The Fedora Localization Project
The goal of the Fedora Localization Project (FLP) is to bring everything around Fedora (the Software, Documentation, Websites and culture) closer to local communities (countries, languages and in general cultural groups). Usually this involves doing translations via PO files but is certainly not limited to that.
Refer to http://translate.fedoraproject.org/languages for an overview of how many languages are available and have substantial translation of our essential software.

Some more links:
- Teams are currently listed/managed at the translate.fp.o teams page .
There are some mailing lists that interest members of the FLP.
- The main list is fedora-trans-list (archive ), which holds discussions about translations, team coordination, etc.
- Technical issues are discussed at fedora-i18n-list . If you are interested in more than translations, like eg. our websites, bugzilla, the mailing list, etc, you would want to join this as well.
- We've setup the group 'l10n-commits' for those who would like to receive emails for commits in the
/cvs/l10n/repo and various other emails.
- To subscribe, go to your account and add yourself to 'l10n-commits'. Unfortunately the system needs approval, so someone should jump in to approve you, which should happen quickly.
- See L10N/Meetings
Both of these schedules include translation freeze dates, which are dates that translations are picked up for adding them into the product.
Take a look at the L10N/Tasks page and add your name next to an item you are interested in helping out.
Fedora L10N Steering Committee
The Fedora Localization Steering Committee (FLSCo) leads the Fedora Localization Project (FLP). Its mission is to provide the Fedora translators with necessary guidance, and support their efforts to localize the Fedora Project to multiple languages and cultures.
If you have a question, need clarifications or have problems, please contact Fedora L10N Steering Committee.

Bug Reporting, Testing, and Quality Assurance
Before you file a bug, please read through the list of current and previous bugs for the cooresponding software package to determine if your bug has already been filed. If your bug does not exists, enter a bug report using the Bugzilla bug entry page. If your bug exists and has not been fixed, add additional information to the existing bug. If your bug exists and has been fixed, upgrade to the version in the bug report to determine if the bug was properly fixed. If it was not, reopen the bug.
