Quoting Danishka Navin (firstname.lastname@example.org): > Hi, > > Currently I am contributing to gnome  , Mozilla and Openoffice > localization > > Could you please tell me how to start the Debian specific translations. For mailing lists readers, this comes from a mail exchange I had last 2 days with some potential contributors for Sinhala (one of the two national languages of Sri Lanka). Danishka, as I answered to other contributors, I often suggest the translation of the Debian Installer as a good starting point for a language to get visible in Debian. Allowing users to install in their languages is a great way to put the translation work done for end-user software (GNOME, OOo, KDE, etc.) in light and clearly show that one can use a Debian-based system in the said language. http://d-i.alioth.debian.org/doc/i18n/ is the starting point for those people who want to step in. As I suggested to other potential contributors for Sinhala, this is the thing to read and get used with before we can start working on the "New Language Process" for your language.
