in reply to The initial compilation
in thread Portuguese Nodes Index

I was wondering what is the actual reason for the translations.

Is it really necessary to translate nodes to a certain language? then what about other languages? is it expected to see nodes now that are portugese, french, german, hindu, arabic, hibru, spanish... etc.

Please note that I appreciate your work, but I'm wondering why this should be done. Is there a plan to translate the monastery to other languages around? or is there something so special about portugese?

He who asks will be a fool for five minutes, but he who doesn't ask will remain a fool for life.

    Some more information on this topic can be found in the thread "Non-English posts on Perlmonks". I'm a little surprised you missed the discussion--It was very heated ;)

    The idea, as far as I'm concerned, is to increase knowledge about Perl. Most people find it easier to learn in their own language. The reason Portuguese is being indexed here is because the Portuguese-speakers at the Monastery are active in this regard. If you would like to translate something, then I personally would encourage you to do so.

    I hope that answers your questions.

    Dear Chady

    Thank you very much for writing and ask. Also thank you for appreciating my work. This makes me happy.

    The actual reason for publishing translations for the best articles and documentation in the PerlMonks Monastery is to provide access to PerlMonks for our less english-skilled fellows in Perl. Just because they choosed another language (french or deutch, maybe?) it doesn't means that they can't read and participate on PerlMonks. They can even have their best articles translated to english, so the rest of the community could learn something from them too.

    In few words, translating PerlMonks documentation and best articles to other languages is like building a bridge to join other Perl communities into PerlMonks family. This makes the family bigger, the knowledge greather, the parties better and the life easier.
