Thank you Samuel and Walter for share,

I don't understand all the technicalities yet. I try to follow and learn  :D

I agree with Chris Leonard, we should *prioritize facilitation of the
localization and internationalization (translations) process and tools*.

There are few workflows that involve so much *international collective
exchange* and efforts and this is therefore a cultural treasure and a vital
component of our relationships in the Sugar Labs Community.

In Perú for example, we support the official translation manual to native
languages of Sugar published in a collaborative relationship with the
community and the Deployment Administrators.


We'll continue to do our best effort to it updated if there are
modifications to the upstream process.

Tons of good energy for the team!
