Press Release 98:     30. March 2023

OSGeoLive translations will soon move from transifex to a OSGeo hosted 
deployment of weblate [1]. Please do not translate at transifex [2] 

Please join the translation team. You only need your OSGeo-ID to login.

If you do not have an OSGeo-ID please have a look at:

Create your own OSGeo-ID here https://id.osgeo.org/ldap/create . You can 
ask Vicky for the mantra. Please send a mail with subject "mantra for 
OSGeoLive" to vicky (dot) vergara (at) osgeo (dot) org. And please read 
the Getting started guide before 

It is easy to translate via weblate. And you will discover that it is 
fun. And you will see that there are other projects already.


You find the instructions for translators here: 

We can always add new instructions, give us feedback based on your 
experience on weblate. Please subscribe to: 
https://lists.osgeo.org/mailman/listinfo/osgeolive-doc where we, 
translators and documentation reviewers, can interact.

Some languages are already available on weblate. Others are on the way, 
by getting translations done on transifex:

- sv
- pt
- nl
- tr
- zh

Some we haven't decided yet as not much work was done in transifex, but 
if you are up to the task, we can also get what has been translated on 

- polish
- russan

Please note that we do not use language extension any more, for example, 
only "pt" and not "pt_BR".

You are welcome to join our team!

It is one possibility to give something back to the project you like.
