English: About Trasno Project and Galician
The “Proxecto Trasno” is a meeting point for galician language free software translators.
This volunteer driven project it’s meant to provide either tools for communicating, discussing and deciding over translator’s shared problems and a place for localisation aid tools to be set for anyone to enjoy.
The final goal is to provide full free software localised systems in galician language with the best quality possible.
The project is currently sponsored by a homonym foundation created, formed and driven by members of the project.
The foundation is a non profit organisation intended to provide legal support for the project and maintain the project infrastructure.
The project started back in the 1999 and it has been uninterruptedly active all this time.
The foundation was created in 2009.
Galician, galego, is a latin language spoken in Galicia, an autonomous community in northwest Spain and very closely related to Portuguese. It’s spoken by 2,5 to 3 million of speakers.
It’s the official language of Galicia, along with Castilian or Spanish.
