So, I had the same question, Googled it and found this thread. Follow-up question: each of the five drafts in other languages have both "edit" and "publish" links next to them in my drafts folder. Do I need to actually hit publish for them to go live? Or did you guys already do that? Just for neatness' sake I'd like to clean them up and get them out of my drafts folder if possible...
Those are machine-translated projects waiting on a language expert to clean them up. The goal was to translate some of the best projects on Instructables (hey, congrats!) to help launch the language-specific sites. They're in your unpublished queue because we want you to continue to get the credit for the excellent project you made, even if you didn't originally compose the project in Japanese, Chinese, German, Portuguese, and Spanish.
The translations are not quite ready for publication yet, so please wait to remove them from your Drafts folder. If they're really impacting how you use the site, send me a PM and we'll figure something out.
Ok, definitely not that big of a deal. I'm just a neat freak and wanted to go ahead and hit "publish" if they were ready.
Will we (authors) be able to see view counts, favorites etc in the different languages once they're posted? I'll be curious to see how popular my projects are in different regions/languages.
