Description bluedwarf 2004-12-17 10:10:55 UTC
I'm sorry, I don't know which project is the most appropriate to handle this
issue so I attach this issue to native-lang in the meanwhile. Please change
project field if necessary.

Over 3-years has passed sience the first was released. There has
been, however, no movement to translate comments in source codes from German to
English yet. This problem increase hacking time for non-German programmers and
decrease the number of patches from them.

So I suggest all German programmers and volunteers translating them into
English. How did you like it?

reassign issue to the right project. thanks for submitting.

Translating old comments is already in progress. Slow progress.

Working only on translation is not an option.

I am reopening this issue because I am trying to learn my way around the AOO source code, and it would help if I could read the comments. Rather than leaving it as a general translation project, I proposed using comments on this issue to identify specific files with German commments that a developer who does not read German is studying.

I suggest that developers who are able and willing to do comment translations add themselves to the CC list. When they have a few spare minutes to spend on this, select a requested file, do the translation for that file, and check it back in.
