Such is the power of Open Source that when php.net/releases/8.0/ launched in four languages (en, pt_BR, de, and ru), someone stepped up IMMEDIATELY to provide a French translation: php.net/releases/8.0/fr.php

@alessandrolai github.com/php/web-php
Use the English version as the source of truth.

You can also reference the Spanish translation my wife put up just a few hours ago: github.com/php/web-php/commit/

Check the README.md in the root of that repo for how to run your own copy of the website (ridiculously simple).

@alessandrolai But honestly, reviving the Italian translation of the documentation would be huge if you can see your way to working on that. We had to retire it since it got out of date.

@pollita really? That's sad! I could try to ask the Italian community to work on that, we'll see.

@alessandrolai @pollita We are currently only moving languages that got commits within the last 2 years over to git. So it might be easier to start a new clone. And perhaps after the transition is done?

@heiglandreas @alessandrolai

What IS the status of the transition, by the way?

The Italian translation is pretty abysmal, I'll give ya that.

@pollita @alessandrolai Technically everything is solved. I need to check one last detail later today and then we'd be ready to go... So more details later today 😉

@heiglandreas @pollita @alessandrolai how does one add a translation? Is it simply by translating to a new file and sending a PR?

@alessandrolai @Skoop @pollita for the docs there needs to be a new repo created for a new language as well as some files adapted to build the language and some more stuff that I need to document somewhere 😁

@alessandrolai @Skoop @pollita So adding a new language to the docs is not _that_ easy. And there needs to be an active community to support a long term sustainable translation effort as it's sadly not a one time effort
