Beginners FOSS localisation manual released on International Translation Day

Sep 30, 2010, 22:02 (0 Talkback[s])

[ Thanks to An Anonymous Reader for this link. ]

"Today is international translation day! As part of the African Network for Localisation (ANLoc), I have been writing a book on the localisation of Free and Open Source Software (FOSS). One of the things we are trying to improve in Africa is the skills for doing software localisation, and of course, there is no better place to develop these skills than in Free and Open Source Software! The first version of the book is almost finished, and I would love to get more feedback. Download it here: http://www.africanlocalisation.net/foss-localisation-manual

"The book isn't terribly detailed and technical, and tries to give a gentle introduction to several aspects of localisation and involvement in FOSS projects."
