bullet1 Firefox in Swahili - A community effort (II)

Published: 3 Mar 2009

A few months ago, IT46 joined a community effort to build Firefox 3.1 in Swahili language. The effort comes from the Tanzanian Linux User Group, a grass-root organization that wants to promote open source and software in Swahili language.

Today, we have completed the first full build of the software that contains 93% of the total strings. Screenshoots of the software are available here. There is still some work pending regarding acceleration keys and reviewing the glossary for consistency among translators, but the software should be ready for public testing in less than one month.

Congrats to Paul, Jonathan M, Bibiana, Eric, Sebastian, Emanuel, Aziz and Jonathan N. for the good work!
