Who are we and what we do?

Please use Talk page for discussions on term G11N.

LISA described globalisation as "the global product development cycle, where internationalisation includes the planning and preparation stages for a product and localisation the actual adaptation of the product for a specific market.

But from Fedora point of view G11n is collaboration effort from different operating groups in Fedora. The main focus is to coordinate and support community in #Internationalization (i18n), #Localization (l10n), Zanata and FLTG area to provide effective workflow on Globalisation for Fedora project.

The group members consists of representatives from #Internationalization-i18n, #Localization-l10n, #Zanata and #Fltg. We welcome anyone who are interested as well.
