Project Details

Node.js® is a JavaScript runtime built on Chrome's V8 JavaScript engine.

Node.js is a free, cross-platform, open source server environment to execute JavaScript outside of a browser. Traditionally, JavaScript is used for client side scripting and runs by a JavaScript engine embedded within a browser. With Node.js, JavaScript can be used to write command line programs or server side scripting. By this way, developers only need to learn a single programming language to do both server side and client side programming.

Node.js is built on Chrome’s V8 JavaScript execution engine which was initially built for Google Chrome. Instead of interpreting JavaScript in real time, V8 compiles JavaScript code to native binary machine code to improve the performance. Node.js has an event driven architecture which makes it suitable for web applications with many I/O operations. That is why Node.js is very fast compared to similar technologies. libuv is used to handle asynchronous events across operating systems.

Contribution Specifications

I have used Node.js in a few small projects but never got a chance to see a whole picture of this amazing and popular framework. I am very exciting to start translating Node.js and very looking forward to my new learning journey!

Translation overview

The whole project consists of 1,048,272 words. victory622 has started working on this project. Since this project is extremely large therefore collaborations are required. I will be concentrating on the translation of v8.x folder which has 353,483 words to translate.

This submission

In this submission, I have been working on stream module. Most of the source strings are easy to translate. Just one thing worth mentioning: when I translate this string:

The <0>'finish'</0> event is emitted after the <1>stream.end()</1> method
has been called, and all data has been flushed to the underlying system.

My translation was:

在 <1>stream.end()</1> 方法被调用,且所有数据被传递给底层系统后,会发出 <0>'finish'</0> 事件。

But when I saved my translation, it was converted to :

<0>stream.end()</0> 方法被调用,且所有数据被传递给底层系统后,会发出 'finish' 事件。

I have left a comment to project owner about this issue.


I translate Node.js from English to Simplified Chinese.

Word Count

Regarding the number of words, this is my 26th contribution to Node.js project and I have translated 1083 words in stream module.


303 words in “”


1386 words in “”

Total: 1386 - 303 = 1083 words
