We've got three pieces of excellent news about Ubuntu translations in 

1. Gutsy translations are now open.
2. The official repositories will feature daily language pack updates.
3. Translations for future Ubuntu releases will open early.

You can start work on Gutsy translations straight away at:


Daily language pack updates

Throughout Gutsy's development, the Ubuntu team aims to provide daily 
language pack updates through the official repositories. Gutsy users 
will receive these daily updates as standard.

Daily updates will be a great way for Ubuntu translators to see their 
work in place almost straight away. Once Gutsy is released as Ubuntu 
7.10, its official language pack updates will be sent once a month.

Opening translations early in the release cycle

Starting with Gutsy, we will open translations for each Ubuntu release 
as soon as the Ubuntu distro team is ready.

In the past, we had to take Launchpad offline in order to import the 
translation files for each new Ubuntu release. Finding a suitable time 
to take Launchpad offline led to a delay in opening the translations. 
Thanks to some great work from the Translations team, we can now import 
translation files without taking Launchpad offline.

This is fantastic news for everyone working on Ubuntu translations!
