Had you already seen this inquiry?
Dimitris is the mastermind behind Transifex so I'm forwarding to him and
the translators' list for follow-up. Thanks for your interest!

In release-notes, string 163 (I'm using kbabel) there is a string that
says System | Preferences | Desktop Effects, and d.e. is under System
| Preferences | Look and Feel | Desktop Effects.
By the way, I tested the rawhide and I have problems with compiz/beryl
in a computer where Fedora 8 performs very well with full desktop
Good job with X start-up and shutdown. It's fast now.
And I was waiting for the USB Live media persistence. Release-notes
says it comes now. :-)
It would be useful when replacing desktop computers, for a fast configuration.
Sorry if I send this to the wrong list, but I don't know where to say
thanks to the development team. They are doing a great job release
Many thanks to the development team !!!
A tiny wish for Transifex:
The edit widget where the local file goes, is too short. Is it
possible to have a wider one ?
It is necessary to check that the selected file is the correct one.
File names under my linux are like:
and it's too long for that widget's length. Would be nice to see the
full path without scrolling the edit widget.

Summary: Temporarily remove system-config-keyboard from Transifex
Soo, I was not able to find the page with what should I include in request for
Transifex module*, so hopefully I'll not miss anything here.
Project name: system-config-keyboard
(It's a fedorahosted hosted project).
Contributor access (transif user already has write access)
Only branch that is to be included in transifex is "trunk"
Transifex should only have access these files (Shell glob): */*.po
The project website: https://fedorahosted.org/system-config-keyboard/
PS: The project is probably already added, but hidden; see bug #439090. That one
is to be replaced with this.
*Are there plans to make the translation systems more friendly for maintainers?
I was not able to find a single piece of documentation relevant to people that
would want to add a project at http://translate.fedoraproject.org/, nor in

I'm Atamurat Sariyev from Turkmenistan.
I'm already in ambassador group.
I want to be the maintainer/coordinator of turkmen language.
Right now there is no version of Fedora in Turkmen language.
I want to translate it and make it possible for people in Turkmenistan
to be able
to use Fedora.
Hope to hear from you soon.
Best Regards, Atamurat
I'm from Haifa, Israel. A long time programmer, instructor and consultant
in Unix/Linux systems and haven't contributed much so far (shame on me).
My current goal is to advance the Hebrew translation of Fedora.
Since there are active upstream teams for both KDE (my personal
desktop) and GNOME and both desktops have pretty good BiDi support
and reasonable translation state.
[Note: BiDi == Bidirectional: Hebrew, like Arabic, Farsi and other
similar languages is written right-to-left]
However, there is no Hebrew support at all during installation!
Being late to the F9 game, I've started with the quickest
candidate and translated the comps module. Next week, when no more
commits to code are possible, I'll try to put some time into F9 relnotes
and announcements so we have at least something visible for F9.
My longer goal for Fedora (F10?) is to add Hebrew support to anaconda.
Together with the comps file it will enable complete localized
installation and will lower the barrier to entry in my country.
This will probably require adding BiDi support to anaconda.
While I'm not a pythonist it may be a good chance to start playing
a bit with this language (I had enough of C/C++/Java/Perl/sh)
Two years ago I've added BiDi support (and some Hebrew translation)
to the wesnoth game upstream. This was done via the fribidi library
maintained by Behdad Esfahbod and was pretty easy (wesnoth code is
organized very well)
Hmmm... I haven't seen other BiDi languages use this and add their
translations to this popular game... Arabic? Farsi? hint, hint...
If nobody wants to be the Hebrew team maintainer, I'm willing to do it.

In doing some testing of various things within anaconda, I've come
across a few fringe error cases which we really should be catching and
presenting to the user with something other than a traceback.
Unfortunately, this involves strings :-/
So, there are a few options
1) Leave as a traceback. You'll have to try pretty hard to convince me
this is the right answer ;-)
2) Add the strings, don't mark them for translation. Similar to 1 for
non-English users, but at least not a traceback.
3) Add the strings, mark them, get as much translated as possible.
I'm really up for either 2 or 3 based on what people would prefer.
We'll be building anaconda up until pretty late, so this shouldn't be a
big problem. But I wanted to give people a chance to yell if they had a
PS We're talking about a relatively small (10 at the way outside... I
think I'm at 3 right now) number of strings
I'd like to let the list know that I'm stepping down as the Macedonian
team coordinator for the localization of Fedora in Macedonian. Due to
other increased work and personal related responsibilities i am unable
to continue with the translation work as well as the coordinatorship for
the Macedonian team.
I've already sent an e-mail to our local mailing list so if there is
someone that is willing to step up and take this role I'd be more than
willing to help him out to get started and with any issues that may
arise in the beginning.
Thank you all for the help so far, i appreciate it.
