I just received a copy of the Chinese translation of Pentaho Kettle Solutions.
Right off the bat when we made it open source over 8 years ago, Kettle became very popular in China. Among the very first Chinese people who helped out with bug fixing and translation was Jason Chu , a Pentaho BI Consultant who lives in Beijing city. Jason spent a few years of his life translating Pentaho Kettle Solutions, a book written by yours truly, Jos Van Dongen and of-course my colleage Roland Bouman.
While I can’t read Chinese (at all) the look and feel of the book is excellent: graphics are great and for example screenshots were re-done in the Chinese localization setting of Spoon. The book is published by Wiley and from what I learned from their method of publishing is that it is guaranteed to offer excellent results. Congratulations to all involved in making this book possible!
It’s impossible to thanks Jason enough for all the hard work he has done, also now in translating our book and with this post I would like to recommend the end-result to all Chinese people!
Have fun with Kettle wherever you are!
