Community Member Monday: Battsengel Ichinnorov

It’s time for another LibreOffice contributor interview! Today we speak to Battsengel Ichinnorov, a new TDF member, who helps to localise LibreOffice for Mongolian users…

Where do you live, and are you active on any social media?

I live in Munich, Germany, and I follow The Document Foundation and Libreoffice on Telegram. You can find some of my work on GitHub.

In which areas of the LibreOffice project are you active?

I am translating the wiki and LibreOffice itself into Mongolian (for instance, I made the keyboard layout for Mongolian for Windows: German and English. After this, I will create them for Linux.)

How did you get involved with LibreOffice?

A friend of mine, Dennis Roczeck is a helper and admin on the wiki.

What was your initial experience of contributing to LibreOffice like? What else do you plan to work on?

Everybody has a goal to reach, and mine is a free office for Mongolian people! Firstly I want to build a team and finish the user interface translation, then maybe get involved in development and/or ops and/or devops :-)

What tools do you use for your work?

So I know many tools, but the best is for me for programming, to save time and be productive, is IntelliJ IDEA. Other tools which I use: Atom, Notepad++, ConEmu for WSL in Windows.

What do you do when you’re not working on LibreOffice?

Meet my friends and go hiking in the Alps, and study programming languages or test new technologies. At the moment I’m looking at Docker, Kubernetes and Terraform in the cloud.

Thanks to Battsengel for all his contributions! If you’re reading this and also want to join our friendly community, and help to make LibreOffice even better, we’ve made a page just for you. There are lots of ways to get involved – we look forward to meeting you!
