GNOME 3.4 Finnish translation weekend

Just a quick note that the merry Finnish localization folks are organizing an (extended) localization weekend, starting today. As a nice step towards ease of use, they're utilizing the long developed, maybe even underused Translatewiki.net platform, or to be precise a separate instance of it. Translatewiki.net is used by MediaWiki (Wikimedia Foundation), StatusNet and other high profile projects. Co-incidentally the main developer of Translatewiki.net is Finnish as well.

Anyway enough of the platform, join the translation frenzy at http://l10n.laxstrom.name/wiki/Gnome_3.4, but do make sure to read the notes at http://muistio.tieke.fi/IYZxesy9uc.

I've promised to help in upstreaming those to git.gnome.org on Sunday. There is additionally a new report about Ubuntu 12.04 LTS translations schedule (to which these GNOME contributions will find their way as well) at the ubuntu-l10n-fin mailing list by Jiri.

Ja sama suomeksi.

Hello,

Seeing your blog post appearing on Planet Debian, I wondered whether you (or someone else in the Finnish GNOME l10n team) would be interested in working to re-complete the Finnish translation of Debian Installer (also used by the Ubuntu installer).

It is currently stalled as the previous translator seems to be MIA.

Please feel free to contact me at bubulle@debian.org. I'm easy to find..:-)
