Here is Robert who is now a member of DevRel and Asia team, working on improving the DevX / UX of NEAR tooling, and growing the developer community globally.
The NEAR developer docs / portal https://docs.near.org/ now only support a single language in English.
Recently we received some requests from Chinese community about the needs to have developer docs in Chinese to make it more readable for local community contributors and DApp developers. Jonathan from WeNear Guild submitted an issue for that in GitHub - near/docs: NEAR Protocol Documentation
We also know projects like Ethereum have multiple language support about the docs: ethereum.org Language Translations | ethereum.org
The Jonathan from WeNear Guild is quite interested in taking the initiatives of gathering developers in Chinese community to
- make the docs site support i18n by adding the i18n folder, following the rules of Docusaurus in Translations & Localization · Docusaurus, or customizing the project
- create and maintain Chinese translation of the English version docs.
By having more developers contribute to the developer docs, we’ll also grow the developer community gradually. We may also launch a CN Dev Guild with this work as the starting point for the contributors to learn, share and build together.
