Hey there! I’ve just finished the finally editing and correcting for Chapter 7 of Ubunchu. The long awaiting Installfest chapter. I HIGHLY recommend reading this chapter if you are involved in advocacy at all:
I’m pleased to announce that thanks to the hard work of Arturo Silva and Anton Ekblad we have a speedy translation and editing of the new chapter of Ubunchu. This chapter is all about getting new netbooks for the school and why everyone always uses windows… Because you can’t buy anything without windows preinstalled.
French, Spanish and Indonesian editions are on their way too. We have a new translators mailing list that everyone who wants to be involved, should join: Ubunchu Google Group
A big thank you to both Andrew Starr-Bochicchio and Ddorda for working on the internationalization of the ground control project, the work is on going and the english is likely to change as we come up to these first release milestones, but I’ve excited to see such great work.
We have the pot files automatically uploaded to launchpad and ready for translation, I’m still not sure if it will work since I don’t have any translations yet. But I’m very confident that the code we have so far should work as expected.
Concerning right to left languages (Semitic languages: Arabic and Hebrew) we know that there exist a number of problems where word wrapping problems mean words are off the screen and you have to scroll to them. It’s possible that if you do translations you’ll find more of these kinds of bugs.
So please do report bugs about errors in language translation.
