My Notes from OSDEVCON2008

OSDEVCON2008

I and several guys from our G11n team had a chance to visit OpenSolaris Developer Conference (OSDEVCON2008). This was the 2nd year of the conference and it was held from Jun 25 - Jun 27 in Prague. The first day (Wed) was focused on Tutorials, Thu and Fri on Presentations. Video and slides will be available at program page of OSDEVCON. The G11n Prague team introduced a presentation about 'Translation of OpenSolaris' - new pilot project focusing on end-to-end process about translation of SW messages and documentation in one place.

Community Translation Interface Pilot Unleashed

Sun's EMEA Globalization Centre unleashed an experimental project aiming to provide the OpenSolaris community with an ultimate translation solution. The Community Translation Interface (CTI) is a simple web application with a translation editor connected to the internal globalization management system powered by Idiom WorldServer.

Petr Tomášek, Róbert Malovec and Aleš Černošek presented the proposed translation model on Friday, June 27, 2008 in Prague's Hotel Masarykova kolej, which hosted the OpenSolaris Developer Conference 2008 (OSDevCon). The presentation slides are now available at the OSDevCon website and a video recording of all presentations will be available soon, according to the conference facilitators.

Even though the CTI web is already available on-line, it is still under construction and not considered stable. The presenters also demonstrated an immediate translation of a command-line application, which was then integrated into OpenSolaris via the IPS package manager. Such a successful proof of concept raised many questions regarding the future of CTI, its availability and acceptance by the community.

Bookmark this page (or the news feed) and stay tuned for more news related to the translation of OpenSolaris.
