Hello everybody, my name is Gabriele Visconti and I am a manager of GDG Milano chapter in Italy. We attended Google I/O and listened to Nitya Narasimhan talk about GDG Wisdom. We love the idea behind this project and we'd like to contribute by translating the book in Italian as support documentation for the ever increasing Italian GDG chapters. What do you think about that? How can we proceed?
@theoneelectronic hi there — thanks for the support. Sorry for the delay responding (I hadn’t been on Gitter for a while) — I think its a great idea to do a translation! But perhaps also make it something that also has information that is specific/relevant to that region. I wanted to get a v1.0 of the English version done in June (but didn’t make that happen) but hope to get some of this done in early July. After we have some content there, the best way to do this may be to have a forked repo with the appropriate language extension (e.g., gdg-wisdom-it would be the italian version) and keep that subsequently synched (as a translated version) with the original. Let me know if you’d like to chat in a week or two about specifics?
@nitya gitbook has support for localization by using subfolders
@nitya that would be great to chat about that in one of the coming weeks. Just let me know your schedule and we can arrange. We can contribute via subfolder which would keep everything well organized. Being the same project it should also be easier to keep track to the new or modified content in the root English version.
@friedger and @nitya there is a PR on GDG Mentors kindly have a look at it ...
@nitya hi there, speaking of our availability to provide a translation for GDD Wisdom in Italian, how can we proceed?
Currently, there is a discussion at GDGx how to promote our events.
how to promote our projects.
And we came to the conclusion that the gitbook is the right place.
Do you have any ideas how to do the transition to the 2016 edition?
a fork would work well, that way we reference the editions from years past :P

There are three outstanding PRs for GDG Wisdom, any takers?
