the particular language to step in.
Few Indian languages which have already been added on
the transifex page  for Calamares are Hindi,
Gujarati, Urdu & Marathi .
You can request translation of calamares in your
language on to calamares Transifex page.
If you are an open source contributor or translator,
I request you to consider translating
Calamares into Indian languages that you know.

Understand that this contribution to calamares project will
not be a contribution for any particular operating system, but
for all the operating systems which use calamares installer.
We at the Hamara Linux Project are also evaluating
Calamares as an
installer for Hamara Linux. And so far the evaluation
is going great.
You can try a development build of Hamara here  to
get a feel of
calamares installer. Make sure you boot into
the live desktop before starting the installer.
It uses calamares Installer only when you boot live
into the desktop of
it. If you start the Installation directly from
outside, it will still
use Debian Installer from the outside.
We would like to see Indian languages in Calamares
Installer which can
be used by Hamara as well as other distributions, may
be Debian themself. (Hopefully )
If you are not a translator, but you know someone who
is, let them know
