Dear OpenERP Contributors and Translators,

We are now approaching the final release of OpenERP v6.0, and Release
Candidate 2 will be out soon.
As some of you are already aware, we have done an extensive cleanup of
the translations terms throughout all OpenERP projects, in order to make
life as easy as possible for translators (much less spurious/incorrect
terms to translate, and more real terms detected)
The current set of terms to translate are finalized, and should only
undergo minor changes until the final release.

Now it is really time for translation teams to organize a complete

Feel free also to request the assignation of a different translation
team to your language, or the removal of an assigned team (opening it up
so anyone from the community is allowed to confirm translations)

Translating and organizing translation teams is explained in details in
the documentation:

For any questions or discussion, please join the openerp-community (or
openerp-expert-localization) mailing-lists.

Let's make OpenERP v6.0 available for everyone in their native language!

Thank you all!
