I'm trying to get all Dutch translators together in an effort to try and
coordinate our work and to expand it to not just translating the
software but also the documentation and the website. For this I've
created a new page on the wiki and asked new people to help.
I would like to ask all Dutch translators to add themselves to the
wiki-page (if you don't know how, you may always mail me), in order that
we can see the amount of active translators around nowadays.
Just to let you know, we've also created a channel on freenode:
#fedora-nl if you have any questions.
Thanks in advance,
Signed up at the sign up and gave my key, etc.
Trying to access the cvs, but I have absolutely no experience with cvs
whatever (except the local drugstore chain).
So I followed the instructions on the page indicated
And then saw a long list of .po files go by in my terminal.
But I haven´t the slightest idea what to do beyond that....
and the list was so long and went by so fast...
Furthermore, I´ve never worked with po files, either. I yummed some gui
tools for that, so, perhaps I´ll figure that out.
I am an experienced translator (and interpreter), but have not worked
with software localization at all (trying to cut my
teeth here, really, to help my favorite OS, AND gain valuable experience...)
I´ve been using Linux since RH7.0 and Fedora since FC1, but am nothing
like a linux guru/expert, by any means.
I downloaded some gui CVS tools, too. I have cervisia and lincvs.
Maybe someone could clue me in on their use or something?
I really have no comprehension of cvs at all....

Currently f.r.c contains published original version of Release Notes and errata.
Please correct list of available translation of Release Notes shipped with FC5:
- Add Russian variant to list
- Publish real versions shipped with FC5 (located locally in /usr/share/doc/fedora-release-5/)
(in shipped variant topic "28. Fedora Project - Freedom to the Core" is translated into Russian)
Thank you in advance,

Some of u my know me, some won't. I've been on this project for almost 2
years now, translating to Dutch.
Recently I also signed up to the Fedora Documentation Project, to start
translating the docs and release notes. But with FC6 coming up, I've
seen that not to much has been translated there at the moment. We can
count the number of translated release notes on one hand. FDP and
myself would like to see this expanded so a lot more languages get there
own release notes in FC6. And because we are the translators of the
programs, why can't we do the release notes as well? This is what we're
good at, and wouldn't it be nice to open up Firefox on FC6 and be
greeted with the release notes in your language! :)
For those who think they'll have to learn something new, don't be
worried, all translation is done by .po-files, as with
If you think you might be interested in helping out with the
translation, feel free to drop by #fedora-docs or #fedora-l10n on

to try. :)
I signed up into Fedora Translation Project (Brazilian-Portuguese) a week
before, but I still can't to access to the CVS.
I'm thinking this is a long time to CVS account to be approved. Is it
I need a confirmation to start to work... :)
Can someone help me, please?

I've updated the Docs Project section in the Translation Quick Start
Guide to match current protocols. Could any translators for the
existing versions (it, pt, pt_BR) check out the module and update the PO
files so I can post the new version on the Web? Thank you!
