This forum is now closed. Unfortunately it has been the regular target of spam.

Swahili Advanced Computer Applications (SACA) was set up in 2006 with the idea that certain efforts to support Kiswahili in human language technologies, and to localize specialized software, merited a dedicated discussion space (see /m1 ). That is certainly still true, but this particular format may not be ideal for it.

While this forum must regretfully be closed, the broader efforts it was a part of to advance the use of African languages in information and communication technologies are ongoing. For more information, please consult among others:
* African Network for Localisation (ANLoc) http://africanlocalisation.net/
* African Language Technology (AfLaT) http://aflat.org/

Hi Muhsin, Unfortunately Jambo Open Office (1.1.3) seems stuck. Any effort to do an upgrade would be super. See this page for info on other Swahili software localization: http://www.panafril10n.org/wikidoc/pmwiki....frLoc/Swahili#toc13 . It may need updating - these things need constant attention.

The PanAfrican Localisation project (2005-08) has been gathering information on localization in African languages at the above site. A new PanAfrican Localisation Network project (2008-11) will facilitate more specific FOSS work and support in African languages.

There is always need for more Please join this list which includes a wide range of people involved in localization: http://lists.panafril10n.org/mailman/listinfo/pal-en (the PanAfriL10n list in English working language).
