I hope you've noticed French translation, released together
with LilyPond 2.6 in June 2005.

Don't miss the one-year-old address@hidden mailing list, where
French-speaking users give and get support and discuss translations.
Suscribe to it at
and you'll be welcome to the translation team!

All this won't be a problem, and it's a hot topic!

In fact, the tutorial is already translated, see
That's a draft which will be removed as soon as it is integrated in the
official docs.

If managing the translation team means telling what should be
translated, managing commits to the git source repository, helping
translators with technical aspects, I am one of the French managers.

More actually, the Translations Big Boss is one of LilyPond authors, Jan
Nieuwenhuizen, who is currently working on integration of translated
docs into the official docs.

So, for any French translation question, please send a email to the
lilypond-user-fr list first; then, if a complex or technical issue that
I can't solve appears, we'll forward the discussion to the appropriate
English-speaking list.
