Follow these steps to start translating our website. For finer details, check out the existing por-BR translation. We will call your language code xxx, though if there are dialects that are substantially different, use xxx-YY, where xxx is the three-letter ISO 639-3 code, and YY is the ISO 3166-2 code for the country in which the dialect is spoken.

  1. Sign in (Preferrably with ~vern, if you have an account, but Codeberg OAuth2 is fine)
  2. Fork this repo
  3. Copy eng/ to xxx/
  4. Remove xxx/translations.php
  5. Translate! (but not xxx/tos.html, xxx/privpol.html, xxx/p/list.php, or anything that isn't shown to the user (e.g. E-mails sent to admins))
  6. Create xxx/tl-notice.html that contains the following text, but translate it into your language:
<h1>Translation notice</h1>
<p>The following document is written in english because of ~vern's geographical jurisdiction. Taking into account that all our servers are in the USA or Canada, the following text couldn't be translated. Currently, our translators can't find a viable way of translating the document whilst keeping the same legal meaning. If you have any suggestions, contact an <a href="/xxx/admins">admin</a>.</p>
<p>With this stance, here's the original document, in English:</p>
  1. Add the following text in tos.html and privpol.html directly under the nav.php include.
<!--#include file="tl-notice.html" -->
  1. Add your language to eng/translations.php
  2. Create a pull request
