Nice to test
Bugs you might hit or additional situations that are nice to test:
- (as_IN)(gtk)(Translation) - Translation Error with "????" appearing
- (te_IN) Disk format message is out of screen during installation
- No translation on Login-Page of the reboot-menu
- (all languages) yum untranslated words
- Semi-translated messages (translated strings missing)
Specific L10N bugs like typos and translation mistakes should be directly reported to the local translation team mailing list or a bug report should be filed at Bugzilla against the related language. General bugs that affect all languages like strings not marked for translation, downstream patching that breaks translations and input method issues should be filed against the related package. If you are unsure about exactly how to file the report or what other information to include, just ask on IRC and we will help you.
How to file bugs
