Hi translators,

I am pleased to announce that our current development release, Ubuntu
Quantal, is now open for translation:


Some additional information that will be useful for translators:

- Translation schedule. Remember that according to the release schedule
[1] translatable messages might be subject to change until the
TranslationDeadline[2], on the week of the 9th of October.
TranslationDeadline is a new concept, unifying the former
NonLanguagePackTranslationDeadline and the

- 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.

- KDE is not translatable anymore on Launchpad. As KDE packages have
moved to the Universe repository, they are not going to be translatable
for Quantal [4]. KDE packages will still contain upstream translations,
so you are encouraged to contribute directly to the KDE project.

- Test and report bugs. If you notice any issues (e.g. untranslated
strings or applications), do check with the translation team for your
language [5] first. If you think it is a genuine bug, please report it [6].

- Learn more. Learn how to start translating Ubuntu and enable millions
to use it in their language [7].
