The FreeBSD Greek Documentation Project
Who are we?
We are a group of Greek people using FreeBSD in our homes and work places. Some of us also implement FreeBSD-based solutions for others. We believe the system is great, and hope to make it accessible to more people by translating the documentation into our native language.
Why join us?
Although you will not have any monetary benefits, there are more than enough reasons to join our team:
- You will feel your work is important: You will be assisting an international voluntary project, used by millions of people.
- You will gain the respect of people that will use your work.
- You will understand your system better, and also communicate with people that share your views.
- You will gain technical knowledge on the way the documentation system works.
- It is the kind of work you can actually show (and prove) on your CV.

What you will need
- Some spare time
- The will to help
- A good (not necessarily perfect) knowledge of the English language
What you will not need
- Special equipment and software. An editor, spell checker and an Internet connection is all that is required. A simple dial up connection is sufficient, if that is all you have.
- Expert's knowledge or programming. Most of the times you simply translate the English text, there is no need to change the markup language used (which is simple anyway).

The team has lately concentrated its efforts on the Handbook and FAQ:
Handbook's Volume I (Chapters 1-10 and Appendices) is now ready and is constantly updated and re-synced to the English version. View the build here. Large parts of the Administration Handbook (Volume II) have also been translated, and work continues at a pace of about a chapter per month. For the more recent and experimental changes, please visit our test build
The FreeBSD FAQ is about 40% complete (First five chapters). View the test build here.
A number of articles have been translated. View the builds here.
