Dear VLC Team,

Hope you are all well,

I'm writing to bring to your attention the efforts of the Luganda team that has been carrying out Luganda translations of VLC as part of the localise software subprojects of the African Localisation Network. 

The translations are currently hosted at: http://pootle.locamotion.org/lg/mini_vlc

The principle aim of writing is to express the need for a localized build for the language initially for testing and also to later have the language incorporated as one of the official release languages.

As part of our efforts, we have been able to have Luganda as one of the new official builds of Mozilla Firefox. We have also localized other applications such as Tuxpaint, Abiword, Pootle and Virtaal among others. Our goal and that of the network is to eliminate the last inch limitation imposed on technology by language through creation of an equal and rewarding local experience.

I look forward to hear from you soon.

warmest  regards,
San Emmanuel James,

"HAB 3:17 - 19 though the fig tree shant blossom,  neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail, and the  fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there  shall be no herd in the stalls: Yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy  in the God of my salvation. The LORD God is my strength, and he will  make my feet like hinds' feet, and he will make me to walk upon mine high  places."
