Subject: Help improve Rockbox - Call for translators

Help improve Rockbox - Call for translators

With a Rockbox release around the corner, now is the time to jump in and
help where you can. As the translation maintainer, I'll focus on this angle.

One of the ways in which you can help out Rockbox without having to know
programming is to translate Rockbox. The easiest way to do this is to
simply point your browser at http://rasher.dk/rockbox/translate/ click on
the language you can translate to and follow the directions. Releasing
Rockbox with good translations would be very nice, so pitch in where you can!

Also check out errors in languages by clicking on the small
exclamation-mark sign next to each language name. These will have to be
fixed by manually editing the language file source.

Currently, a good number of languages are quite good, but a lot are also
in need of updates, some more than other - particularly bad are Afrikaans,
Turkish, Slovenian, Arabic and Hindi.

You are required to be a native speaker of the language, and you will have
to submit the result to the Rockbox tracker
(http://www.rockbox.org/tracker/) under your full name. See also
http://www.rockbox.org/twiki/bin/view/Main/LangFiles for all the details
about language files.

After you've posted your updates, remember to keep an eye on the status
page to see if any changes are made before the release.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask me, or on the mailing list.
