I am actually from Hongkong, since we are suffering from the CONVIR-19. During this period, students need to stay at home, and some of them request me to help them translate it into Traditional Chinese, so that they can use it more easily. If it is possible to speed up the process is appreciated. Since I don’t know Go too much, so some translations may be not very good and it may still need fine tunings or corrections. Should you need any help I am welcome to do that.

@anoek 繁體中文 would be better. And perhaps then 中文 can be changed to 简体中文

“zh-cn” is normally mapped to “简体中文”, which means “Simplified Chinese”
“zh-hk”,“zh-tw” are normally mapped to “繁體中文”, which means the “Traditional Chinese”

In Google translate you will see “Chinese (Simplified)” and “Chinese (Traditional)” for these two languages, so you may also use the following format, “中文(简体)” for zh-cn, “中文(繁體)” for zh-tw/zh-hk.

hk and tw use almost the same set of Chinese characters, except hk may contains some special characters. But I think these characters will not be used in OGS. So TW and HK can be grouped into “Chinese (Traditional)” / “中文(繁體)”

But never mind that if you want to split it into hk & tw, I will maintain both of them, until there is person from Taiwan to take over it. Since I am not sure some terms’ call may be different in Taiwan.
(same message also post to github)
