The translated docs will be located in: SVN: sandbox/boost_docs/trunk/libs/lib_name/doc

Once they are stable, the lib author will be invited to see the results and commit them to the correct location SVN: boost/libs/lib_name/doc

Translation Guide

To translate HTML docs we should wait for the result of Glyn Matthews's HTML to docbook project.

Once we have docbook docs, if the authors wants to have a Quickbook version of it (really recommended), we can use the Quickbook source stylesheet.

Others worth projects for translators are Boost Kate Support and Trac Syntax Coloring for Quickbook.
