  • Create the directory for locale inside i18n.
$ mkdir -p i18n/ru
  • Run the write-translations command:
$ npm run write-translations -- --locale ru
  • Copy the original doc files inside the translation directories:
$ mkdir -p i18n/ru/docusaurus-plugin-content-docs/current
$ cp -r blog/* i18n/ru/docusaurus-plugin-content-blog
$ cp -r news/* i18n/ru/docusaurus-plugin-content-blog-news
$ cp -r docs/* i18n/ru/docusaurus-plugin-content-docs/current
