And now for another boring self-introduction. ^_^
Hi, my name is Sindre Wetjen, and i Live in Oslo, Norway. Currently i am a
Student at the University here (University in Oslo), in a IT program
called IT-SLP (IT - Language, Logic or Psychology). The best way to
describe the program would perhaps be as an AI program. Because of this i
also have official training in Java, XHTML/CSS and Lisp (+ some special
academic languages). I also have learned some C/C++ on my own, and write
Gtk-apps with Gtkmm. One c++/gtkmm project I am currently working on,
witch is in a early state, is a program i call Linjap
(http://linjap.berlios.de For more info).
I have been an Fedora users since Fedora Core 2, and i thought that
translation anything i can into my native language (Norwegian) would be a
great way to give back to the project that have given me such a great
distro for so many years. And that is why i am trying to join the cvsl10n
group. Even thou I am new to the translating business, i don't think that
the languages will pose a problem for me, since i am a fairly competent in
the languages that I will be translating from/to. Eventually i would like
to contribute more back to the project in form of packing and programming,
but i think starting here is the best way to go about it =)

And now for something completely different. (and hopefully less boring)
Hi Translation Team,
At your earliest convenience please fill the name of the additional
person from your team that would like to attend the Fedora 11
Retrospective. This meeting will be a conference call to talk about the
good and not so good of the Fedora 11 release cycle in with the hope
that we can make Fedora 12 even better!
If the team lead is not able to attend please substitute another person
on the sign-up page below so that there are two people from each team.
one of the steps to contribute to translate the fedora site is to visit this page http://translate.fedoraproject.org/teams/ and "if there is a special mailing list for your language. If yes, subscribe to that too" when i clicked on Arabic it gave me

Is bugzilla a good way to ask for clarifications about a couple of strings in
libvirt or should they be mailed somewhere?

The URL above links to a wonderful note from Jim Whitehurst, President
and CEO of Red Hat, congratulating the community on the release of
Fedora 11. I think it's fantastic that Fedora gets such solid support
from the very top ranks at Red Hat, directly on the company's press
site. One thing that is always in the back of my head, as we work
through all the various release bits, is that I know on release day
Red Hat's CEO -- just like thousands of other people -- is going to
download Fedora and take it for a ride.
Although Jim singled out some specific areas in his blog that
immediately impressed him about Fedora 11, from our phone
conversations I know that he's very proud of the work every team in
Fedora does. He is genuinely passionate about Fedora, and that's due
to *your* superb efforts as part of our large extended family of
Thanks to all of you for making this release such an incredible
experience. I hope you enjoy Fedora 11 too, and I'm very excited
about working with all of you on Fedora 12!

Hi all :)
Fedora translators have done incredible work getting Publican's "Common
Content" sections into their languages. Due to your efforts, Publican
can now support 37 languages other than English 
Publican also relies on word lists for various languages that are
produced by the Docbook project upstream of us . These stylesheet
files provide around 150 common words like "chapter", "index", "warning"
-- mostly labels and headings that are not part of the text itself.
While stylesheets exist for nearly every language for which Fedora
documentation exists, there are a small number of exceptions. No
stylesheet exists yet for:
Unfortunately, the nature of these stylesheets makes our usual
translation mechanism (through PO files) difficult, since these are
really only lists of isolated words, with no context whatsoever, and
these words are structured in a way that makes them appear as empty
strings in PO files!  Finally, development of these stylesheets takes
place upstream, and not in the Fedora project itself.
With all this in mind, I've put together a spreadsheet of the words that
need translating, with some explanatory notes in English, and uploaded
it to my fedorapeople page here:
I already have volunteers to help with Malay. Is there anyone who can
help out with 150 words in any of the other five languages on the list
I hope to take any spreadsheets that I receive, transfer the results
into properly formatted stylesheets, and get these included into the
docbook project upstream.
Please let me know if you'd like to help.
PS: if you want to see the stylesheets already in Fedora and their
contents, make sure you have the docbook-style-xsl package installed.
You will find the stylesheets in a directory named like
/usr/share/sgml/docbook/xsl-stylesheets-1.74.0/common (the number at the
end of xsl-stylesheets-1.74.0 will vary, depending on the version of the
package on your system)
 https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Publican/Common_Content -- does your
language have green ticks yet? :)
 for example, the entry for "Appendix" is "<gentext key="Appendix"
text="Appendix"/>". Note that the text is *inside* the tag, not between

My name Zhang Wei and I'm from China. I'm now a student major in Micro Electronic.I have use Fedora for more than one year.Fedora is pretty good so I hope I can do something help,maybe translate English into Chinese. but I don't know how can I start.
Thanks Pravin for posting it.
I feel obliged also to mention glibc/localedata/show-ucs-data.c in this context which does inline decoding of the ucs2 I believe.
I don't think it is shipped with glibc so one probably has to compile it oneself - so having a portable python implementation is good.
