We're pleased to announce that UNR translations are now open for Karmic.
This is being done as part of the public UNR Karmic translations spec
. Previously we had announced that translations were open in the
upstream project , which should be the primary target for ongoing
This is now the second step: opening up downstream Karmic translations
for corrections and updates through the usual language pack mechanism.
Let me stress this again: the upstream project should still be the
primary source for translation in Karmic and Karmic+1, and those
translations will then flow downstream to the distribution, where we
recommend that only bug fixes are performed.
If you want to start translating for a new language during the stable
release, we also recommend doing this upstream and then using the global
suggestions feature (point and click) to translate downstream and let
the new language be included in the regular language packs.
The reason we adopted this approach is to minimize later work to
upstream (i.e. applying downstream translation fixes to the upstream
project) Karmic translation work.
Here you'll find the links to the translations:
We also mentioned webfav in the past, which is a Firefox extension to
bookmark favourites that contains one translatable string. We're still
working on this, as it requires non-trivial packaging changes for
exporting the translations to the language packs. The release date being
near, it is very unlikely that this is done for Karmic. On the positive
side, the extension has already got translations for 30 languages.

David and Kyle.
