[edit] Echo-i18n-48px.png The Fedora Internationalization (I18N) Project

The Fedora I18N project works on internationalization (i18n) to support the localization (l10n) of Fedora in many languages.

Translation of Fedora software and documentation are handled by the Fedora L10N project .

The goals of the Project are to:

  • Develop, package, and maintain applications like input methods for different languages
  • Improve applications and utilities to support and process different languages
  • Quality-assure that existing applications meet i18n standards
  • Support the infrastructure of the Fedora Localization Project

[edit] Vision Statement

"Fedora i18n makes technology accessible and attractive for users of every language"

[edit] Joining the Fedora Internationalization Project

  • To learn how to join Fedora Internationalization Project, please refer to our Join page.

[edit] Packages

Fedora I18n maintains a lot of Fedora packages related to i18n. There is a FAS pseudo-user i18n-team to help track our bugs.

[edit] Technologies

[edit] Input Methods

Input Methods are used to input Asian and other languages.

[edit] Fonts

A page of the Fonts Special Interest Group

  • See I18N/Fonts for Asian fonts in Fedora
  • there are many free/libre international fonts, already referenced in fontconfig defaults or packaged by other major distributions, languishing in the Fedora wishlist in wait for a packager.
  • Lohit. The Lohit fonts are a family of Indic fonts licensed under OFL 1.1.
  • Liberation Project The Liberation fonts are a family of Latin, Greek and Cyrillic fonts licensed under a free/libre license.
Idea.png
Pango language order
The language priority order that pango uses to render text can be set with the environment variable PANGO_LANGUAGE. For example setting PANGO_LANGUAGE to "ja:zh:ko" would prefer Japanese fonts, then Chinese and then Korean.


Idea.png
Fonts in Fedora
The Fonts SIG takes loving care of Fedora fonts. Please join this special interest group if you are interested in creating, improving, packaging, or just suggesting a font. Any help will be appreciated.
