I have been in discussions with Nick Moffitt, an Ubuntu mailing list admin, 
regarding the establishment of a list for English translators. We agreed that 
it is best to have a single list to unify the various translation groups. 
Written English, particularly within the Commonwealth, is mostly consistent. 
Hence, it makes sense to have a single communications channel to enable 
everyone to co-operate and co-ordinate their efforts.

This list is not intended to enforce one single English translation. However, 
it may be most practical to first focus on a comprehensive en-GB translation, 
which can then form the basis of other dialects such as en-AU, en-IN, en-ZA 
and en-CA.

The mailing list can be found at

"An individual can easily switch to Firefox. But doing that on a corporate 
level is a disaster. All kinds of internal applications are dependent on IE. 
They never tested them against Firefox or Mozilla because they never thought 
about it and now they are kind of hooked - that was Microsoft's plan."
