Ubuntu Netbook Remix in Catalan

I wanted to let you know of a project which probably won’t be new to the most of you.

Ubuntu Netbook Remix (in short, UNR) is a sleek, easy to use and yet powerful version of Ubuntu aimed at netbook devices and… well of course, human beings.

What you might not have known is that as with Ubuntu, you can translate and use UNR in your very own language. The UNR project has already been translated to some 36 languages, but there are still some in need of love.

So, if you are a speaker of Belarusian, Bengali, Bosnian, Bulgarian, Dhivehi, Estonian, Filipino, Hindi, Irish, Lithuanian, Nepali, Serbian, Vietnamese, Welsh, Xhosa, Zulu or any of these other languages without a translation already, here’s what you can do to make UNR speak your tongue:

And who knows, maybe when you’ve finished you might feel like translating some more of these other awesome projects!

    What languages do pre-built downloadable/installable images of UNR come with at this point in time?

      Hi Jef,

      Sorry for the delay in replying. In the UNR Jaunty image, the UNR applications include translations for 30 languages:

      ar, ca, cs, da, de, el, en_GB, es, eu, fi, fr, gl, he, hu, it, ja, ko, nb, nl, pl, pt_BR, pt, ro, ru, sk, sl, sv, tr, zh_CN, zh_TW

      The translations of the rest of the applications are covered by language packs, in the same way as in the Ubuntu LiveCD. The number of language packs included by default varies between each release, as we are always trying to fit in as many language packs as possible. The language packs included by default in the UNR Jaunty image are:

      de, en, es, fr, pt

      I hope this answers your question.
