TRANSLATORS HEADS UP: translation for Moodle 2.0 is there!
Group Core developersGroup Documentation writersGroup Moodle HQGroup Particularly helpful MoodlersGroup Plugin developersGroup Translators
As announced previously, the translation process for moodle 2.0 is heavely modified.
There where several reasons to do that. Read http://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=118707, if you are interested in the long history smile

David Mudrak took on the job to create and implement the new workflow and tools (specs on http://docs.moodle.org/en/Development:Languages/AMOS) to solve the needs.

Today the Moodle translation site went live. The site is located at http://lang.moodle.org and is for now meant for language pack maintainers. The documentation is on http://docs.moodle.org/Translation_2.0.

For short:

You are not a language pack maintainer (see http://docs.moodle.org/en/Translation_credits): don't do anything yet smile
You are one:
* create an account on http://lang.moodle.org
* send an email to translation@moodle.org, saying that you created an account
* onces your account is configured to make translations, announced by an email, you will be able to start translation on Moodle 2.0
You want to become one: send an email to your language pack maintainer (see http://docs.moodle.org/en/Translation_credits) and ask him/her to send a request to translation@moodle.org.

Workflow:
* Use the Translator filter to show strings you want to work on
* Translate missing strings and/or update the translation
* The translated strings are put into a temporary area called stage
* The stage is destroyed when you logout. You have to explicitly commit the stage so it is saved permanently!
* Language packages are generated every hour and published at http://download.moodle.org/langpack/2.0/ , with nice completion graphs calculated

I see that English/US is not yet complete and that it's maintained by Moodle developers. Is there a way to help? I'd be willing to lend a hand and would be interested in learning the process.

Hi Joseph,

The language pack en_us has en as a parent (see Language packs for more information) so it's a mistake for it to be listed as 0% complete.

Thanks though for your offer of help. Suggested improvements to the en language pack are always welcome. smile Please create an issue in the Moodle Tracker, like MDL-22972 or MDL-22972.

Got it, thanks for the clarification. There might be a few in the En_us I know about (enrolment is one) so I'll poke around and see if I can't help a little.
