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.

is an abbreviation of the term "Localization" by means of a so called numeronym, a way of replacing the middle letters of a word (in case 'ocalizatio') by naming the number of letters between the first and last letter of that word (in case 10): Localization

Language list

Refer to Zanata Language List for an overview of how many languages are available and have substantial translation of our essential software. Old Transifex list

Mailing list

There are some mailing lists that interest members of the Fedora L10 Project.

  • The main list is trans list (archive), which holds discussions about translations, team coordination, etc.
  • Some issues are discussed at i18n list. If you are interested in input methods, international fonts, etc, you would want to join this as well.

IRC channel



Both of these schedules include translation freeze dates, which are dates that translations are picked up for adding them into the product.

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 corresponding 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.
