Translators, start your engines!

Again some good news for Xubuntu: the Ubiquity installation slideshow for Xubuntu is now ready and merged into the main branch. You can start translating now!

The design is an improved version of the old slideshow; the slideshow window is now actually a bit bigger, and we added the arrows to move around to make the slideshow smoother. Works really well. Instant win! Also, the texts have been completely rewritten. There were a few keywords we didn’t let off our heads when we rethought the slides and the content: fun, short, necessary. The final version became to be after hard work, many days and a few really long nights. I couldn’t have done it without Simon, who in addition to everything else provided us the fabulous screenshots from his Natty installation.

Love it? Hate it?

    A link to where translations can be done would have been helpful :)

    Here it is:

    Hey David!

    Thanks for the message and the link. I’m afraid that the POT file doesn’t seem to be updated yet though. I’ll have a look at it.
