Interactive Multilingual: Crowdsourcing translations with Tiki

Tiki Features
Many times, software internationalization (often abbreviated as i18n) and translation can quickly become a nightmare... if you don't have the right tools. Tiki's interactive translation feature allows contributors to create, edit, and maintain the more than 40 translations of Tiki Wiki CMS Groupware.

In true "dog-fooding" tradition, the Tiki Community began crowd-sourcing this feature in 2010 by establishing a dedicated Tiki instance for translators. Not only can contributors translate via their browser, but Tiki's interactive translation feature allows textual translations within context. The centralized translation server, running the latest Tiki code, ensures that all translators are using the same version. The translation strings are regularly committed to the Tiki SVN repository.

TikiFest Boston
The Tiki Community recently completed TikiFestBoston7, in Boston. More than 20 community members met to plan, discuss, and demonstrate Tiki Wiki CMS Groupware. Many of the new features included in Tiki 7 were demonstrated, including:
  • Unified Search (based on Lucene)
  • Tiki-powered web sites on mobile devices, using jQuery Mobile
  • theme generator
  • and much more!
Extensive work began on the revamp of Tiki Trackers — a Tiki feature that allows users to create interactive forms and searchable datasets. Tiki 7 will include reorganized and streamlined code, allowing for easier enhancements in the future. Several TikiFesters also participated in a documentation sprint, in an effort to make the Tiki Docs more user-friendly and "catch up" to the current development.

Tiki Features
Do you want to add a custom form (however complex and whatever number of pages) on your site at the speed of thought? Look no further than Tiki Trackers.

With fields like images, dates, files, custom lists, and more, Tiki makes the creation of structured content a pleasure — while other CMS applications just leave you with a bad headache. And Tiki accomplishes this with simple, on-screen, browser-based configuration. There's no need to code even a single line.

Content in Trackers is searchable automagically. In addition, Trackers are sortable, embeddable in any other content page, and secured with Tiki's robust permission set.
  • And you can interlink them
  • And you can navigate through a life-cycle
  • And you can use them to create wiki pages using a standard, common style.
