Today I would like to announce my candidacy as I18n PTL in Queens cycle.
I've been in the OpenStack Community since 2015, active as a translator
German team. I participated in my first OpenStack Summit in Tokyo and
I18n team for the first time at the Design Summit. It was an exciting
meet people from all over the world working on the same thing.
It is not just translations, but working with different cultures, views
time zones. These are the magical dimensions and challenges.
After Tokyo we had virtual midcycle sprint to develop the translation
site, one of the tools to help translators in their work.
I met more people during Barcelona Summit and sank deeper and deeper
work of OpenStack and I18n. In Boston we had our own session to show the
the I18n team. We prepared a workshop also which was not so successful,
preparation was great and we can repeat it at any time.
At this point I would like to thank Ianychoi for his excellent work in
as PTL. He is tireless, full of energy, and brought I18n far forward. He
me in the last weeks a kind of mentor to learn all the things related to
and PTL. Nevertheless, I still need support from the entire team to
successfully manage this task.
What goals have I set for myself for Queens:
1. Completion of the translation check site. I have been involved in
project since 2015 and now it has to be finished :-)
2. Automate all the things. We have some manual work in I18n and our
are to automate to make the work easier.
3. Aquire more people to the team. We have great teams that do a lot.
also get more work through translate new OpenStack projects or the User
I hope I have given a good overview. Contact me directly if you have any
questions or requests. On good cooperation in a new cycle of OpenStack!
