Re: [CentOS-docs] Arabic wiki pages

Well, for now I stand alone to be honest, but I have hopes.

As for coping with new content, my primary focus will be to convert what is there already and then tackle the new.  In many cases, like this ( http://wiki.centos.org/TipsAndTricks/CDtoDVDMedia ), there's not much to do except for the first paragraph and probably a few addition comments to be inserted as explanatory notes, but otherwise a bash script is a bash script.  

My question now is how often does current content change?

One another thing, I wasn't planning in going back historically to change all that, I was considering starting from version 6 onwards.

I will be asking around to see if there are others in the local LUG that would be willing to join in this endeavor.  

Well, the net is pretty much unicode ready these days :)  I'd have to literally flip everything and that is usually not much of a hassle for a template.  If the page is html standards compliant, and I'm certain it is, then in the html tag, what is needed is "dir=rtl" and voila.  Check this:  http://www.w3.org/International/tutorials/bidi-xhtml/

I'll ask you the same things that I ask everyone going for a
translation: Are you alone or are there a few more people doing the
translation? Do you think you can keep up with a) the existing content
and b) changing wiki pages?

I ask that, because most attempts to add a language to the wiki ended
pretty soon, after a few articles were translated.

That is nothing personal, but just a question coming out of that
experience, I personally think it is great, that you want to do
something like that.

I haven't the faintest idea what has to be done to support that :)
