It is true that we have no content online. In fact at this time there
are many books written in the Sidama language, though they are in
Sidama itself or in Amharic. The language is fully written with Latin
alphabet (like English) and is not Unicode based like Amharic. It has
no accented characters as well. I prefer
the <> to be
used. The correct name of the language is also Sidama, not Sidamo.

Ok, thanks for the news   :) 

Your subsite is setup, login at with
subsite admin permissions.
Two more roles are available for further team members, publisher and
author with more restrictive permissions.

You've also got author perms at the main site, so you may browse the
backend of the international pages and maybe grab some code here and
there. A tiny dropdown on top of the admin panel allows to switch subsites.
(Watch the language dropdown at the left column when switching and reset
it to yours if necessary.)

Tab Files & Images: prepared a folder 'sidama' in Uploads, where you may
upload and store files up to 32M (php limit). We will upload bigger
stuff for you in case.

Brief intros to silverstripe handling are available at the 'Help' tab of
the admin-panel and more information about styles, colorbox,
photoshuffler at

We do not use the built in translation feature of silverstripe (except
for the donation pages) so it looks easiest to me just to grab the
source code of pages from the main site, translate it and paste it into
new pages at your subsite.

For most pages the page-type 'Page' will do, others like widget- or
download-page are quite self explaining once you know they are there.
Page type may also be changed later on.

Please stay to the basic structure like the main site to make it easy
for visitors. As mentioned above, you may take a closer look at the
respective page configurations of the international pages in english.

Ask your questions here at the website list, there are always
experienced helpers around.
