Karmic Translations Are Now Open

We are pleased to announce that Karmic is now open for translation.

You can now go to


to start translating Ubuntu Karmic into your language.

This will be the first Ubuntu release to feature message sharing functionality, which will initially allow Jaunty and Karmic translations to be shared on a template and message basis. This will mean that you no longer need to translate the same strings in Jaunty and Karmic. Translate it in one, and your translation will automatically -read instantly- appear in the other.

This feature will progressively be enabled for all Ubuntu releases. Stay tuned for the announcement and more information from the Launchpad Translations team.

During the development cycle language pack updates will be released regularly twice per week (except for soft freezes for alpha or beta milestones). The generation of the first language pack has already started and it will be released in a few days – until then, the PPA language pack updates for Jaunty will be put on hold in order not to interfere with this process.

You are encouraged to test those translations in Karmic and report any problems you might find, either in the ubuntu-translators list or against the ubuntu-translations project in Launchpad.

Happy translating!
