About Me

I am living in China and I am a complete Linux fan. I love the free software spirit and want to share it with more and more people all over the world. I choose Ubuntu as my desktop OS because it is easy-to-use and I can get involved with its community much easier than others. I live in Israel, I really like open source and I am very interested in linguistics. I do my best to spread Linux using my personal and business connections. My main Operating system is Ubuntu although I contribute to other operating systems.

Summary of contributions to Ubuntu

Ive started translating Ubuntu long before I started using it. Since I was into software translation for many years and I really liked the idea of open source I translated open source software before I was able to use it (I had some applications that needed a proprietary Operating System. After being involved in the translation of Ubuntu for about a year I became the Hebrew translation team leader, few months later I got my permissions to commit translations to GNOME and ever since I do my best to sync translations with upstream or translate upstream only when possible.

Now working as

Currently focus on

  • Setting some standards for open source translation while supporting Hebrew translators.
  • Writing some explanation documents to a project I established called Gezer Project (Hebrew).

Future Plan

  • Promote open source usage at the Israeli education system.
  • Help deal with RTL problems.
  • Reaching more Israeli translators and developers to help develop Ubuntu.
