[Translation][Spanish] Node.js (1061 words) (Part 46)

in #utopian-iolast year (edited)




Project Details

Node.js, by definition, is an open-source, cross-platform JavaScript run-time environment that executes JavaScript code outside the browser. This means that now it is possible to execute a program written in JS outside a web browser such as Google Chrome, Safari, etc. This creates an extension to what the language can do, besides just creating interactive websites. With the help of the V8 JavaScript runtime engine, it can now take the code and convert it into a faster machine code, e. g., Node.js eliminates the waiting and continues to take care of the next task.

From my personal perspective, Node.js represents an advantage for the coders to write code, since it still has all the capabilities and functionalities JavaScript offers, but now in a more extended way. Also, thanks to all the time I have been contributing with this project, I have realized the huge amount of time and effort that the Node.js team has taken in order to make it as good as it is and also to improve it with every single upgrade.

You can take a look at their Crowdin project here.

Contribution Specifications

  • Translation Overview

This is the 46th translation I made for the Node.js project, and on this contribution I finished translating the WRITING-AND-RUNNING-BENCHMARKS.MD and the WRITING-TESTS.MD folders, and I started with MANTAINING-V8.MD. As I already defined the first two in my previous posts, I am just going to define the last one:

-- MANTAINING-V8.MD: The intention of this folder is to inform the coders the right way to maintain the V8 engine. It starts by showing its background, the requirements for the support and the maintaining process. This is a very important folder since it informs the user about the different fixed and unfixed bugs on it, how to get rid of them and the way to do a backport.

Since on this folder you can't find the definition what V8 exactly is, I would like to share it, because I believe it is essential to understand the context as a whole.

Chrome V8, or also known as just V8, is an open-source JS engine developed by the Chromium Project for Google Chrome and Chromium web browsers. Its function is to compile JavaScript directly to native machine code before executing it, instead of more traditional techniques, such as interpreting bytecode or compiling the program to machine code. The code that has been compiled is later additionally optimized (an re-optimized) dynamically at runtime.


Picture by Wikipedia

Now, let's talk about a new term I found on this contribution: Backport.

Backporting is defined as the action of taking different parts from a newer version of a computer software or a software component and later porting them to an older version of the same program or software. This is a part of the maintenance step in a software development process, and it is usually used for fixing security issues in older versions of the software, and it works also for providing new features to older versions.

I would like to clarify that these words, both backport and backporting were kept untranslated since they are both used that way in Spanish as well.

Examples of strings translated:

1. EN: Maintaining V8 in Node.js

SP: Mantenimiento de V8 en Node.js

2. EN: V8 Release Schedule

SP: Programa de Lanzamiento de V8

3. EN: V8 only supports active branches.

SP: V8 sólo soporta ramas activas.

Hi @samuellmiller,

Thank you for submitting your contribution!

  • Node.js is a very interesting project that contains many code values and terms related to computer science. Its difficulty relies on the fact that we must pay a lot of attention to the code in order to deliver the most accurate translation possible.

  • Your presentation post includes all the basic information related to the project, interesting concepts and useful examples of your work as a translator.

  • You did a very good job with your translation. The vocabulary you used is appropriate for the project and for the Spanish language, just try to avoid typos as much as possible in future contributions.

Keep up the good work!
