Short Intro to klnX


Welcome to the Kilinux (klnX) website!
klnX is an Open Swahili Localization Project started by Department of Computer Science (DoCS) in collaboration with staff from Institute of Kiswahili Research (IKR) and College of Engeneering and Technology (COET)
The project has gathered a multidisciplinary team composed by members of the Department of Computer Science and the Institute of Swahili Research.
