Localization of Mozilla Firefox 3.0.1


The Kilinux team is in the process of localizing Mozilla Firefox 3.0.1. In the localization process, the team looks at two alternatives. Firstly, migration of the older version of Kiswahili Mozilla Firefox (Jambo Mozilla Firefox 1.0.3) to a new version (3.0.1) and Secondly, localizing Mozilla Firefox 3.0.1 from scratch. The team looks at the easiest alternative.

New Kiswahili Spell Checker


The Kilinux Team is about to finish the development of a new Kiswahili spell checker that will replace the existing one used in Jambo OpenOffice.org 1.0.3. The spell checker was developed using MySpell spell checking tool. The team is finalizing the collection and verification of valid kiswahili stems to be used in the Kiswahili wordlist together with the creation of Kiswahili morphological rules that will be used to create more Kiswahili prefixes/suffixes for the affix file.
