Davide, I'm also interested in an italian translation, but more important would be to solve the bug that avoid the typing ot the @ character in firefox with the ita keyb.

Sory for getting late into the discussion. I'm interested in a less problematic thing: being able to type in my own (slovene) language, which means some special caracters. I tried ptbr.dsl, but I don't seem to be able to make it work. when I download it, it does nothing, it doesn't change the keyboard and it doesn't add the special characters (which I'm mainly interested in). I know I'm missing something, but I really don't know what.

Hi Nino,
this is what I did to make my German keyboard work:
1. in /opt/ :
Code Sample
loadkeys de-latin1-nodeadkeys

2. in /home/dsl/.xinitrc :
Code Sample
# AltGr keyboard mapping for Firefox and others
xmodmap -e "remove mod4 = Mode_switch"
xmodmap -e "add mod5 = Mode_switch"

You have to make sure these files are restored each time you boot, either by listing them in .filetool.lst or by using persistent /home and /opt dirs on a harddisk.
Instead of 1. you can also click the DSLpanel > button keyboard and search for the slovene keyboard.
Some applications, however, refuse to display special characters (e.g. Beaver) although they are there! that's why I use the Nedit.uci extension.

Hope this helps, Jo

Hi all, I'm available for the translation in Italian too.... Davide, why we do not start to translate the menu, not for the application? Somebody can help in giving us some guideline to translate? I'm a windows user, so sorry, I do not know where to start from.. sich...

I seriously want to do the Swedish translation... I painfully miss the internationality on DSL (though I understand the reasons for it to be an English-only distro). DSL would by far be the best distro if international. Any chance for doing the Swedish translation?? Is there a template (I cannot find the much-mentioned Brazilian file pbtr.dsl anywhere) for easifying the work?
