Status.Net is a company that provides a product. An open source product that you can implement and, it is a product that you can get support for. It has on its identi.ca a translators group for people who are involved in its localisation.
When you implement a solution like status.net, there are all kinds of extensions to the base functionality you like to have. Like the core product, you may require localisation for the whole package. We at translatewiki.net are really happy that we are now able to support the StatusNet extensions as well.
In order to support the extensions, improved functionality for the Translate software had to be developed. As this functionality improves our support for gettext, it improves translatewiki's support not only for StatusNet.
It is great to see how the support we get from StatusNet helps us support all Free and Open Source software.
