Discussion Board Tool Released!

Today, we release KiPot 1.0, an open source (GNU) discussion tool developed by Louise to support the localization of OpenOffice by our Open Swahili Localization team. After finishing the first Swahili IT Glossary of aprox. 700 terms we very quickly understood two things: the first was that the glossary needs to be extended constantly and the second was that the extended glossary required a fluent communication between our technical team and the Swahili linguistic experts.

The purpose of KiPot is to facilitate the communication between translators and linguistics in the process of glossary development. Although the tool has been designed to satisfy our special needs, we have put special effort in a clean design that could allow other localization efforts to reuse and extend our code.



DOWNLOAD The full code of the KiPot 1.0 is now available. Happy Kipoting!
