R4DS translation, {datos} & {dados}

package development

Translating ‘R for Data Science’ to Spanish was a collaborative project of the Latin American R community, which aimed to make R more accessible in our region. I was one of the translators, the editor of the translation, and the person who overviewed the whole process. This role involved creating the documentation and workflows needed to achieve the project.

The {datos} package provides the Spanish translation of the data sets used in the book ‘R for Data Science’ by Hadley Wickham & Garrett Grolemund. The datasets are translated on the fly, thanks to R + YAML magic. In 2021 we developed a Portuguese version, called {dados}. I am one of the authors and the maintainer of both packages.
