This month's subject: 2013 is nearly there. Rally your translation!
Hello, dear translatewiki.net user.
This is the http://translatewiki.net e-mail newsletter for November 2012. It features news on MediaWiki localisation and changes in supported products. To thank you, and to further our goals, we're also starting a Translation Rally within hours. Come on, join in!
The second Translation Rally of 2012 starts on December 21, 2012 22:00 UTC and will run until December 31, 2012 00:00 UTC. This rally is sponsored by Wikimedia Nederland, the Dutch Wikimedia chapter. We are very grateful for this continued support! Check out the project page for more details.
The previous rally resulted in nearly 66,000 new translations by 188 participants. I'm sure we can do even better this time. 100,000 is still the magic number :).
Product support and staff
This time things in this section are pretty exiting, so we hope that you have read up to here!
All of translatewiki.net's configuration is now available in a Git repository, so you can contribute there too if you like. No pressure, just possible.
Lots of development to improve the user experience for translators is ongoing on the translation user interface redesign project conducted by the Wikimedia Foundation Language Engineering team. A new message list and a redesigned translation editor are in alpha stage and interested users can activate them. A change to "tux=0" in the previous link, gets you back to using the old interface. Watch out: Things probably don't work as expected yet. There's no need to report bugs yet. We do not recommend that you use it for making many translations yet.
Support for StatusNet was dropped following an announcement.
If you are a developer of a promising Free and Open Source Software product and you are looking for a great community to localise your product, please get in touch with us!
More detailed news can be found on our News page. Follow translatewiki on Twitter for the latest news. We welcome feedback about this newsletter. Please let us know by sending a reply to this mail. We will try to accommodate your wishes.
Finally, of our about 9,000 registered users, only 4,450 people are registered as translator. If you are not a translator yet, please complete the steps that will get you the status of translatewiki.net translator and allow you to be a localisation hero!
The best wishes for 2013. May it be your best year ever!
