Hi David

Are any decisions made about the translation deadlines for the
different categories of Ubuntu translations (language pack, other
Launchpad translations etc.).

It would be nice to know if the deadlines will be before, after or
approx. at the same time as the Gnome release.

> Hi translators,

> 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

> 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

> Happy translating!
