Ever tried or heard of the Budgie Desktop? It's a modern and feature rich Linux desktop environment from the Solus Linux team and they need a little help.
I'm quite a big fan of Budgie despite not using it directly myself, as their focus on keeping it clean really shows. That along with the slick sidebar to show off various applets like a calendar and media controls looks really good when you start using it. Developer Joshua Strobl who is the Experience Lead of the Solus project has issued a "Call To Action" as they're looking to get translations done for Budgie.
If you've wanted to dip your toes into helping a FOSS project, this could be a good starting point. Not everything is hacking away at code or doing graphics, there's tons of other areas to contribute like documentation and in this case translating your native language.
The release of Budgie 10.5.2 is "around the corner" and they're looking to get help with these languages:
- Belarusian (for Belarusian (latin))
- Chinese (Hong Kong) and Chinese (Traditional): Same team as Chinese (Traditional)
- Norwegian (Nyorsk): Same team as Norwegian (Bokmål)
- Spanish (Argentina), Spanish (Chile), Spanish (Mexico): Same team as Spanish and Spanish (American)
If you think you might be able to spend some time doing translations, you can head over to this linked forum topic to find out how you can get involved.
