Yesterday gbianchi posted on Meta Stack Overflow en Español a post about how could we help translating a help article that looks to be new. The related help article was announced on an answer posted on September '18 to Could we have a Help Center page on disassociating posts? which was posted four years ago.

People following the above Meta SE question could be noticed the new help article. I'm wondering if there are other means to be notified about new help articles in order the international sites community help to translate them from English to the international site corresponding language.

Currently the only version that is already translated is the ru.so. es.so, pt.so, ja.so and rus.se versions are in English at this time.


On Stack Overflow en Español we had a post we were coordinating efforts to translate help articles in English to Spanish but currently we are using a GitHub repo.

Links to the corresponding instance for each international site

  • Didn't happen b/c the terminal is newer than the referred help article used to illustrate the concern (: But this question is about future new/edited help articles. – Rubén Nov 24 '18 at 22:30
  • I think someone, like a worker on the site itself, should at least translate it once it's edited or replaced by a new one. – Stack Exchange Tornado Nov 24 '18 at 22:44

    Good one! Also, we currently do not have a way to know if an article from the Help Center is updated, either, so international sites may have translations of outdated documents. – fedorqui 'SO stop harming' Nov 24 '18 at 23:06
  • Possible related: Improved Help Center - site-specific pages and site-specific edits to all pages (see the last part of the Jon Ericson's answer) – Rubén Nov 26 '18 at 23:12
