Dear wiki administrator

I would like to translate the english manual page into japanese
with some friends in Japan.

So could you give the edit permission of wiki to users as listed below?

Hi
Okay, you guys have edit rights now.
Someone has already started working on a japanese translation in the past ( http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/f ... elp_Toc/jp ) but that's quite some time ago, you might need to review that, probably much of the english content has changed since then, and you might need to do some update... But at least all the templates are created already. Thanks for the help anyway, have fun, and if you have any doubts, just post here!

In case you are interested, you can also translate FreeCAD itself on japanese - it is currently 55% done:

Hi!

@ Yorik

Dear forum administrator,

Although our Japanese translation team are going to translate manual and FreeCAD itself into Japanese,
I think Japanese FreeCAD user will increase rapidly if forum in Japanese exists on this board
because many ordinary Japanese users including me are not good at reading and writing English.

So if creating forum in Japanese is not so tough for you,
could you please take it into consideration for a while?

Thanks in advance,
Masashi

Creating a Japanese sub-forum is no problem. Just let us know how you translate "Forum in Japanese" into Japanese.

According to Google Translate it's

日本語フォーラム

But these translating engines are notoriously bad between western languages, I'll bet it's even worse for western <--> eastern translation. :)

Hi All!

@ wmayer

Thank you so much for cooperation!

"Forum in Japanese" would be "日本語フォーラム" in Japanese.

@ normandc

Thank you for googling!
Google translation is bingo for this ;)
