It's all about communication

One of the things we talked about in the translations roundtables at the last UDS was about having better communications and a more transparent translations process.

I'd like to make Karmic the best release in translations so far, and I'd like people to be able to meet and discuss anything related to Ubuntu translations in real time.

The idea is, if there are any translations issues (imports not working, critical upstream/downstream translation bugs, new packages for translation, etc.) we can talk about them in a fluent way and catch them early in the process.

Or if you've got any suggestions or ideas related to Ubuntu translations, they are also always welcome.

With this in mind, I've kicked off regular translation meetings on #ubuntu-meeting every two weeks, starting on the 2nd of July:

  • WHAT: Ubuntu Translations Meeting
  • WHERE: #ubuntu-meeting
  • WHEN: starting on Thu 2nd Jul 2009 15:00 UTC, every two weeks on Thursdays
One of the first topics on the agenda will be the opening of Karmic translations, but feel free to add more topics you'd like to discuss either on comments here or on our Ubuntu Translators mailing list.

I'm looking forward to seeing you there!

P.S. And also remember we've also got other communication channels for everything around translating Ubuntu.
