What is it?

This is a plugin that allows "crowdsourcing" the translation of Geeklog, i.e. once installed, it allows users to contribute translations of Geeklog's user interface texts for other languages.

This is a being developed by Benjamin Talic as a project during the Google Summer of Code 2013.

Design Decisions

  • Any logged-in user should be able to contribute a translation
  • Ideally, the plugin should also allow translations of plugins (bundled and 3rd party). We'll start with core texts but try to keep things generic, adding plugin support later when possible.

To Be Decided

  • Should users be able to freely create new languages? Or do we need some sort of approval process?
