I want to contribute to the fabulous Ubuntu world, but am a novice in technology and programming.

But on the contrary, I am quite strong within my language Norwegian (bokmaal). (Norway is bilingual).

And I have seen that VLC player is translated into Norwegian (nynorsk) only, leaving the bokmaal language unavailable for this app.

Who can I talk to to translate VLC player to lang=nb? I would love to do this job.

From man vlc I have found this documentation link (at the end of the man page). There I've looked for "Contribute" and finally landed on the translation page. It refers to a howto which should be followed to translate into a new language.

However, it seems to me that there is already a maintainer for "Norwegian Bokmål". You might want to contact him first.

Updated VLC and found it now is a mix of both our languages.. So I guess it is already a work in progress. That's good and I'll see whereelse I can contribute. – Kjell Jul 4 '13 at 7:50
