Dear translation team,

Goal related to localization".
You're welcome to discuss this proposal here, in IRC (fedora-i18n) or on

# What is your proposal?
Localization is a good way to embed new contributors and reach new
users. For years, it has been really difficult to get global
localization data to discuss on facts. I'd like us to discuss about how
the Fedora community can be innovative in this field too, and why we
need more localization discussion project wide.
As the objective of Mindshare is "Mindshare Teams are focused on helping
our community grow both the number of users and contributors. The teams
in Mindshare are each focused on a different aspect of this goal.", I
also wonder how to include the localization teams in the fedora governance.
We can now access three kinds of localization statistics:
* [AppData translation
* [Zanata translation
* [RPM translation
I'd present the results of these statistics and animate a collective
* imagine collective goals we could have about localization, both about
the Fedora project itself than globally in the Linux ecosystem
* Fedora project itself goals:
* What part of our communication should be multilingual? One example
* What part of our tools should be multilingual?
* Do we want translation targets for a few major languages?
* For our key packages, do we have sufficient translation support
(software, docs, website)?
* Linux ecosystem goals:
* Do we need to enable support for minority languages? Do we need to
actively support some language communities so they exist in the cyberspace?
* Do we want to host the translation of some projects?
* Do we want to create a giant translation memory and other translator
related tools to help contributors?
* Do we want to help the Linux community to translate .desktop and
appstream content? (Opensuse started something
* decide if having localization team part of Mindshare can be of any
help to the project
# Who _in addition to the speaker_ needs to be in the room for this to
Audience people: * Internationalization and localization contributors
for their knowledge of language support (@pravins, @petersen, @suanand,
@jonatoni , sorry not to quote everyone).
* Fedora council for discussions on goals (specific ping: @bex , @mattdm
, @sumantrom , @bcotton )
* Fedora Mindshare for outreach experience (specific ping: @x3mboy who
wanted to translate podcasts, @codeblock who interacted with l10n teams
about the new websites)
# Is this a…
* 25 min **Talk**
* followed by a 1 hour and 30 min: **Workshop**
# Anything else we need to know?
Anyone is welcome to help to analyse the statistics data. I can be found
on fedora-i18n, it's quite a lot of files and handling it for a
presentation is tricky.
This probably is a challenging subject, having someone from council to
help the discussion animation would help a lot!
