Many languages still don't have 3.1.x translation packages

Post by colnector » Wed Nov 18, 2015 8:42 am

Going today through all the language packs, seems only ~30 of them have versions for the 3.1.x version.
Not all of them are updated to the latest 3.1.6 released about 2 months ago.

Who's the person in charge of being in touch with the translation teams to encourage and help them get updated versions once a new version is released?

Sent a PM.
Our community has many people who volunteer to translate so perhaps they could help as well.

imo, all official translators (teams) who failed to translate phpBB (up) to (at least) 3.1.0 version should be replaced at once with new volunteers.
why? gold release of phpBB 3.1 ascraeus was released on october 28th 2014, more than a year ago, [betas and rcs were released half (&+) year earlier], so they had, more than, plenty of time to update old translations or make new ones.
those who made up to 3.1.0 but failed to update translations to last release (two months old now) should be offered deadline to do it or help with it. failure should result same as mentioned above.

The key word in that statement is volunteers. The whole of phpBB relies on volunteers which in some ways is one of its strengths but also one of its weaknesses. You cannot make volunteers do anything - believe me I have spent most of my life being in the charity/volunteer arena.

Who are you going to replace these "non performing" volunteers with? - they are not exactly falling out of the sky. You are better off having a volunteer who may do something, or be persuaded to do something, than no volunteer at all.

I agree. I believe the translations part of phpBB never got sufficient attention and that's evident from seeing the long delays and at times the quality of work where not all language packs have everything translated.

If you are interested in helping, you can apply to become a member of your language's translation team. The more that can help, the better.

Visited the link and seems very neglected.
The link to the downloading the British English original refers to v3.0.12
The link there is to the old form rather than the new.

Who is in charge?

Pushing this up again. Can anyone please update on current status? Is there anyone really responsible over the entire translations operation of phpBB?

There is a system in place to notify translators of updates. If they don't have time to service their translations anymore, I guess there's nothing that the team can do, unless we get some new volunteers.
