Indonesian LibreOffice community: Online translation marathon

Communities around the world help to translate and localise LibreOffice in over 100 languages. We really appreciate their efforts! Even when they can’t meet in person, they hold online events to make progress, as Ahmad Haris reports:

March 28, 2020: The Indonesian LibreOffice community held an online translation marathon, which focused on the user interface. Normally, we have in-person meetings for such translating marathons, but due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, we held it online. We use Jitsi and deploy to our community server. The results were quite positive, since we’re heading towards reaching 100% translation. Only a few strings (21) remain untranslated because we also use the same string in the Indonesian language.

A big thanks to everyone in the Indonesian LibreOffice community who took part! Everyone around the world is welcome to join our translation projects and make LibreOffice accessible for all, regardless of language or location. It’s a great way to use your skills, contribute to a well-known FOSS project, and have fun!
