Zanata is a web-based system translators use to contribute localized documentation back to projects.
It is written in Java and uses modern web technologies like JBoss, Seam, GWT, Hibernate, and a REST API.
Zanata supports translation of DocBook/Publican documentation through PO files. Projects can be uploaded to and downloaded from a Zanata server using a Maven plugin or a Python client.
If you have a jboss.org account, you are already able to log onto Zanata.
For information about getting started as a translation contributor, refer to the Zanata Getting Started Guide.
