Hi everyone ;-)

I will start translating the wiki of Blag from English to French in the next days and onward.
Basically the simple way of going about this is:
Utilizing Textise :
To convert each wiki-page into Text.Many Online translators exist and give rather variable results,
Unfortunately Google Translate gives better overall results.
Modifications after translation are needed.
(right terms,nuances.. ect..)
But mostly the result is surprisingly good and that saves quite a lot of work.
Textise also enables "save page as pdf"making a base document.
1/ convert all pages of the wiki ""as_is"" in pdf
2/translate+do corrections into Abiword
3/label them
@quite a few links on  pages will have to be checked & labeled obsolete or still active.
4/screen-shots of the wiki-pages might be needed in order to "remember"the  Initial-Page-Layout.

All the best to you all!
