Discontinuing the Symfony Community Translations
A few days ago, we updated the documentation section on symfony.com to remove the French and Italian community translations. From now on, on this website you will only find the original English documentation.
The main reason behind this decision is that when developers browse the documentation published on symfony.com, they must be sure that the contents are always the right ones. In the case of a translation, this means that all its contents in all branches must always be perfectly synced with the original English version.
Given the frenzy activity on the symfony-docs repository, it's no longer possible to keep the translations perfectly synced. For instance, during the past month, 50 people pushed 43 commits changing 2,000 lines of contents in 139 different files. And that was just for the 2.8 branch. In total there were 173 commits on 2.3, 2.7, 2.8 and master branches.
If you still want to read the translated documentation, you can visit these new websites:
- documentation-symfony.fr, managed by Grégory, the French translation leader.
- docs.symfony.it, managed by Massimiliano, the Italian translation leader.
Help the Symfony project!
As with any Open-Source project, contributing code or documentation is the most common way to help, but we also have a wide range of sponsoring opportunities.
