Ubuntu Natty open for translation

Written for Ubuntu Translations by David Planella on 2010-12-03

After the new Natty Narwhal Alpha 1 pre-release, we are pleased to
announce that Natty is now open for translation:


      * Translation caveats. Remember that according to the release
        schedule [1] translatable messages might be subject to change
        until the User Interface Freeze [2] on the 24th of March.
      * Language packs. During the Natty development cycle, language
        packs containing translations will be released twice per week
        [3] except for the freeze periods. This will allow users and
        translators to quickly see and test the results of translations.
      * Firefox. The first language packs will not yet contain Firefox
        translations. We'll get them in soon as we're adapting to the
        new upstream langpack packaging structure, so that Firefox is
        localized by default as usual.
      * Test and report bugs. If you notice any issues (e.g.
        untranslated strings or applications), do check with the
        translation team [4] for your language first. If you think it is
        a genuine bug, please report it [5].

Happy translating! :-)
