Sorry for my late reply.
I am copying with openstack-i18n at lists.openstack.org to keep track of
(Note: I always try to read all of my e-mails but since I receive too
much e-mails in my account these days,
I usually check http://lists.openstack.org/pipermail/openstack-i18n/ for
faster responses from openstack-i18n at lists.openstack.org.)

Personally, I have been to Romania about 10 years ago shortly (about
less than 4 weeks in Bucharest),
but I do not have enough knowledge to judge between ro vs. ro-RO.
Now I want to follow your decision: "ro". Thanks.

That's fine. At least, I am not a full-time translator for OpenStack :)

Would you read first http://docs.openstack.org/developer/i18n/ ?
Then please let me know which points you would like to know or ask.
I will follow Romanian language support in Zanata after I18n IRC meeting
on this Thursday 13:00 UTC
( http://eavesdrop.openstack.org/#I18N_Team_Meeting ).
If you attend to this meeting, I think it will be very nice to talk each
With many thanks,
