Thanks Sweta and Ankit!

Gujarati language has a mature past of localizing desktop and it will be great if major Gujarati localization communities are sitting together to discuss and work on Fuel for their language. Please visit the link to go through the steps of fuel:


So, first, please translate the pot file according to the current norms and trends for the localized applications covered in fuel. By providing current translation it will be easier to understand the problem of standardization and inconsistency in the languages.

Since it is a project for standardization so its success depends upon how many org/communities/localizers support we can get so that it can be implemented futher easily to get a standardized desktop for Gujarati langauage.

Adding FUEL list in the CC. Fuel team might guide us in this I guess, as they own the FUEL project...

Rajesh, is co-ordinating the FUEL project. Rajesh, let's know if you have any suggestion for us (Gujarati community), on how to go ahead with the FUEL translation evaluation phase!

Hi Sweta,

Welcome to the list and Gujarati Localization project!

Firstly, I would like to congratulate Kartik and Sweta for completing KDE essentials translations and getting Gujarati included in KDE upstream. Great job guys! :)

With respect to FUEL, I am really excited to see the standardization of Gujarati terms. Sweta, thanks for taking an initiative towards this project as well. I guess we might need to conduct some meeting, somewhere which is preferable to everyone to get this going. To conduct the FUEL - standardization meet, we need everyone from Gujarti Localization community. It would be great if we can involve some Gujarati linguist people too in this meet. Kartik, what would you recommend about this?

Everyone from the group is encouraged to participate in this discussion!

Let's know your inputs!
