Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Some of us think that documentation must be written in English *then* translated in other languages if need be.
But why not let people write directly in their native language?
Because as said by others we need a complete base first. And as it seems this wiki will be integrated to the mothership (docs.slackware.com), we will need thorough verification of the articles to stick with the slack philosophy. Of course I understand what you say: better in another lang than nothing ...
I've registered at SlackDocs, and subscribed to the mailing list. Reading now.
AlienBOB, I really wanna see your network/wireless article on the wiki, it helped me getting online ! And when your online, all other problems can be googled/LQed If you want I can duplicate it. (BTW if you could check this post, I dunno how relevant my bug was to the wireless scripts).

Oh nostalgia, I learnt Logo and BASIC when I was 8yo at school ^^ What was the purpose of your translation: educational, recreational, professional ? I may have learnt on your translated versions !
On the dark side, I remember when Texas Instruments decided to translate EVERY function names in their Ti89 in people's native languages. So my french friends were unable to use ANY of the programs written in english without a prior functions translation (not even talking about strings huh). I ended up installing the EN firmware in their calcs ... The intention was nice, but it was practically useless.

C'était dans le cadre d'un mémoire soutenu en vue d'obtenir le diplôme de psychologue du travail du Conservatoire National des Arts et Métiers :
"Mise à disposition directe des utilisateurs d'un micro ordinateur dans un service de gestion : étude psycho-sociologique". As traslated by Google:
This was part of a thesis supported in order to obtain the diploma of occupational psychologist at the National Conservatory of Arts and Crafts:
"Provision of direct users of a microcomputer in a service management: study psycho-sociological
By the way that was the first "personal computer" used in Billancourt plant of Renault. And I wrote a Logo interpreter in BASIC

Wow ok, nice background ! 30 years ago, I was barely born ^^
And funny that at that time, a psycho-social study was needed in order to prove PC's usefullness at work
I wanted to ask you about the conclusions of the study, but I'll PM instead, let's stick to the original debate.
About that, are you trying to imply that Google translate is now good enough for us to check the correctness of foreign languages translations ? The FR to EN is almost correct.
BTW, AlienBOB's docuwiki seems to handle translations.
