> Hi,
> I have came a cross an issue that I didn't see discussed in this
> mailing list, but if there was such a discussion before please point
> me to it.
> First I have noticed that in previous and latest Ubuntu release that
> Gnome translation is much better that I see in Fedora 8 and 9. I
> wondered why and contacted croatian gnome translation team. The reason
> is that they use Ubuntu Launchpad to do the translations and so all
> translation are not automatically pushed to upstream gnome.
> I feel that this is broken by design. There are options to export
> translations from Lauchpad and we are working on getting them to
> upstream Gnome right now. I can only guess but I suspect that our
> translation team is not the only one caught in this "lost in
> translation" Lauchpad trap. There are probably lots of translation
> teams around the world using launchpad to do their translations.
> So my questions is - has there been any talk with Ubuntu developers
> and translators regarding this? Do you think this is an issue? Why?
> How is translation in Fedora handling translation and upstream?
> Thank you for your time,
> Valent, croatian Fedora Ambassador.
