Hello Phu,

You don't mention where you are in Viet Nam but I'd like to point out  
there are very active Linux user groups in Ha Noi and in HCMC.   
Information on the HanoiLUG can be found at   
If you are in Ha Noi I'd urge you to get involved with the group as  
they can help you to start contributing -- and their meetings are  
quite fun too.

I'm sure others on this list will offer concrete suggestions on how to  
start translating.  Thank you for your interest in Linux and Ubuntu.
