Unfortunately all communication in Ubuntu development is in English. The good thing is that with a little knowledge of the language and a few helpful friends in your LoCo you should usually get around very quickly.

To make it easier for new developers who feel their English is not good enough yet to participate, we will have LoCo members in a variety of channels who can translate your questions for you and pass them on to the hosts of the session. Just make sure you join the channel below and watch out for the people listed behind the channel name. They'll help you with your question.
