I am mailing to let you know that we are planning to begin some
work in Weblate on the SLE 15 project. We hope to begin this work
later this week. Our hope is to work on any strings that have
strings that have no translations, strings that have failing checks
etc. We'll pause next week and take stock of our progress.
As this will be the first project where contracted translators will
work in parallel with the community we want to make sure there are open
channels of communication between all and that we build a good working
relationship as we go through the project.
As usual any questions can be mailed to this mailing list and it
will be monitored by our team. You can also contact me directly for any
issues and I will do my best to answer.

I'm confused, sorry. I have received hundreds of Weblate
notifications about
changes in YaST and Zypper. But these projects have been kept on
100% for long time, see
are mainly desktop-file-translations and packages-i18n. Within YaST,
timezone_db contains plenty of controls (mainly names of localities).
projects really needing care have not been touched so far. So I don't
really know what's going on right now... I hoped in more coordination or
that contracted translators will finish missing gaps...?

Vojtech, this was announced in advance multiple times. Just search for
the SLE robot emails.

The only matching mail for "SLE robot emails" is the original Padraig's one
during past year. :-)

There are many suggestions presently on yast which provide translations
comming from SLE, they need to be reviewed and better translation is to
be picked (in most cases I did this morning tho I had to discard the
SLE translation).

Yes, OK, if on the end there are no proposals and no fuzzy strings, it will be
good. Progress. Despite fact there are projects not in so good state. I'm not
complaining. I just did expect something slightly different...

If you don't wanna just receive emails you can of course do the same
reviews, there is cca 1500 strings to review in czech language.

I know how to turn it off. :-)

For what is interest of SUSE we will for sure use contractors to
translate specific apps or do reviews like this, rather than
translating milion strings from desktop files...

Partially probably language specific question, but (in the past?), contracted
translators commonly used terms, which are weird for rest of most of the Czech
Linux world. I mean, their translations were inconsistent with another Linux
distributions, thus giving bit a strange feeling.
I understand the point, although desktop files also do contain plenty of
string useful for SLE, I think... Or no...?


Thank You,

Vojtěch Zeisek
