GNOME i18n survey

Hi happy GNOME language coordinator!

The GNOME i18n team (which you are part of) wants to know better each
other [1], that way we can improve the overall experience of translating

It has been decided to run a small survey[2] which is attached on this

We would appreciate to send it back to gforcada gnome org within two
weeks (just before the GNOME 2.32 string freeze scheduled for August

Don't hesitate to contact me or the GNOME i18n mailinglist [3] with any
question you come up while filling the survey and also to give feedback
on the survey itself.

Happy translating,


gil forcada
