i thought about asking for best practise / prior art on multilingual
Guides. the thing is i am not worried about having translations, and i
would sort of rather have any language that people feel like writing
in, squashed onto one page, than separate stuff out, in a way which
might make different language communities feel unwelcome or lapse into
I don't think anyone's actually done much of that so far but having
multiple languages "organically" in one guide is an interesting one that
I think could be explored.
i could do quite a lot with silly icons, and
categories can have names in
any language, that's fine, and i'm not worried about knowing what
language category names are in - people will understand or not understand
- and one day we can do some magic with http://omegawiki.org
if we like.
how is the OG collective hosting situation? it would rock my world if
i could park this somewhere i would not be subsequently responsible
for breaking and upgrading ;)
I'd be happy to host this for you. Drop me a private mail if you'd like
to go ahead.
