Seeking translations for FreeDOS LSM files
Jerome Shidel shared this update and request about translating LSM data files. (LSM files are small data files that describe a package in the FreeDOS distribution.) Jerome writes: "Thanks to one of the community members, we now have translations in French and Turkish on hand for all of the FreeDOS packages in the repository. These translations will definitely make it into the upcoming 1.3 release and be supported by FDIMPLES for package browsing and installation. Eventually, I’d like to see the online software repository support native language pages as well. But, that will probably have to wait a bit. If you would like to see support for any additional languages, please don’t hesitate to provide them. I know it is quite a bit of work. But, I think the non-English-speaking users will appreciate the effort."
To prevent duplicate effort, let us know what language you are going to provide. Please send an email to the freedos-devel email list. Then, fetch the latest package list CSV from the official software repository. Simply translate the Description, Summary and Keyword fields. When you're finished, let us know. We will be glad to include them. Just remember, the deadline for language submissions will be October 31.
