"traduc": A French abbreviation for "translation" (literally ‘'traduction’ in French)..
Traduc.org is a French organization bringing together volunteers, translators and all those keen on free software. It was registered as a "Loi 1901" (NPO) organization in 1992 (Traduc.org current board members).
At the time, its scope was limited to a project aiming to translate HOWTOs from the Linux Documentation Project. Subsequently, Traduc.org expanded and is currently managing numerous projects and hosting some others:
The BRLTTY documentation translation
The Linux Gazette translation
The French portion of the Gnome Translation Project
The Advanced Bash Scripting HOWTO translation
The Linux From Scratch project translation
The Linux man pages translation
The kernel.org's Linux man pages translation
The Glossary of English translation terms
Translation of Emacs
The GCC's PIC library translation
The translation of LPI Certification exam preparation courses
Are you a developer/author and need some help ?
- If you are a free software developer or the author of a free document and need French translation (for your documentation or software itself), tell us about your project. Many translators have subscribed to our mailing-lists so they will have a look at it. Traduc.org may even get involved if volunteers are available.
