The Office Team is glad to announce our participation in the MSDN and TechNet Library Machine Translation Pilot for SharePoint Products and Technologies.
The MSDN and TechNet Libraries are major resources for developers and IT professionals around the world who use Microsoft tools, products, and technologies. Both libraries contain a bounty of technical information. This includes sample code, documentation, technical articles, and reference guides. In order to provide content to all developers, regardless of locale, we are piloting a test of machine-translating our MSDN and TechNet Library content. The pilot period is scheduled from 11/26/2007 to 1/19/2008.
This pilot will make use of two new Web presentation technologies: bilingual side-by-side display and translation Wiki.
Office SharePoint Server 2007 SDK and Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 SDK (Wiki beta)
Try out this beta version of the machine-translated Office SharePoint Server 2007 SDK and Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 SDK. Add your suggestions and feedback with the Wiki editor.
Office SharePoint Server TechNet (side-by-side beta)
Try out this beta version of the machine-translated Office SharePoint Server TechNet materials, in a side-by-side view with English, and provide feedback in the site survey.
