Quick Report on GlassFish Webinars in Portuguese, Chinese and Japanese


A quick report on today's Special Webinars: we decided to postpone the Portuguese version for the week of March 1st (next week is Carnival and we can't compete with it), but the Japanese and the Chinese webinars went very well.

We had 144 viewers for the Japanese webinar, with a maximum of 44 attendees at a given time, while the Chinese max was 26 but the total of viewers was 153. Plenty of questions and online chatting, and we all decided we will do it again.

I still need to schedule my spanish presentation... :-(

GlassFish Japanese FAQ

The GlassFish User FAQ, an always evolving source of information for GlassFish users, is now available in Japanese courtesy of Tomonori Shioda. This FAQ is a wiki, so please feel free to enhance the English or the Japanese versions!

Work on the Developer FAQ (for people developing GlassFish) is also underway.

For more details and additional distributions, check Ming's note. Note that the translations of the web site go down one level, then they revert to english. And, if you are interested in helping, please participate at g11n@glassfish.dev.java.net.

Your Help Wanted! I encourage you to download your favorite localized version and post your experience on this blog; what worked, and what didn't work. Thanks!

Corrected! I've corrected this entry; I've also written a follow-up entry with more info for the Spanish Locale.

GlassFish in Japanese

Mount Fuji

There is now a translation of the GlassFish community page into japanese (see FishEye Putback). Thanks to Ogino, Yuta and everybody that helped!

We have several localization efforts ongoing; others include TheAquarium ([ja], [ru], [es], [zh]) and the Java EE Download pages ([ja]). Still, if feels to me we can do better about using the energy of the community; perhaps we can brainstorm about this during JavaOne?
