"What is your role within KDE?"

"Localizes application to Traditional Chinese Ed."

"How and when did you get involved in KDE?"

"On 2000-2-11, I was a student at Morehead State University. It is a tiny town and I have nothing to do. Therefore, I joined Chinese Linux Documentation Project (http://www.linux.org.tw/CLDP/) and talk with couple of my friends like Seventeen Chen (seventeen@cle.linux.org.tw), Platin (platin@ch.ntu.edu.tw). They tell me that I can also try to translate some PO files. Since there is no running project for translating PO files into Traditional Chinese, I start this project (http://i18n.linux.org.tw). Soon after this, I start to translate PO files in KDE and Gnome...."

"What are the problems you encounter while translating?"

"There is only few active translator in our team and all of us can only use our own free time to do this. Also, there are a lot of PO files someone translated long time ago, and they no longer update it. Therefore, the translation progress is quite slow."
