Hola! OpenDS now speaks Catalan

It's a big pleasure to announce that OpenDS now speaks Catalan as well. The Catalan community used the Community Translation Interface to deliver the first round of translations that should cover the most visible messages in the command line. Grab the latest daily build and try it out!

OpenDS in Polish

OpenDS now speaks Polish! Although not completely, but a big part of strings one encounters when doing the regular tasks is translated, thanks to two members of the Polish OpenDS community - Bartłomiej and Marek.[Read More]

i18n collation in OpenDS 2.0

Sorry for microblogging, I just have to point at Ludo's new entry concerning i18n collation matching rules (making sure a search for "Helene" will find "Hélène") in the just released OpenDS 2.0, since it's something very related to us.

OpenDS 2.0

OpenDS 2.0 is here! The second version of the opensource directory server OpenDS and his brother with paid support Sun OpenDS Standard Edition brings new GUI, separation of user and administration operations, and many new features and performance improvements. From the l10n point of view the most important is the support for RFC 4518 (i18n string matching). The amount of english strings was huge and OpenDS 2.0 is translated into german, french, spanish, japanese and simplified chinese; plus we still keep the partial korean and traditional chinese translations from the previous version. It's important to note that some of the translation was contributed by members of the community through CTI. The Help and error messages are left in english, but if we see an interest there, it may change in the next version.

Easier translation of OpenDS

As of now, OpenDS messages contain about 160,000 english words. That is a huge number and definitely a barrier for potential translators. At the same time most of the messages can be seen on rare occasions only, so why not give it a try and reduce the scope?[Read More]

OpenDS 2.0 ready for community translations

Yesterday Ludo announced that the OpenDS community can now use a more user friendly way of contributing translations - the CTI (CTI how to for OpenDS). This is becoming more important now, since only japanese will be officially supported in OpenDS 2.0. Based on the access data we originally decided to start with the french and japanese community, but as a very pleasant surprise users signed up for translating into spanish, german and polish too! Other languages can be added upon request.
