Hi,

I recently noticed that a new page at http://docs.moodle.org/27/en/MoodleDocs:Overview has links to Moodle documentation pages in 11 languages besides English smile , while the Main page of Moodle documentation at http://docs.moodle.org/27/en/Main_page has links for translations  for only 6 languages sad.

As the Main page of Moodle documentation at http://docs.moodle.org/27/en/Main_page is a protected page, very few people can edit it, but it is used by many Moodlers in need of support.

Would it be worth adding links to  their translations at http://docs.moodle.org/27/en/Main_page for the following languages ?

  • Català (Catalan)
  • Íslenska (Icelandic)
  • Português Brasileiro (Brazilan Portuguese)
  • Suomi (Finnish)
  • 中文 (Chinese)

I reckon that an ideal solution might be for the current documentation writers for those languages to indicate the best page to be linked, but a fast fix might be to add a link to the page for the most recent documentation listed in http://docs.moodle.org/27/en/MoodleDocs:Overview, which most likely would have links  to other available documentation pages in that particular language.

What would other language docs translators/writers/users  think about this ?

Hi German,

Thanks for your suggestion to add more language links to http://docs.moodle.org/. I have added all the languages you list, except for Brazilan Portuguese, which didn't work (needs investigating).

For inter-language links to appear in the 'In other languages' block, they have to be of the format [[es:Página Principal]], thus for languages with more than one wiki, only the most recent wiki be linked to, which I think makes sense.
