Get involved: Looking for African software translators
What better way to contribute to free and open source software than to help translate applications into your home language?
Anloc, the African Network for Localisation, has put out a call for language teams to do exactly this. The organisation’s Localise Software sub-project aims to finalise these teams by the end of the month with translation beginning in earnest from August and running through to January 2011.
Successful translation teams will be awarded US$2,500 at the conclusion of the project to promote the translated applications in their own communities.
