The African Network for Localisation (ANLoc) - Localise Software sub-project is excited to announce a call for language teams to localise software into ten African languages.

ANLoc Localise Software sub project is embarking on a new localisation initiative and is urgently seeking language teams.
The goal of the Localise Software sub-project is to localise existing Open Source projects into ten African languages.

The ten language teams will be assisted with a small team of technical experts, who will help them with the different localisation processes for each of the software they will be localising.

List of Open Source Software to be localised

  • Firefox (multi platform browser)
  • Fennec (mobile browser)
  • Pootle (online localisation tool)
  • Virtaal (multi platform offline localisation tool)
  • GlossMaster (terminology tool)

We are calling for language teams who want to localise the above list of software into any African language:

The project period is from September 2009 to April 2010, including localisation, review, testing, communication with software developers, releasing the localised software and promoting it.

The Localise Software budget is up to USD2,500 per language team, which covers all costs related to the project for its entire duration, including promoting the localised software in your community.

We accept applications from individuals and organisations. You should apply as a language team. All applications should identify a team lead.
