Greetings everybody,

i take this opportunity to announce to the python community that Arabic
translations for the docs have started at

as per the PEP written by @JulienPalard and @Mariatta, we are working on
the tutorials (for 3.7). you can view details in the docs mailing list

coordinator for this project : myself

as i have contributed to the french docs, i have cloned the .po french repo
for the Arabic one and modified accordingly

as per recommedations for coordinators (thanking @Julien for tips) i have
been contacting arab-speaking developers for involvement and announcing the
project. feedbacks were positive with the likes of

وشكرا لك على المبادرة الجميلة
And thank you for the beautiful initiative

والله يعطيكم الف عافية
And may Allah/God gives you (literally) thousands of wellness

however, i've found out that git is a major barrier for translations as
well. many programmers for fun around, they like py, they use it, but few
actually have a github account. must search further. nevertheless they are
willing to translate as much as i want, i am still pondering an appropriate
off-git solution, then merge by me.

for the past days we have been convening on the keywords, the starting
point of any translation, as, though i know Arabic, i have to cross check
with native speakers as to how they really say it as there are words that
are left untranslated but written in arabic as well as for similar details

that said, i call to python programmers, in any language to contribute to
translations, as you will by the way know the docs thoroughly.

and in the case of this mail, a special call for arabic-speaking people to
get involved

this is a huge task (french still at 29%) but i believe that this will help
programmers around the world to better access such a sleek, candy, soulful,
neat and lovely language, and my way of saying thank you / contributing
back to the community

your fellow brother in code,

Abdur-Rahmaan Janhangeer
