Blender is used by artist around the world however, our efforts do not meet the demand for providing localization for the software and documentation.
The current workflow for both Blender itself and the user manaul are a bit convoluted. For both projects on boarding is difficult, there are no clear steps for how a new translator should get commit writes.
The only translators that we get are the ones that are either brave enough to make the changes and submit patches are create some sort of task/email stating they would like to help.
Communication among translators for a specific language are very limited and it is difficult for multiple translators to work together.
