Contacting the Ubuntu Translations community
Here are the ways in which you can reach the global Ubuntu Translations community. Our preferred way of contact is the Ubuntu Translators mailing list, but there are many other ways to get in touch with us or to follow what's happening in the translations world.
The mailing list is the place where all discussion and announcements should take place. You can read the online archive of the list, or you can subscribe to the list and get involved in the development of Ubuntu localization or internationalization.
Ubuntu Translations Coordination
We try to provide a transparent coordination process. As such, for discussions of any problem you encounter with translations, we encourage you to use the Ubuntu translators mailing list.
However, for special problems you can also contact the Ubuntu Translations Coordinators (please use this method if contacting us through the mailing list failed or if you feel it is not appropriate). As an example, you can contact the Ubuntu Translations Coordinators team for questions such as:
- Problems in importing Ubuntu translations in the Launchpad imports queue
- Requesting the addition of a new language to Ubuntu
- Involved technical questions on internationalization
For real-time interaction feel free to ask in the official channel.

Ubuntu Translations Teams
In Ubuntu we have one Ubuntu localization team appointed to each language. To contact the team appointed to your language please see the teams list.
