Hi all, 
Thanks for your suggestion!
We will find a way which serves best.

Hi Dave & Gunnar,
Currently we have some Chinese guides.
How can we upload/put these files to Apache Trafodion website?

Many thanks!
Liu Yu

Subject: add a roadmap page in Trafodion's project page

Hi, all,

I suggest that Trafodion team should add a 'roadmap' page in the project's front web page,
so users will be clear what to expect in the future.
It will help decision making in some cases.

Thanks,
Ming

Hi,

The two don't conflict.

The source for documents can be in directories that mirror the English ones.
Which is a good idea because it will be easier to keep them in synch.

Links on the web pages and in documents on the other hand can go transparently across Chinese
directories. So to an end-user, it is just as you describe: Click on the Chinese link on the
main web page, then travel to a collection of Chinese pages. Similarly for the documents.

Dave

Hi Gunnar,

Appreciate you taking time to provide your details! I will do more research on them.

One question: Why add Chinese directory that corresponds with the English version rather than
create a specific section/place?

In the latter situation, Chinese (large number of users) could locate their desired information
with fastest and fewest clicks, the user experience & user usability will be improved
significantly, consequently it will contribute to the promotion of Apache Trafodion website
as well.

Thanks!
Liu Yu

Hi,

It's definitely a good idea to add a set of Chinese-language pages and user guides. Most of
the documentation and web pages are located under the docs/ directory. I propose that we keep
this simple: simply add a [document]_cn directory that corresponds with the English version.
For example, docs/sql_reference and docs/sql_reference_cn. The documents are written in asciidoctor
so I think we'll be OK there. The current PDF tool will not do good so we'll probably need
to change to asciidoctor-fopub. See http://programfan.github.io/contents/2015/04/20/convert-chinese-asciidoc-to-pdf/

The website uses markdown. From what I can see, this should work. There's even a guide: http://markdown.tw/
Here, I propose that the differnet web pages are complimented with a _cn counterpart. See
src/site/markdown/. We may have to do some css work, which I view as a good thing since the
current css definitions are really hacks.

I hope this helps,

Gunnar
