I want to help to translate the site text. But it does not seem to work at all.

When I click on french, I get the list with the page name, unchecked and untranslated strings and strings up for vote. But when I click on one of the number, to vote or to translate, the next page shows me only three empty boxes with english word or phrase, translation french and contributors.

I tried for dutch, where for i.e.\"common\" there are still 2 untranslated strings of 1023, the next page shows me a list with: 1 of 1023, 2 0f 1023 etc... Am I supposed to browse all the 1000+ terms to find the ones needing translation?

And if I click on \"strings up for vote=38\" it does not work at all. I get the same three empty boxes as in french.

And what does mean these yellow boxes I find in the middle of the regular ones?

Site localisation is effectively on hold Aug 21, 2003

Hi Lien and Mariana,
Thanks for your commitment. However, following some major problems with localised versions of the old design, this has effectively been put on hold (see Jason's posting dated 10MAY2003 in this thread).

Thanks for your patience.

Best regards, Ralf
