Migration of Jambo OpenOffice 1.1.3 to 2.0

Migration of Jambo OpenOffice 1.1.3 to 2.0

OO 2.0 pre-release logo

I have migrated the GSI/SDF file of Jambo OpenOffice 1.1.3 to the last release of OO 2.0 (m118). A document describing the process is available here.

In order to migrate the localization of 1.1.3 to 2.0, a Swahili compendium of PO messages has been created. The compendium contains 13237 translated messages and 806 fuzzy translations. Using gettext tools as msginit and msgmerge the compendium was merged with OpenOffice.org 2.0 PO templates.

A graphic result of the migration is available here. 68% of the GUI has been automatically translated from Jambo OOo 1.1.3 to 2.0. Help files remain mostly unstranslated (8% translated). All the files are available for download here
