Hi, everyone!

Nice to see so many people interested in translating Ubuntu already.

I've added a page to the Ubuntu wiki to help coordinate translation
activity: http://wiki.ubuntulinux.org/TranslationTeam.

If you are interested in improving the status of Ubuntu for your
language, the best thing at the moment is to get involved with specific
pieces of software.

The main things I know that need work at the moment are the installer
and GNOME. Both of these have large, well-organised upstream translation
teams, so it's best if we work with the debian-installer translation
team and the GNOME Translation Project as much as possible. Of course,
for messages which are in Ubuntu but not in upstream, we will need to
provide Ubuntu-specific translations.

We're planning to make it possible to translate the Ubuntu website soon.

If you haven't worked on free software translation before, the best way
to get started is to find a piece of software you'd like to see in your
language and work on that.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email the mailing list,
or to email me or to find me on IRC -- I'm usually on #ubuntu, nickname
