The I18n Team
Internationalization (I18n) is essential to make OpenStack ubiquitous. The mission of OpenStack I18n team is to make OpenStack ubiquitously accessible to people of all language backgrounds, by enhancing OpenStack software internationalization, providing translation, maintaining a translation platform and managing translation process for better quality of outcomes.
"Internationalization is the process of designing a software application so that it can be adapted to various languages and regions without engineering changes. Localization is the process of adapting internationalized software for a specific region or language by adding locale-specific components and translating text." - from wikipedia.
The OpenStack I18n team will take responsible for the I18n and L10n of OpenStack. Our work will include:
- Translation of documentations, messages, websites, and etc.
- Translation platform maintenance and enhancements
- I18n test
