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. I started contributing at 2006, started using it in 2008. 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.
I have 675 forum messages in the Israeli forums, some regarding translation while others technical support in various fields.
Now working as
Leader of Ubuntu Hebrew Translators team
Ubuntu Israel LoCo team member

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