Declaring Translation Bankruptcy
25 Aug 2021

It has been talked about for years, and even though we agreed to do it, we never really moved on it. Taking things away is always harder than adding things.

Back in the day, we had active contributions from the community to translate our documentation, and we had a pretty robust system to pull them all together and publish the static HTML site. This system has run flawlessly for years, however, the community translations slowed, then stopped, while the system still carefully churned through it all. We have been providing translated docs since Cordova CLI 3.1.0 while the maintenance of these translated docs started to diverge around Cordova CLI 6.x

Over the next few weeks we will be making aggessive changes to the documentation system.


  • archive all existing translated documentation to a new static archive site
  • remove all translations from the main repo, and update build tooling to only publish the main version

We would like to thank the people who took the initiative in creating the translated docs and those who put time and effort into maintaining them.

We welcome your feedback and comments.
