Hello gurus,

I'm an experienced software developer but completely new to the world of Ubuntu development.

I'd like to create a new language derivative of the OS.

How and where should I get started?
What kind of tools do I need?

Any comments or suggestion will be greatly appreciated.

Translating Ubuntu into another language takes place at: https://translations.launchpad.net/ubuntu Have a look there to see if people aren't already working on the language that you wish to translate Ubuntu into.
