GNUnited Nations (abbreviated GNUN) is a collection of scripts that are supposed to make the life of http://gnu.org translators easier. Although it is specifically developed for the GNU Project’s website, it could be customized, at least in theory, to fit the needs of other internationalized sites. GNUN is in early stage of development, but if it proves useful, and if there is sufficient interest (and time), it is possible to develop a robust configuration interface that would be appropriate for general usage.
It is vitally important to understand that GNUN is not a silver bullet that solves all problems. If we have to be honest, deploying GNUN in fact even does create some (see Disadvantages).
GNUnited Nations is free software, available under the GNU General Public License.
This manual is organized in way that is suitable both for translators and GNU Web Translation managers (plus eventually interested GNU Webmasters, if any). It may also serve as an introductory material and reference for new GNUN developers and contributors. Hopefully, it might be useful to people who customize and adopt the software for a third party site or for their own needs. Feel free to skip sections or entire chapters if they are irrelevant for your intended usage.
