I would like to know if it is currently or will be possible to translate the Ubuntu One web UI, because I know people, and I'm sure there are lot of them, who don't understand any English words, and so don't use it. I really that think it is very important to make it translatable, to have it used by the most people possible.
At the moment, you can't translate the web ui. There's 2 reasons for this:
- There's a lot of actual technical work that needs to be done, and it hasn't been a priority so far
- Since we sell plans, the translations are a sensitive issue since it can lead to fraud. We would need some oversight over the translations, and we don't have the resources to do this for many languages
I do understand, though, the importance of internationalisation, and it comes up frequently in our discussions so I'm sure we'll eventually manage to carve out the time and budget to kick it off.
