== Translate ==

We target including some of the translation work in a 0.7 release for November 27th (Thanksgiving release). All text visible to users of !FreedomBox needs to be localized to various

 * Individual applications that !FreedomBox exposes to users such as ownCloud, JWChat etc.

Documents for user interface (Plinth) translation are currently available on [[https://github.com/freedombox/Plinth/tree/master/locale|GitHub]]. If you wish to see !FreedomBox available for one of your languages, please start a discussion on the !FreedomBox discuss [[http://lists.alioth.debian.org/mailman/listinfo/freedombox-discuss|mailing list]].
