Translating Swift Programming Language


(Mani Ghasemnia Hamedani) #1

Hi there,

I saw that you are ready to help and support anyone contributing to the translation of Swift Programming Language book.

I am an author in my country (Iran) and have authored/translated many books since 1999.

Now I am seriously interested to translate Swift ebook (published by Apple) to Farsi Language and then I am going to author a self-paced training kit (book accompanied by video) for Swift in English.

Regarding the translation, I am just want to know how you can support me?

Thank you for your notice and cooperation.

Best regards,

Mani Hamedani

Hi Mani,

You can use the ePub version of the book as a source for your translation:

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

We feature the known translations of the book on that page as well; you might take a look at the Chinese translation to see how its translators went about it.

When the book is updated for new versions of Swift, you can use a diffing tool like FileMerge or diff to see what's changed in detail. (ePubs hold zipped collections of XHTML files.)

Hope this helps,
Kyle

Hi Kyle,

Thank you for your notice.

I have the ePub version of the book.

Currently I am authoring a complete book in English, which not only can be used as a tutorial for starters, but also plays the role of a core reference of the language as well. It contains a lot of sample code, working programs and examples, and also exercises for the audience to make their hands dirty in a step-by-step fashion.

I will definitely translate the main language reference (the one you give me the link) to Persian (Farsi) Language as well.

I appreciate your kindness.

Best regards,
Mani
