Hello PirateBox-People,

during the last weeks I got multiple requests for a language specific subforum. I still have some fear, that this will split up the tiny community. On the other hand it is better to have all people here in the discussion board instead of being spread across multiple pages.

Today, I created a French and a Spanish subforum. We are looking for a moderator who takes care about one forum.

This is an experiment and we will discuss how useful this segment is at the end of October.

Best regards

This is only my signature.

Hello, that is a nice idea, you already know what i've done and still doing (very slow). I could moderate french if you want, I am living in paris, but unfortunally my big wired librarybox is too high for public smiling smiley
But first, you should know that Google Translate is very very bad at translating french (seriously) so here's my translation:

C'est un simple sous forum pour la communauté française. Le support n'est apporté que par des personnes francophones, mais devrait être un refuge pour ceux qui ne parlent pas anglais.

Here's your auto translation:
Il est un seul subforum pour la communauté française. Le soutien est seulement donnée par les francophones, mais devrait être un refuge pour les haut-parleurs non-anglais.

And the english version:
It is a single subforum for the french community. Support is only given by French speakers, but should be a haven for non-english speaker.

Any help is appreciated!

best regards

Hi Matthias.

As much as I'm big fan of this forum and IRC (better!), I can help translating to Turkish. I'm not an expert on GNU, OpenWrt or PirateBox but I can - at least - try to help people in Turkish.

To be fair, most of people got involved with PirateBox from Turkiye, would know English. But still, if you guys need any help, I'd be glad to help you.

Let's put a link here for people who searched for a Turkish guide:

Please delete this link if it's against the rules. "OpenWrt ile PirateBox Yapımı - Türkçe Anlatım" []

thanks for the offer for moderating a Turkish subforum. Based on the experience down in the other subforums (no activity), I would not open a new subforum at this point in time.

The project appreciates any help. I try to avoid to create the howto in different languages, because I can not guarantee that these are recent. If you want to give us support anyway, it would be helpful to

- Test development builds
- Adjust/Fix PirateBox translation on the software
- Transfer stuff from the forum to the wiki and give help in the forum based on documentation in wiki/forum.
- And of course supply coding support :-)

best regards Matthias
