How to start a new translation project of The Swift Programming Language manual.


(Francesco Vino) #1

Hi,

I’m an italian computer science teacher and I’d like to start the translation in italian language of The Swift Programming Language.
How can I do it? Is already there an italian translation on?

Thank you for any help.

Hi Francesco --

You can use the English version of "The Swift Programming Language" as a source for your translation. It's published here:

  https://swift.org/documentation/#the-swift-programming-language

If you save a copy of the ePub locally, then when the book is updated, you can download the new ePub version and compare the files to see what changed. (For example, using a tool like diff or FileMerge.) That will tell you what new content needs to be translated.

You can look at how the Chinese translation was done here (although most of the discussion is in Chinese also):

This past swift-dev thread might also be helpful:
