Translation and localisation
If your first language is not English but you have strong English skills, you can make a huge contribution by helping to translate Ubuntu applications into your first language. Even if you just translate a few lines you can make a difference to someone in your own country who is learning about computers and free software.
- Translate software in Ubuntu into your language using Launchpad. Join the Ubuntu-Translators mailing list to stay in touch with other Ubuntu translators.
- Translate documents written by the documentation team. This can also be done using Launchpad
- Discuss translation, fonts and other issues with your local community team.
When you find a solution to a problem, you can help others by writing about your experience. Some of the most constructive ways to get involved in the Ubuntu documentation community might be:
- Take notes as you puzzle through a problem. If documentation already exists, you can extend or improve it. If it doesn't, go ahead and add a page in the help wiki, and write up the answer making it available to everyone.
- Read through the documentation in the Ubuntu forums, check them for accuracy, then add your changes to the wiki. You can read the Wiki Guide for help with this.
- Join the Ubuntu documentation team. Visit the documentation team website for hints and tips on how to get started.
