At the end of 2018, there was growing interest in the internationalisation of the Carpentries teaching material for non-English language speaking countries. As part of this community- driven initiative, I became involved in the translation of the Software Carpentry materials into Japanese. In this lightning talk, I would like to share my experience on organising, managing, and collaborating with people living in Japan, using Git and GitHub.


I have been involved with The Carpentries since I began my MSc at the University of Otago; first as a learner, then a helper, and finally as an instructor. I became an official Carpentries instructor in 2018, and since then, I have been involved in the translation of The Carpentries material into Japanese.
