Translating wikis, online tools and handbook, what does it involve?

If there is no translation of the #tagcoding handbook in your native language, and if you feel confident that you can dedicate several weeks, even months, in translating one of the current versions of the handbook, consider this:

  • there is a book to translate, Leanpub is the recommended platform, and Fair Glocal Publishing describes options regarding the sharing of royalties; the author of the original version will support you along the process such that your focus can be on the translation;
  • it is recommended that alongside the translation of the #handbook in any language, you also create at a mono-lingual xy2wiki in the language "xy" in which you wish to translate the handbook; currently such wikis are easily created on the wikidot.com wiki-farm. #tag2wiki teams provides more details on the skills you will need to create and edit such a wiki and the support Wikinetix can give you; The wiki should include all the online supports for finding the #tagcoding hashtag for several topic dimensions, as described in the handbook. Screenshots from the wiki will be used in the handbook.
  • Many figures in the #tagcoding handbook have been created using Archi, an Open Source ArchiMate Modelling tool; the (Archimate) model with all the figure "views" will be available for translation using Archi. We recommend that you install Archi on your personal computer and get somewhat acquainted with it.
