[TSVN] TortoiseSVN: FAQ and Norwegian translation

Hallo Heidi,

Doing it is just a few mouse clicks with TortoiseSVN, read the section on
branch / tag in the TortoiseSVN docs. That's not difficult.
If you want to work with a version control system, you have to understand
how it works. Reading the important bits of the docs is one thing to do. You
can try without reading the docs, but then you are going to make more
mistakes. I recommend setting up a playground repository that you can use to
toy around until you feel comfortable and know how it works. I didn't have
any docs (In fact I've written most of them) and that's the way I learned
how to use SVN / TortoiseSVN.
> Translation to Norwegian, how much work is it and is it paid ?
The translation work is not paid. Do you pay Steve or me because you want to
use TortoiseSVN? It's an open source project after all, people contribute
their time because they like the project. :-)
The current Norwegian translation is about 2/3 complete (200 missing
translations). Take a look at
http://tortoisesvn.tigris.org/translations.html for the status. We've got
instructions how the translation process works at
Most of the translations are just short strings, no long sentences. I guess
it is going to take you in total 3-5 hours to catch up to 100% and to refine
the existing translation. Once you're at 100% maintaining the translation is
a snap. It takes me and the others who are up to date five minutes (a week)
to translate the missing strings when something changes. There's no need to
complete everything in one go. Just translate something when you have time,
send me the results, watch the statusbar for Norwegian on
http://tortoisesvn.tigris.org/translations.html change to green and have the
good feeling that you are helping others :-)
If you need help getting started, just send me an e-mail. Please reply to
the dev@tortoisesvn.tigris.org mailing list, because I read the list from
office and home and can answer questions quicker.
