Translations portal relaunch

Registered by David Planella on 2011-10-24

The Ubuntu Translations Portal was created at the end of the Natty cycle:
https://blueprints.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+spec/ubuntutheproject-community-n-translations-portal

On the Oneiric cycle work on other projects has put proomoting and using the portal on hold, but this cycle we'd like to relaunch it with more content useful to Ubuntu translators.

Session notes:

Ideas:
- Translations
  - But we need content (we should start with content first)
  - Add a box on the front page showing the statistics for the detected language and associate the message with the translation team
- Content:
  - Tutorials
    - How to translate shortcuts
  - Statistics
  - How do we ensure people land on the site? Link from ubuntu.com
    - Wordpress does a good job at this: "Wordpress is localized at e.g. 80% in your language - you can help!"
    - Community lens for Unity (check out the status with Randall Ross)
Documentation to port:
 - Quickstart guide
 - Upstream info
