If you speak other language than English as primary language, you must see the big difference in quantity and sometimes quality of the resources and documentation!, this is a big problem that not everyone sees, for a simple reason: the once who make resources and documentation speak English so for them is not a problem. I understand that having English as “lingua franca” is good because if everyone speaks in a different language this turns into an international mess!, but not everyone speaks English and google translator is not a solution.
(Off topic) If you don’t believe me try this:
1 Find a person who speaks, English and other Language
2 Go to google translate
3 You put something in english and then translate it in the other person’s language
4 Translate the conversation both ways… you into the other language and the other person into English
5 after some sentences you will laugh a lot with the nonsense 🙂
Google Translator is a great app but is not a a solution for translation.
So, to solving this problem the Spanish speaking Community : is doing parallel events on Open Week doing Open Week_ES, and on Ubuntu Users Days with Día del Usuario Ubuntu. Lately the Ubuntu-es-locos is been quite active and having meeting to improve the help and collaboration between LoCos who speak Spanish.
Also the newly created Classroom_ES is gonna take charge of OpenWeek, Ubuntu UserDays and Developer Week, providing a Spanish Parallel event to the official English one.
Many people who don’t speak English could be very helpful for the Ubuntu Community! so we have to provide them a way to join us! this community is one of the reasons I use Ubuntu instead of other Distro, but it could be inproved!
If you read this and you can start something like this in other language do it please! and if you have other ideas to improve this share them!
