Dear OLPC-devel and localizers,

Please note that the Sugar Labs Translation Team has been reaching out
to upstream projects to enhance complete L10n of dual-boot images like
the upcoming 11.2.0 build from OLPC.

Upstream L10n tracking
This project's "strings"  are not for translation, but rather serve as
"tracking tickets" for important upstream GNOME packages (and

Upstream POT templates
Local hosting of AbiWord and GNASH PO files to enhance collaboration
on L10n of these upstream projects that do not have their own hosted
L10n tools.  It is still necessary to submit completed PO files to
their respective developer mailing lists for commit, but Pootle
provides many advantages for localizers and enhances collaboration
between Sugar Labs / OLPC and these upstream communities.

We've not forgotten the downstream either.
These are eToys-baseed lesson plans from Waveplace.

Documentation on these outreach efforts is under development on the wiki:

Dear AbiWord devs and localizers,

The existing AbiWord PO files for the following languages have been
uploaded to the Sugar Labs Pootle server with the following (hopefully
self-explanatory) names:


They can be found under the language name at this link:

Please review your languages uploaded PO files (particularly the
msgfmt checks on the Reveiw tab).  Many strings that were
automatically transferred in version upgrades are "fuzzy" and need
work, some are badly matched/translated by the fuzzy matching
algorithm of the merge tools.
