Translation vFAD for Fedora 26

I am also a member of translation group of Fedora (ex-L10n now G11n).

From April 11 to 17 we'll have a vFAD (virtual Fedora Activity Day) to translate Fedora 26. You can read here in MailingList and here in wiki's page for more information.

"Packages groups are up-to-date on Zanata: http://fedora.zanata.org We suggest you to translate Priority list first, but you're welcome to translate any software." cit. Jean-Baptiste

However Fedora is always in need of translators, if you want to help us you can read here and here. This is the perfect chance to get involved in Fedora Project... We'll have a fantastic Badge to add of our collection.

See you soon!

"Listen to my story" with Fedora Project

In the 2014 I was looking for a linux distro could do to my case. For work reasons and hobby I used mainly MS Windows. As you can read in the About Me page, the linux world was not new for me, indeed, just that I wanted to try something else.

I had a couple of requirements, key points:

  • it was stable
  • it was safe
  • it was updated
  • it was easy to install and use

Several options have been considered, obviously are not here to feed a distro-wars that already employ different internet places, the choice fell on Fedora Linux. Why? MY because it is banal, unconscious for some reason I always "admired" Red Hat, Fedora accordingly.

As usual, after the first start, I try the Internet solutions on the initial steps to follow.

I find people well disposed to help me and I notice this invitation to join the Project.

In less than a week I participate in the first local meeting. After two weeks I am already enrolled in FAS. After a few months I enrolled among the translators. After a year I enrolled among websites developers. After another 2 years I'm joining the Ambassadors group.

The desire to make you forward. The enthusiasm elevates you. The Fedora Project rewards you.

The satisfaction of being able to do something, even very small, but that something may go on to a HUGE machinery as the Fedora project, is a feeling you can not describe but only advise you to try it.

What aspects? Join to Fedora Project!
