Now I am interested:
How many people on this mailing list are interested in doing

I translate for Ubuntu using Rosetta for Sanskrit and Marathi. I am
not sure how it is integrated eventually but I would like to know.
We are doing the translation for each package and the Rosetta
interface is simple, nice and well organized.
Welcome, || स्वक्ष || ! It's really great to see you
posting here. Keep it up. :)
I'd like to talk more with you about the Unicode issues for your
language, and about possibly using Pootle instead of Rosetta: I've
used both, and I'm very involved with Pootle development now, so I'd
be happy to help with that.
This means joining two more groups, ;), sorry, but they're both
places where you have access to a lot of expertise. You'll meet the
same people there: for example, both Christian and I are members of
both lists. Hopefully we can meet more of our 'new' and 'old' D-W
friends there. :)
would be a great place to post in more detail about the Unicode
issues for your language. Undoubtedly a lot of the packages you're
translating will be used in Debian, and many translators work in
multiple projects, so general translation questions are, I think, on-
topic in any i18n list.
has a very welcoming and helpful community, and the developers are
extremely receptive to suggestions, and will try very hard to do
anything to help the translators. Pootle itself is at:
and it is constantly in development, although already a very powerful
and useful translation tool. The BitTorrent project recently set up
their own Pootle, and I translated their data there. It worked very
well. I've used the main Pootle site extensively.
As I said, || स्वक्ष ||, I'm a member of both lists, and
would be happy to meet you there, and join in the discussion of your
questions. I'll look forward to seeing you there. Send me an email
when you're about to post, and I'll introduce you, if you like. :)
