[ANN] es-docs in German


(konrad) #1

Dear list,

in behalf of the Mainz/Germany based brainbot technologies ag I would like
to announce that the elasticsearch documentation is now available…
in German:
http://brainbot.com/esdoc-de/

As a service for the ever growing group of German elasticsearch users
we have, over the course of several weeks, dug through the docs/reference/
part of the documentation and created a German version of it.

To our knowledge, this is the only translation covering a larger part of
the documentation. During the translation, we tried to stay close enough
to the English original to retain patchability, and yet made sure to
produce a pleasant to read text in valid German.

Please let us know, what you think of the result!

"Grüße" from Mainz
-- Konrad

Dear Konrad,

first of all, thanks for the contribution - I just glanced over it.

I think it is most welcome to have a german translation, so german users
can find easy access to Elasticsearch.

Because I know the hard work of good translations, you have my admiration.

Maybe you are aware of it, there are some passages still in english, e.g.
http://brainbot.com/esdoc-de/index-modules.html "field data formats"

Have you the permission of the original authors (at the Elasticsearch
company) for your work becoming an official translation? I think this is
important to make clear, because it could be possible that it becomes
worthy to publish an Elasticsearch manual in german language.

Until the state of the translation is not clear, I rather do not dare to
ask if I can reuse the translation, for instance, to update it to 1.0, or
to illustrate recipes or blog entries or other educational material...

Best greetings from Köln

Jörg

Hi Jörg,
thanks for your response! Well done, spotting a patching leftover on
first glance I hope this is fixed now.

About becoming an "official" translation: We have not thought about that
so far. Since...

  1. we were not aware of any "official" efforts to create translations of the documentation
    (see e.g. [1] and some defunct doc-forks for chinese IIRC).
  2. we just happened to have the resources to create something of potential value for the community.

For now, feel free to link to it if you are satisfied with the
quality!

By the way: We do have plans to patch it up to 1.0, but since the docs
are always evolving we needed to get it out there

Are you (or anyone else) aware of any official plans for translating the documentation?

Cheers,
Konrad
