Hello translators,

I have three so delightful news to share with all translators regarding 
Boston Summit & Forum.

First, I would like to happily announce that there will be two 
presentations with I18n & translation during Boston Summit!

[Title: I18n-101: Introduction to translation and contributing qualified 
translation with useful tips]
- Presenters: Zheng Xi Zhou (@zzxwill), Alex Eng (@aeng), Ian Y. Choi 
- Date & Time: Wednesday, May 10, 1:50pm-3:20pm
- Track: Hands-on Workshops
- More details: [1]

[Title: Participating in translation makes you an internationalized 
OpenStacker & developer]
- Presenters: Zheng Xi Zhou (@zzxwill), Jean-François Taltavull 
(@jftalta), Frank Kloeker (@eumel8)
- Date & Time: Thursday, May 11, 1:30pm-2:10pm
- Track: How to Contribute
- More details: [2]

@zzxwill (Chinese language team coordinator) suggested & actively 
submitted those two presentations and they have been finally accepted as 
two main presentations.
Thanks a lot!

Note that I have been notified that [3] was not accepted but approved as 
an Alternate Session for potential inclusion.
If I receive a positive news on [3], then I will take appropriate 
actions to make the possible panel discussion successfully land on 
Boston Summit
(e.g., more discussion with speakers, well-preparing panel questions, ...).

Second, That's not all why it would be so nice and attractive for 
translators to come to Boston Summit. Forum is also important for I18n!

There will be more Forum discussion(s) with I18n people - but not 
limited to I18n: Zanata dev. team, Infra people, developers and operators.
I have created an Etherpad [4] to discuss ideas for nice topics during 
Boston Forum and included the Etherpad on [5].
We have sufficient time to well organize, prepare, and make successful 
Forum discussion(s) [6].

Please feel free to share your idea on [4] for fruitful discussions with 
I18n & translation.

Third, recently, I have also heard that all ATCs received 300$ discount 
codes a few days ago.
If you have translated >= 300 words from August 2016 to January 2017 but 
have not received such discount codes,
please check your e-mail inbox with spam folder and if there is no such 
e-mail for discount codes, then please tell me.
For such cases, I will take care of it by checking the exact statistics 
[7, 8] and asking to Foundation if needed.

I hope that many translators will come to Boston, see the presentation 
sessions, and also discuss I18n & translation feedback + issues for Forum.
Let's do brainstorming for Boston Summit & Forum for better I18n & 
translation world in OpenStack!

With many thanks,
