Supporting the worldwide development community, the ASP.NET site is piloting automatic translation using the
Microsoft Translator Widget, with the option for site visitors to provide feedback and corrections on the translation. Today we are enabling the translation widget to allow you to help improve the translations
for the languages Brazilan Portuguese, Russian and Simplified Chinese. Overtime we will enable additional languages.
To improve translation quality for your language, please select your language from the Translator Widget and click on the arrow to proceed. Hover over the text you want to improve. A dialog box will pop up. Click “Improve Translation” and enter your suggestion
for an improved translation. For the three supported languages our moderators will review your suggestion, and any approved suggestions will be used for subsequent translation of this sentence. Once approved, translations will be reflected and propagated across
all relevant pages on the site.
If the pilot continues to be successful the team will expand the supported languages. If your language is currently not supported, you can to still submit your suggestions. While your suggestions will not be used immediately for those languages, your feedback
will be an indicator for us which languages to add in the future, and the order we roll them out. Ultimately the goal is to expand translation across the whole site and the languages supported by Visual Studio and related development tools.
