Globalization (G11n) group, we are making this happen. The efforts are huge, and kudos to
all our contributors.If you are a non-English user in Fedora and want to help improve
translations in your native language, this is your time to contribute! A virtual Fedora
translation sprint is coming up soon for Fedora 24 GUI applications.
Although it is a virtual event, if there are more contributors at a single location, they
can gather together at an available place and work together.If any Ambassadors have this
plan, please contact the G11n list with your requirements.
The translation sprint is happening according to the Fedora 24 schedule. There is a good
chance to get your own contributions into Fedora 24!
So what are you waiting for? The vFAD is starting from April 1 – 5, 2016. Not sure how to
contribute? Have a look at our new article published on the CommBlog.>
Thanks for sharing this with the list, Jona! This is definitely an
awesome opportunity to help contribute to Fedora for anyone with
As of now, there's also a pretty awesome badge people can earn by
participating in this vFAD too!
