A) Please do not change symbols on indexes!
Admins will take care of that, and keep the symbols in line with articles, as soon as they can.
However, you can use especially the English index
to open each article discussion topic.
Then start writing a new translation as a new comment on opened article. You can use the article in English as a draft. Go to English version, click "Edit", and copy all the contents. Be careful not to change the English original!
Then paste the copied text as a new comment. How you proceed with translation is up to you. You can either copy each paragraph separately, or copy all, and then make a quick translation on DeepL
Make sure you use the same ipernity user interface phrases as there are used around ipernity. For example English title "Who sees what about you?" on "Profile and privacy" settings page becomes translated to "Wie kan wat van jou zien?" in Dutch.
Notice also the image "Alt" texts inside image codes. Try to find a proper translation also for those.
B) When you are working with articles, please identify the status of article on discussion topic, like this:
Use especially these symbols:
☒ Work in progress, an article is under construction at work group.
☑ Completed. You have done with editing, checked the user interface titles are in line with what is used around ipernity, and done with the proof reading.
The editor (admins) considers it can be copied to FAQ account.
You can also add a link to article, or leave that for group admins (Rob & Sami).
Once you have marked the article completed (☑), then the admins know the article has been finalized, proof reading is done, and then article can be copied to FAQ account. When the copying is done, the admins will change the status to some of these:
▣ It is now in FAQ account.
◙ Moved to FAQ account, but updates required later.
C) Guidelines if new images needed
- On images, use red oval or rectangle instead of free hand to point out something.
- Avoid adding any phase numbers or arrows on images if possible. Arrows and phase order indicator is necessary only if it matters, Like A before B.
- Publish images under Creative Commons or free. Those who copy paste the contents to final FAQ, also need to copy the images to FAQ account.
