Norwegian Bokmål translation of The Debian Administrator's Handbook complete, proofreading in progress
3rd March 2017

For almost a year now, we have been working on making a Norwegian Bokmål edition of The Debian Administrator's Handbook. Now, thanks to the tireless effort of Ole-Erik, Ingrid and Andreas, the initial translation is complete, and we are working on the proof reading to ensure consistent language and use of correct computer science terms. The plan is to make the book available on paper, as well as in electronic form. For that to happen, the proof reading must be completed and all the figures need to be translated. If you want to help out, get in touch.

A fresh PDF edition in A4 format (the final book will have smaller pages) of the book created every morning is available for proofreading. If you find any errors, please visit Weblate and correct the error. The state of the translation including figures is a useful source for those provide Norwegian bokmål screen shots and figures.

First draft Norwegian Bokmål edition of The Debian Administrator's Handbook now public
30th August 2016

In April we started to work on a Norwegian Bokmål edition of the "open access" book on how to set up and administrate a Debian system. Today I am happy to report that the first draft is now publicly available. You can find it on get the Debian Administrator's Handbook page (under Other languages). The first eight chapters have a first draft translation, and we are working on proofreading the content. If you want to help out, please start contributing using the hosted weblate project page, and get in touch using the translators mailing list. Please also check out the instructions for contributors. A good way to contribute is to proofread the text and update weblate if you find errors.

Our goal is still to make the Norwegian book available on paper as well as electronic form.

Lets make a Norwegian Bokmål edition of The Debian Administrator's Handbook
10th April 2016

During this weekends bug squashing party and developer gathering, we decided to do our part to make sure there are good books about Debian available in Norwegian Bokmål, and got in touch with the people behind the Debian Administrator's Handbook project to get started. If you want to help out, please start contributing using the hosted weblate project page, and get in touch using the translators mailing list. Please also check out the instructions for contributors.

The book is already available on paper in English, French and Japanese, and our goal is to get it available on paper in Norwegian Bokmål too. In addition to the paper edition, there are also EPUB and Mobi versions available. And there are incomplete translations available for many more languages.
