Afrikaans translators make good progress on Gnome 2.26

By   |  March 19, 2009

Yesterday we wrote about the impending release of Gnome 2.26 and how it felt a little underwhelming. Now that the final release is here we still feel like that but it is worth mentioning that South African translators have made good progress with the Afrikaans localisations of the desktop.

As Friedel Wolff points out, more than 25 percent of Gnome 2.26 has been translated into Afrikaans. Which is good progress over the 19 percent of Gnome 2.24. Other localisation efforts such as Zulu and Xhosa are also at varying stages of development.

If you’re insterested in advancing any of these translation efforts then get hold of Translate.org.za.

    I’d really encourage people to help out. I did gnome-spell and Friedel reviewed it for me. He’s also a master at doing the human facing stuff so although its only 26% I think that people are getting anything from 60-80% Afrikaans experience. For some people it might even be a 90% experience.
