ArchWiki Translation Day
Arch Translation Day is an international day dedicated to translating our ArchWiki. The goal of this action is connection of arch-users and translate as much pages as possible to our native languages. It should support our community and allows those, who does not speak English very well learn easier about Arch.
Arch Translation Day will take place the first Saturday of every month - day before the Bug Squashing Day.
Everyone who wants to support our community somehow or wants to express his thanks for ArchLinux, is invited.
Are you asking why? Because we all use Arch and we like it. We use it on our desktops and servers. We have it near at hand almost all the tim. This is the one way to thank that we can use it. We should definitely allow access to all pieces of information for whom the language is a barrier.
