Off-topic: Translators wanted for opensource

Samuel Murray (Groenkloof)

G'day everyone

I noticed that this project is quite active on Source Forge, and for
that reason I'd like to tell you about our translation project.  I'm
also hoping that some of you might be able to help us with translations
or ideas.

The project is called Decathlon because we want to encourage people who
feel passionate about their language to translate up to ten or more
opensource programs into their languages in 2008.  This year, we limit
our selection of translated programs to applications aimed at end-users,
and preferably programs that run on multiple platforms.

All translations are done in our web-based translations system, Pootle.
  The value of Pootle is that a team of translators can work together on
a single file.  Pootle also has quality checking features, to ensure
that translations don't break the software they are used in.   Pootle
requires the Gettext PO format, but we can convert certain other formats
to and from PO.

More information about the Decathlon project can be found here:

Our Pootle server is here:

I look forward to hearing from anyone who is interested.  You are
welcome to pass this e-mail on to anyone you think may be interested.
