@gregster No pressure on anyone, ahah ;) I'll start it, but I have no idea how long this is gonna take :P
@SOTE Great :+1:

I'll get on both these tasks later today.
Were you guys able to get in contact with anybody at the Korean website? Hopefully something can be setup so that they can help translate the docs from English to Korean.

Maybe also advertise on the Korean link here at our website, that you are looking for document translation help.

It's not been a nationalistic, ethnic, or racist type of thing on the forums but rather existing websites (the Korean one has been around and promoting AutoHotkey since 2008), a large group of AutoHotkey users that speak a particular language, and who is translating the English help files into another language.

Maybe you can link to "Viking" websites that primarily promote AutoHotkey (don't know if that would be interesting or scary), or perhaps you can translate the English help file into "Viking" related languages (which appears the closest language would be Icelandic).

happy new year
For any new ethnic forum a couple things have to occur.
  • Language barrier No suitable listed language exists to support the user base
  • a substantial user base must exist
  • an established trusted member of this community must volunteer and be approved to moderate it.
All three criteria must be met.

With the Koreans in particular they simply did their own thing. but they did it in a way that we want to figure out how to recognise
We are troubled on every side‚ yet not distressed; we are perplexed‚
but not in despair; Persecuted‚ but not forsaken; cast down‚ but not destroyed;

They are not as busy as here, LOL, but they have users and activity.

However, that's his kind of blog/hello page, so maybe a bit iffy. I will send you his registered email by PM.

@joedf

A Korean translation of the AutoHotkey help document was done 4 years ago by 한글판 johjnsonj 151111, and he put it on SourceForge, instead of GitHub. The translation is a bit behind version wise, but arguably good enough that you might want to link to it or include it in the download section (after inspecting it).

Here is the online document link- http://autohotkeykr.sourceforge.net/docs/commands/
Here is the download- https://sourceforge.net/projects/autohotkeykr/

The SourceForge profile of the creator, who you might want to contact to see if he's interesting in updating the help file or joining the site (if he's not already a member). https://sourceforge.net/u/johnsoonj/profile/

That looks great. If it's not too much trouble, there is a couple more things in regards to the help file and GitHub:

Can you also put the Korean GitHub link on the AutoHotkey download page, where the German and Chinese links are (https://www.autohotkey.com/download/)?

At GitHub, it would be good if the Korean AutoHotkey.chm is put in a zip and as a downloadable file under releases (https://github.com/ahkscript/AHK-Docs_KR/releases). This is what has been done for the German translation of the help file.
This is the direct SourceForge download link to the .zip (careful as it will almost immediately download-
https://sourceforge.net/projects/autohotkeykr/files/AutoHotkey%20help.zip/download) or you might want to only put the AutoHotkey.chm in a .zip for GitHub.

Lastly, it would probably be a good idea to add the Korean online translation of the help document next to the German and Chinese ones at the bottom of this page (https://www.autohotkey.com/). Link to the Korean online translation- http://autohotkeykr.sourceforge.net/docs/commands/

Documentation (de - 帮助)
Note- As the French translation comes along, the same would be nice.

Thank you.

Since the CHM file is now hosted on GitHub, it would be better to make the online help accessible via https://ahkscript.github.io/KR/docs/. What you need to do is the following:

  • In the repo AHK-Docs_KR, move the files from src into the KR folder so that the path is KR/docs/ instead of KR/src/docs/ and commit this change.
  • In the repo ahkscript.github.io, add a submodule (git command is git submodule add https://github.com/ahkscript/AHK-Docs_KR KR) and commit this change.
Note that changes made later in AHK-Docs_KR are only visible after a "git submodule update" in ahkscript.github.io (followed by commit).

Or I can do it myself, if you make me a member of ahkscript. So I can also adjust the Korean docs to the new navigation bar.

This is great. It's also amazing how AutoHotkey is worldwide.

Thanks @joedf.

I've "modernized" the Korean docs and submitted a PR for ahkscript.github.io to make the docs accessible via https://ahkscript.github.io/ko/docs/. After merging, it may take some time for this address to work, depending on the "mood" of GitHub (but can be forced if necessary).

I intentionally chose KO instead of KR, as KO is the official abbreviation for the Korean language according to ISO 639-1. Also in lower case to, for example, simplify manual writing.
