Get involved: Looking for African software translators

By   |  July 16, 2010

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.

Each of the teams will be assisted by a small team of technical experts who will assist them with the localisation of various applications.

The applications earmarked to be translated are Tux Paint, Pidgin, Pootle (a web-based translation system), Virtaal (a multi-platform offline translation tool), VLC and Abiword.

Successful translation teams will be awarded US$2,500 at the conclusion of the project to promote the translated applications in their own communities.
