Ubuntu Swahili Translators is a group of people around the world who actively participate in translating Ubuntu to Swahili.
The Umoja Project
A group working with the translation of Free Software such as Mozilla Firefox, OpenOffice.Org, Gnome, KDE to Swahili. We work closely with upstream to make our translation available to all users beyond their choice of platform. This will eventually make Ubuntu a better distribution as Ubuntu uses translations from upstream.
See our wiki page for more details.
The current focus of our translation efforts is Ubuntu 7.04 Fiesty Fawn. The goal is to translate 100,000 strings before the end of 2008. Join the effort.
