Work restarted

After few discussions and research, I found a hole in that area - i18n. Present days developers release a tons of extensions and applications without any kind of language support, specially paid applications, such as IPBoard and vBulletin, they REJECT to provide support in language different then English. It's they're loose. It's full with over 20 open-source free alternatives for forum boards.

But in the case with Joomla! and paid extensions, sometimes there is no alternatives (non-paid, free extensions) and people decide to pay small or not so small amount of EURO to have the selected application. What's the surprise, once you get it, you find that the application is translated in over 50 languages by Google Translator or even is not translated.... read more

Difference between SF.NET & commercial sites

Attention all SourceForge.NET users and mostly this under 18 years. SourceForge.NET is not a gamming site like, the ppl here are not crazy, they work hard to create their projects (most of them are very useful for you, like Gaim, Gimp, FileZilla, SIM). Ppl here, spend all free time to maintain and improve their projects. No one of them work here for money, the work on the projects is for FUN, GLORY, FAME but no for money - if one project for example mine one:GTLT - needs translators, this means - if u have free time, and u want to make it, than you're welcome. But some ppl (no user names) ask me what sallary will recieve for the work - simply answer - NO MONEY. The real one way to get money for your work is thru SourceForge.NET Donation system, or simply if your country is supported by PayPal.COM u can a wait some donations.... read more

Name changes (sorry for the troubles)

We are not part of GNU and for this we cant use this prefix in our team name, GNU Translation and Localisation Team from this date, becomes Global Translation and Localisation Team.

We will continue support GNU and FSF, this is our primary objective, but we cant stand behind something that was not permited.

Most of the programs the we maintain are not licensed with GNU GPL, or LGPL licenses, but are still Open Source. I hope that the new name will not disturb you, GTLT is GTLT again, but not GNU.
