View Full Version : Need translations for a new Open Social Network

August 3rd, 2011, 09:13 AM

My name is Vincent, i live in France. I help to develop Movim, an internationnal social network, it haven't the goal to be a concurrent against Facebook but to purpose a free and decentralized alternative, in respect to Free Software philosophy.

I invite you to discover our project : http://movim.eu/ (it's still in development).


How to contribute ?

We need translators : we wish Movim.eu to be understandable in as many languages as possible, and even in some dialects for each country !

So we think to purpose Movim in your language (or in the dialect of your choice) could permit to enlarge the diffusion of this new Social Network.

Are you motivated ? Good !

If you have the courage to translate everything it would be perfect, but i'll be happy if you try to translate Movim https://translations.launchpad.net/movim/trunk/+pots/i18n/ga/+translate?start=0&batch=10&show=untranslated&field.alternative_language=&field.alternative_language-empty-marker=1&old_show=all

Thanks for your valuable contribution.

Hello all,

Near one year later, i would show you what Movim become : https://movim.forumanalogue.fr/ (https://movim.etenil.net/) (begin by "Create my vCard" after registration/login)
The 0.5 version has been released last week, see that page for more informations http://blog.movim.eu/and-here-is-movim-0-5-snowball/


We still need your help to offer our software in your language, if you want to contribute like me, add some strings in your list: https://translations.launchpad.net/movim/trunk/+pots/i18n/ga/+translate?start=0&batch=10&show=untranslated&field.alternative_language=&field.alternative_language-empty-marker=1&old_show=all

Small contributions are as important as large, we need every possible effort to accomplish the feat to propose a multilingual decentralized social network! It's Open Source and much more!

You could meet our team on this XMPP chan: movim@conference.movim.eu

Please help us =)

Hello! The project is progressing again incredibly!

So much has changed since the last time. This time let me tell you more about what has been achieved.

It's no longer necessary to have an account on a Movim pod: do you have a Jabber address? That's it! Just login on Movim (on http://pod.mov.im for example), and it will load your profile, as do a heavy client as Gajim/Pidgin/Empathy.

Movim is now able to provide a flow of microblogging. By default, messages are for your contacts on the XMPP network. Each message can be promoted public, and then appears in an RSS feed that you can share. These public messages that make up your personal page are visible to all Internet, that's why we simply called it your "blog".

Movim also implements the XMPP groups, a kind of cross between a mailing list and newsgroups: you subscribe to a list to receive and send messages to all users. This is quite interesting.

We really took care to make a Responsive Design theme, Movim now also works very well on small screens.

Some screenshots now:









Movim 0.7 is the first version usable by the general public. The code has been really stabilized, I certify you that you can play with Movim 0.7 daily. Because our project is a free software created by volunteers, we ask your help again to offer our great project in your language!

Please, take 5 minutes to translate some strings on this page, it doesn't matter if you can't end all pending translations, someone could do it in the future: https://translations.launchpad.net/movim/trunk/+pots/i18n/ga/+translate?start=0&batch=10&show=untranslated&field.alternative_language=&field.alternative_language-empty-marker=1&old_show=all
(if some bizare characters are in a string, like "%s" it's normal, let it in your translation, and please take care to follow the exact punctuation!)

Do you want to test Movim? Just login with your XMPP/Jabber account on http://pod.mov.im or create a new one. (this pod is hosted in your country!)

We will also be pleased to read your advise on our mailing-list, see http://wiki.movim.eu/mailing_list

Hi Vincent, The Ubuntu Ireland LoCo is fairly quiet at the moment and there is very little activity in this forum particularly. Can I suggest you post this request to the mailing list (https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-ie). Alternatively you might try to make contact with members of the LoCo on IRC in channel #ubuntu-ie on the freenode network. Our Loco is quite small and we have not had much success recently with Irish translations for the Ubuntu Project. Through these suggested avenues though you may make contact with someone capable and interested or someone who can at least suggest other avenues to find an Irish translator. Best of luck with your project.
