Translate the "book" into Chinese


#1

Hello everyone, I’m a rust-lang fan from China, I wonder if you/who can authorize me to translate the book (https://doc.rust-lang.org/stable/book/) into Chinese?

thank you!

It’s great that you’re interested!

The book is open-source and licensed permissively, so you don’t actually need authorisation (as long as you obey the license).

However, before you dive in, @steveklabnik and @brson are looking at ways that this can be done officially/in a structured manner, so it may make sense to either wait for that, or, at least know that there may be some reformatting required in future.

Thank you for your information huon!

I have https://github.com/rust-lang/rust/pull/25751 open, which already contains a link to a Chinese translation, maybe you’d like to help them out :slight_smile:

How is the Chinese translation going on now? Completed or still on-going? I might be able to lend a help hand (as a professional linguist) if that’s still relevant…
