"With a total of 236 million speakers, Portuguese is the 6th most spoken language in the world," - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portuguese_language

That's a lot of people, and many are developers, so we're proud to announce that we have today registered the domain orchardproject.pt for the Portuguese speaking community of Orchard developers and end-users.

We're working towards a community that will drive Portuguese speaking developers to use Orchard, with documentation, news updates, etc.

As well as the end-users with guides and how-tos, directory of active developers and projects built with Orchard, etc.

And of course to increase Orchard's reach and the contributions to it.

This is an open project, if anyone else would like to join the initiative, let your voices be heard.

Watch this space, for more news and updates.

"Com um total de 236 milhões de falantes, o Português é a 6ª mais falada língua do mundo" traduzido de: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portuguese_language

É muita gente, e muitos são programadores, é por essa razão que temos o prazer de anunciar que registamos hoje o domínio orchardproject.pt para a comunidade de programadores e utilizadores finais do Orchard.

O nosso objectivo é de dar a conhecer o Orchard aos programadores de língua portuguesa com documentação, actualizações, etc.

Assim como aos utilizadores finais com guias e "how-tos", directórios de programadores activos e projectos construídos com o Orchard, etc.

Assim também aumentar o numero de usos do Orchard e contribuições para o projecto.

Este projecto é aberto a todos, se alguém quiser colaborar para a iniciativa, que deixe aqui o seu interesse.

Estejam atentos a este espaço, para mais notícias e actualizações.

Good initiative.

The link displays a 'Enkompass Default Page' for the moment.


You should ask to Bertrand to add a link on http://orchardproject.net/discussions and may be open a Portuguese category on the forum.

I hope you will take some time to open an account to translate the missing resources of the localization .po files with the online tool : http://orchardproject.net/localize/pt-PT 

Register on http://orchardproject.net/Users/Account/Register and then ask to Bertrand to activate it.

Yes, still setting it up ;)

I'm taking the opportunity to use and release the guide on how I use GIT with the Mercurial repo together.

Thanks for the pointers, we'll also be contributing to the localization of course.

Hi, http://www.orchardproject.pt/ is now live, still not the "end product" a lot more still to be done:

- Branding, include Portuguese flag in background image

- Improve sidebar recent posts (remove tags and published by and only include summary text)

- Improve blog post detail page (layout in-line with summary items, tags at bottom, published by)

- Translate Download & Contrib pages (currently redirecting to .net url's)

- Translate Documentation (will hold this until http://orchard.codeplex.com/discussions/400017 is further developed)

- Public registration for developers and users.

- The OrchardProject.net Theme needed a lot of changes, they are still not final, but it would be great if we could update the theme in the gallery at some point

- SEO it!

If anyone wishes to contribute to this project, the repo is located in https://github.com/pnmcosta/orchardprojectpt

Congratulations! I added the site to the home page widget and to the help page on the main site. Let me know if you need a new forum as well.

Oct 21, 2012 at 10:27 PM

Thank you! It's still early days, but we're hoping to grow quite fast, already see some positive feedback on twitter :)

Yes please if you could setup the forum that would be great.


Oct 21, 2012 at 11:54 PM

What do you want the name of the forum to be?

Oct 22, 2012 at 9:51 AM

Just to clarify, if by forum you mean a new discussion category like http://orchard.codeplex.com/discussions/topics/5315/francais-french

"Português (Portuguese)" would be fine.

Done :)
