Rafaella Calls for Translation

A couple of days ago I got an email from Rafaella Braconi of the localization team for OpenOffice.org, she recently announced on the Localization team the schedule for the OpenOffice.org 2.3 release and the localization time frame for the language release.The translation seemed to be done but we will need to go through all the 17,000 words  through a month period. The revision should be done by July 26th. The translation most be reviewed by a team formed by the community. After a couple of emails that I sent asking for support a good crowd gather and offer their services. This is awesome by the way. The community once again step up and a team of 15 and counting will be joining this efforts.We think that we will get those 17,000 words reviewed in totality by the beginning of July but we will still need to get organized. I am waiting for the language lead to getdone with her vacations and come and join us and get the development organized and help me split the work.As far as I know there is no reason to panic, we do have time and we will have enough time to get everything setup. So fast your seat belts because OpenOffice.org 2.3 promise to have a top notch localization for Spanish.
