Kilinux Glossary


The Kilinux team is about to release its En-SW Extended Glossary within few days, which contains more than 1500 terms translated to Kiswahili language. The release of the glossary was delayed because some terms were too difficult to translate and the team worked hard to come up with appropriate terms for Kiswahili users.
