Dear Scikit-Learn team!

I am Mariángela Petrizzo, I am writing to you as a member of Qu4nt, a team
dedicated to the use of open source tools for the development of software
solutions with emphasis on data science. We have a strong interest in
translating the Scikit-Learn documentation into Spanish.

Our team is made up of members from various scientific fields, including
some university faculty in linguistics and computer sciences, with a wide
experience in Python as well as several libraries used for data analysis
and machine learning, and also contribute  locally as evangelists of its
use in Spanish-speaking communities, in particular, the leader initiated
the translation of some Software Carpentry lessons into Spanish.

That is why we have been discussing the opportunity to offer our
contribution to the Python project, promoting the translation into Spanish
of the documentation of some of the libraries with the greatest impact in
our areas of interest. Talking with David Mertz, to whom we are sending a
copy of this email, we have explored options, and the idea of working with
Scikit-learn has really seemed to be an exceptional opportunity for all of
us and the community. He's very enthusiastic about the idea of generating a
spanish translation of Scientific Python libraries like Scikit-learn.

For us, this translation project has to be done through a completely open
work on Github, taking as reference the restructured text sources for
Sphinx from a git fork, using the tools provided by Sphinx itself for
internationalization: https://www.sphinx-doc.org/en/1.8/intl.html, and
applying tags to perform planned updates. In addition, as with any open
source project, the main mechanism for quality assurance comes from the
users themselves who will have the channels available for submitting
issues. Our intention is to secure all the infrastructure and mechanisms to
make this possible: making the process transparent through Github, using as
much as possible tools like Transifex to facilitate participation, and
providing guidelines for contributors as part of the project.

Of course, this project cannot be realized without your support. We
therefore come to you to inquire about your willingness to accompany and
support this project.

We would love to hear your feedback on our proposal.

Best regards,



María Ángela Petrizzo Páez
