Karmic translations are now open

Hi translators,

I'm pleased to announce that Karmic is now open for translation.

You can now go to


to start translating Ubuntu Karmic into your language.

This will be the first Ubuntu release to feature message sharing
functionality, which will initially allow Jaunty and Karmic translations
to be shared on a template and message basis. This will mean that you no
longer need to translate the same strings in Jaunty and Karmic.
Translate it in one, and your translation will automatically -read
instantly- appear in the other.

This feature will progressively be enabled for all Ubuntu releases. Stay
tuned for the announcement and more information from the Launchpad
Translations team.

During the development cycle language pack updates will be released
regularly twice per week (except for soft freezes for alpha or beta
milestones). The generation of the first language pack has already
started and it will be released in a few days - until then, the PPA
language pack updates for Jaunty will be put on hold in order not to
interfere with this process.

I would encourage you to test those translations in Karmic and report
any problems you might find, either in the ubuntu-translators list [1]
or against the ubuntu-translations project in Launchpad [2].

Happy translating!
