Re: [opensuse-doc] French translation for openSUSE Doc
Hi Guillaume,

How do you translate xml files and update them ? Copy XML from english and
then edit directly in XML ? If so, how do you deal with updates ?

In principle, yes.
Updates are tricky. We don't have any other system apart form POT/PO. So
currently, it's up to the translators to use tools which best fit to their
workflow. However, I'm not really involved into translation, probably Karl can
say more about that topic.

Can you create a french sub-directory on the server and give me write
access so that I can update the files ?

Sure, however I would wait a little bit more. The problem is that BerliOS will
be closed next month. Currently we are testing and migrating our SVN to a new
home. We will make an announcement soon, hopefully this week. After that, you
can apply for some write permissions. :)
