Just a brief status report to remind you guys that the blog and Get Localization itself is really going well and we don’t have plans to go anywhere, except up! We’ve been really busy on improving the site, for example we’ve increased reliability, added some requested format supports like Adobe AIR, Android and basic INI file used in PHP, Windows and others. We have also a demo project that can be used for playing around with the service, see the demo project link at our main page http://www.getlocalization.com.
Regarding reliability, we’ve been doing lots of fixing and polishing so you wouldn’t see any errors when for example importing or exporting your files. We are really happy with the result so you can except Get Localization to get out of the Beta stage hopefully soon.
Nokia World and other events
Get Localization was attending Nokia World and Nokia Developer Summit this year. Nokia released lots of great devices and with Qt the development for mobile devices is easier than ever! We’ve been doing some Qt development here as well and can really agree with the message, it’s easy and really powerful platform. With single source code, you can get your application running on Symbian, MeeGo, Maemo, Windows, Mac OS X and Linux etc. Community is also porting it to Android, iPhone and many others it so it’s truly a cross-platform environment.
Get Localization also fully supports Qt localization format. Just upload the file and use crowdsourcing or professional translators do the translation for you. It can’t be easier!
We will be attending numerous events and conferences this fall. Currently confirmed are:
- PyCon Finland 2010, Turku Finland (http://fi.pycon.org/)
- SEE 2010, Amsterdam, Netherlands (http://www.see2010.org/)
- MeeGo Conference 2010, Dublin Ireland (http://conference2010.meego.com/)
And possibly many others! Let us know if you want to meet (also outside of the list, we are happy to get tips of new conferences). Also if your conference needs a speaker about how localization should be done in year 2010, just let us know!
