Dutch Plone translation sprint: the results

Door Roel Bruggink | Op 06-04-2009
Plone is once again 100% Dutch.

Due to Plone 3.3 being in testing fase, the need for an new Dutch translation has risen. We had fallen behind from a perfect 100% translation to a mere 96%. A perfect opportunity to organise a sprint and subject our colleagues to slaverish labour (Har har!). 'Cause we are such greate people to hang with (or because good translations are important), many had shown interest and so we had 13 men eager for beer and Plone around the office; Duco, Kees, Arjen, Wietse and Kim Chee from GW20e, Fred and Maurits from Zest Software, Jarno from Pareto, and last but not least Rob, Maarten, Roel and Laurens from Four Digits.

GW20e arrived Dutch Translation Sprint

Four Digits provided food and drinks, so the fierce men from GW20e arrived first. They had forgotten the road beer and thus -even before unpacking- dived into our fridge to confiscate our last Jever!

Just in time for diner, our last guests Fred and Maurits from Zest arrived. Although they missed the kick-off, they made up a lot by going for Archetypes and more.
