Installing Swahili Language Pack for Firefox 1.0.6To install the Swahili (sw-TZ) Language Pack in Firefox download the files sw-TZ.xpi and switch-locales-1.0.xpi from the development area. Open File -> Install both XPIs. You should get a new menu under Tools that allows you to switch between languages. The language pack has been tested with Firefox 1.0.6 in WinXP and Ubuntu 5.0.4.
The following error
*** getItemProperty failing for lack of an item. This means getResourceForItem failed to locate a resource for aItemID (item ID = file:///home/aep/sw-TZ.xpi, property = disabled)
appears when installing the Language Pack in Firefox 1.0.2 (version released with Ubuntu)

Migration of Jambo OpenOffice 1.1.3 to 2.0here.
In order to migrate the localization of 1.1.3 to 2.0, a Swahili compendium of PO messages has been created. The compendium contains 13237 translated messages and 806 fuzzy translations. Using gettext tools as msginit and msgmerge the compendium was merged with OpenOffice.org 2.0 PO templates.
A graphic result of the migration is available here. 68% of the GUI has been automatically translated from Jambo OOo 1.1.3 to 2.0. Help files remain mostly unstranslated (8% translated). All the files are available for download here

Blog in CMS+46We have added a simple Blog feature to our Content Management System. Tired of looking for a good CMS to support our work, we decided to develop our own system. As far as we know, CMS46 is the first system of its kind that has been designed with multi-lingual support from the very early begining.
