AFAIK, there is no translation of specifically Debian packages to
Indonesian. So, there are plenty translation works can be done on

Well, not many Indonesian are using Debian yet. Further, people think
that Debian is hard to use, they prefer to use other distros. All in

The i18n mailing list for Indonesian is available at linux.or.id.
It's not Debian specific but easier to find others.
