[openstack-dev] [i18n] Edge and Containers whitepapers ready for translation

When I saw overall translation source strings on container whitepaper, I
would infer that new edge computing whitepaper
source strings would include HTML markup tags. On the other hand, the
source strings of edge computing whitepaper
which I18n team previously translated do not include HTML markup tags,
since the source strings are based on just text format.
I really appreciate Akihiro's work on RST-based support on publishing
translated edge computing whitepapers, since
translators do not have to re-translate all the strings. On the other
hand, it seems that I18n team needs to investigate on
translating similar strings of HTML-based edge computing whitepaper
source strings, which would discourage translators.
That's my point of view on translating edge computing whitepaper.
For translating container whitepaper, I want to further ask the
followings since *I18n-based tools*
would mean for translators that translators can test and publish
translated whitepapers locally:
- How to build translated container whitepaper using original
https://docs.openstack.org/i18n/latest/tools.html describes well how
to build translated artifacts for RST-based OpenStack repositories
but I could not find the way how to build translated container
whitepaper with translated resources on Zanata.
With many thanks,
