If you wish to have access to the translations that are finished (to look them over, for example), click on "Translate now"  (see image here) and click the box "translated".
    To do this, find the pages that need translating and ask for access to the statistics pages of the site from  Simon ou Sylvain
