XOOPS and internationalization - How can I help?

Dear friends,
For years I'm using CMSs in my work and since the beginning XOOPS is my favorite.
Here in Brasil the situation of XOOPS is not very comfortable, there are several abandoned sites, outdated, careless and causing confusion and bad impression on the XOOPS users. Recently we lost our only stronghold of translation of the modules and the Core with the closing of www.XOOPS.org (for personal reasons of the administrator).
I do not think the communities who speak Portuguese deserve to be deprived of using the XOOPS in their native language, but instead of starting another domain asking for volunteers to translate, I would suggest here that the translations in xoops.org should be centralized.
I'm a member of the Fedora Project for many years, including the translation team, and from experience I see that a centralized system of translation works very well.
What I think is the following:
* xoops.org gathers and provides the modules using a version control system.
* Translation teams may have access to all modules in one place, translate them and send back (always in UTF-8) the folder language
* xoops.org adds the translations to the module.
I step up to ask for volunteers to the translation team to Portuguese, and at last, I think much easier if in the future XOOPS adopt the pot files to facilitate internationalization.

Regards

Mikhail

Re: XOOPS and internationalization - How can I help?

Hi! I contacted Onokazu (the xoops.org owner) to restore the good and old XOOPS Brasil domain, BR.XOOPS.ORG, 'deleted' by the old XOOPS Foundation:

Contact phppp about this issue and if possible have him redirect www.xoops.net.br over
to your site.

Now I'm waiting an answer from PHPPP (the xoops.org webmaster).

The idea is support XOOPS Cube and XOOPS Sphere, like www.xoopscube.jp

Re: XOOPS and internationalization - How can I help?

Well, I'll be glad to help. It will be good to have one good website about XOOPS in Brasil instead of dozens of poor ones.
About the translation teams, don't you think that will be good, for example, if XOOPS already came with translations here, in XOOPS.ORG? And the same, at least, with all the most popular modules?

@ lonely

Isn't this forum visible to you?

Also, you should repeat your ideas on the xoopsinternational google group:

I looked at the forums with a bit of hurry and missed that. Sorry.
I signed up for group.
