Request to add project: Blockly

Jump to navigation Jump to search

I'm an engineer on Blockly, an open source (Apache License 2.0) programming environment aimed at helping children learn to program. Here's a maze tutorial and a write-up of its use in Vietnam by my colleague Neil Fraser. Blockly is hosted at Google Code, where you can see it is under active development. We have some enthusiastic volunteers and have already gotten the maze tutorial translated into 7 languages using ad hoc technology, but we want to do much more, which requires the sort of technology (and access to volunteers) that you offer. We have already begun generating .pot (gettext) file but could create other formats if they're better. We've looked into Transifex, but their limits on the length of message documentation are insufficient, among other things.

That looks like an awesome app. I've seen something like that in a TED talk recently. Can we do a hangout on this somewhere this weekend to see what we can make happen? Please contact me at siebrand AT wikimedia DOT org. I live in the Netherlands, so I'm UTC+1 (until Sunday, when that changes to UTC+2).
