[Bug 1532537] Re: Impossible to choose language on help.ubuntu.com


> Is help.ubuntu.com (the page) editable?

That page is one of only a few hand written html files that "glue" the
entire help.ubuntu.com together. By far, most of the files actually have
their master code in another project (help docs or serverguide or
installation guide or cloud stuff). Yes, it is editable via the
help.ubuntu.com master code in the bzr branch (
doc/help.ubuntu.com/help.ubuntu.com ).

Yes, we could add a more detailed note, as Chris suggested, keeping in
mind that we were attempting to keep extra stuff on that page to a
minimum and also trying to keep the page from being too long on a lower
resolution display (which it already got longer when we added the
Canonical Cloud stuff).

Peter might want to chime in.

Bug description:
  I am a Dutch user. However, for virtually any technical documentation,
  English is the lingua franca on the web. It is an incredible nuisance
  to look up technical details in Dutch. I appreciate the effort to make
  help.ubuntu.com accessible in all languages, however it is a TERRIBLE
  idea (and quite frankly, since the content is available in English,
  but I can't access it, I classify it as a bug) to prevent people from
  changing the language they read it in.

  Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
  I expect to be able to read online help files in English.
  Instead, I am forced to read them in Dutch.
