Hallo,

wir bitten alle odoo Partner / erfahrene Anwender aus der Community an den Übersetzungen für die V8 in Deutsch mitzuarbeiten. Der Umfang ist erheblich. 

Um die Arbeit zu koordinieren und somit möglichst schnell über eine V8 in Deutsch zu verfügen, habe ich folgende Arbeitsliste erstellt. M.E. ist es sinnvoll die Arbeit in fachliche Arbeitsgruppen (5 Gruppen) aufzuteilen und auch nach Priorität (absteigende Priorität 1-3) zu übersetzen. 


Es wäre schön, wenn sich hier die freiwilligen Übersetzer melden könnten:


Bitte im Orange markierten Bereich Eure Namen eintragen.

Folgend die weiteren wichtigen Hinweise und Erläuterungen, die Olivier Dony für Übersetzer zusammen getragen hat.


How to translate
----------------
In order to preserve the current translation teams and the translation memory, the 8.0 translation will still be managed on Launchpad, as explained in the Github transition wiki page [2].
For this purpose a new 8.0 series has been added on Launchpad, and will *only* be used for translations (no source code). It is now the default focus for translations.
Here are the direct links for translating:
- addons: https://translations.launchpad.net/openobject-addons
- server: https://translations.launchpad.net/openobject-server
- web: https://translations.launchpad.net/openerp-web
(Do not forget to click "View all languages" at the bottom of the list)
To new translators: do not hesitate to make translations suggestions (anyone can do it on any language) and to ask for joining existing translation teams! (See References below for the list of teams)
Note: on Launchpad the modules are still split in 3 projects to preserve the existing translations from v7.
Reminder: regional languages (e.g. fr_BE or nl_BE) must not be translated like normal languages. Within Odoo they automatically contain the main language they are based on (e.g. fr_FR or nl_NL), so they should only translate the differences! It is normal that they appear as 0% translated in Launchpad.

Synchronization
---------------
The new translations will be exported every day by Launchpad, but will only be synchronized back to GitHub every week or so - don't panic if you cannot see your translations in GitHub every day!
During synchronization the translations are of course merged back into a single project branch.

As usual, do not worry if you have not completed 100% of the translations in time for the release: updated translations will be included in the new installation packages every day, even after the release.
You can therefore focus on the most important parts first.

For the next release we will definitely have better tools for translators, let's just use the current tools one last time :-)


       Thank you all for making Odoo a unique and global project!
