Hi David, 

I am a little confused regarding how to use the language packs ( or more importantly) how the language packs fit into the whole translation realm. Last week you did manage to add for me the Bemba language pack, I believe. Then this email is announcing the packs for next Ubuntu release. I have Ubuntu 11.04 installed. How do I test my translations in Ubuntu 11.04 as regards the usage of the language packs? I think I need a little more education on this aspect. How do I get the Language pack that contains Bemba into my Ubuntu 11.04 installation?

Hi translators, 

After the first language packs have now been generated, I am pleased to 
announce that our current development release, Ubuntu Oneiric, is now 
open for translation at: 


* Translation schedule. Remember that according to the release 
schedule [1] translatable messages might be subject to change 
until the User Interface Freeze [2] on the week of the 25th of 
* Language packs. During the development cycle, language packs 
containing translations will be released twice per week [3] 
except for the freeze periods. This will allow users and 
translators to quickly see and test the results of translations. 
* Test and report bugs. If you notice any issues (e.g. 
untranslated strings or applications), do check with the 
translation team for your language [4] first. If you think it is 
a genuine bug, please report it [5]. 
* Learn More. Learn how to start translating Ubuntu [6] and enable 
millions to use it in their language. 

Happy translating!
