Amarok & Translations

First, some of you might know we are using a new mediawiki extension at Userbase, namely the Translate extension by the translatewiki folks.
It is an awesome extension making us able to translate content on- and offline via po files. Those guys are really helpful with any issue we encounter and they deserve a hug whenever you meet them ๐Ÿ˜‰

Now, Mamarok and Valoriez of Amarok fame stepped up and wrote a very nice Quickstart guide for Amarok on Userbase. And in my opinion, this is a good time to take our new extension to its limits.
The guide is now marked for translation and everybody could step up and translate it to his/her native language. You only need to have a registered account at userbase and add yourself onย http://userbase.kde.org/Translator_Account
Then you can be added to translators and start your work.


The reason i write this is simple. Have as many translations as possible. KDE itself has now translations for nearly 100 languages (if i didn’t count wrong). And having those for userbase, too, would be just plain awesome. Or do you know any other wiki with so many languages? If so, please tell me.
Another reason is, you could give me a hard time ๐Ÿ˜›
Notice the language bar above every article. Not that bad with a handful of languages. But consider it a box with links to a hundred and more languages… I would need to find a better way to display the language list. And as there is a new theme about to come it makes sense to fix it before ๐Ÿ˜‰


So, put some stress on me and translate as much as you can from this quickstart guide. For guidelines you can see the sidebar links on Userbase or ask us on #kde-www (freenode).
