I’m particularly happy to announce that the Brazilian team managed to get their translation of the Ubuntu Packaging Guide up to more than 70% of completion, which is the magic threshold to get it accepted and posted on developer.ubuntu.com. This means that our current list of available languages is:
- Spanish (99%)
- Russian (85%)
- Brazilian Portuguese (74%)
You can view the individual forms of the Packaging Guide in Brazilian Portuguese here:
Right at the start I said that I was “particularly happy” about this translation. That’s because I recently picked up a little bit of Portuguese. Mostly useful sentences like “Meu irmão gosta de cerveja” or “O leão escreve cartas”. Thanks Duolingo!
A big big big “obrigado” to the tireless Brazilian Portuguese translators. You all are heroes! This is great news for everyone who wants to get involved in Ubuntu development, as it smoothes the first steps considerably.
You can help out with translations. Just head to the Packaging Guide’s translation page in Launchpad, pick your language and get started. Current runners-up to the translations mentioned earlier are:
- German (32%)
- Japanese (15%)
- French (7%)
- Indonesian (5%)
- Dutch (4%)
The available translations are not entirely complete yet either, so please do get involved.
