Professional #localisation at #translatewiki.net
Mifos is going to be implemented in Andhra Pradesh. The easiest and most obvious usability improvement is localisation and as you can see from the graphic for Telugu localisations, a lot of work was done in an extremely short period of time by Avshyd.
When so much work is done, it is always of interest to how this was done.Was it a one-man show or were multiple people involved. Was there any quality control and finally what do the users think. As Mifos is implemented in Telugu, there will be people working with the software and they can complain when the localisation needs improvement.
At translatewiki.net we are happy when our localisations are used. We are happy when people come to us and do the work for their own reasons. In the case of Mifos, it will mean that many more people will have access to credit, microcredit at that but it is a huge step up.
