Does Golang need a French translation?


(Erwan Roussel) #1

I am actually learning go with https://golangbot.com/learn-golang-series/ & https://gobyexample.com/

And I never saw a french documentation. So that’s why I wanted to ask this question.
If yes I would like to help.

Both sites are unofficial by third parties. At least https://gobyexample.com/ uses a Creative Commons licenses which allows you to translate it or create other derived works of it. Just ask the authors if translations are welcome.

But we can’t translate the official documentation ?


(Lutz Horn) #4

The documentation is either static or generated from source files. All this documentation is written in English. I am not aware of any official way to translate these files into a different language. But as Go all documentation is BSD licensed. So you are free to translate it.

So I can translate it and publish it ? On my own GitHub account ?

I’d say yes. But take a look at https://developers.google.com/terms/site-policies#restrictions which is liked at the bottom of every page on https://golang.org/.
