Gnome announces 3.6.2 Release!

This post was made with an older stylesheet

The second update to GNOME 3.6 series is now available. As usual it
provides bug fixes, translations updates and small improvements, in
order to make our stable release even more stable and useful. It may
sound boring but there are interesting changes in there, and valuable
documentation and translation updates. Our thanks to all community
members and to everybody who contributed to this release.

Gnome Translations

If you are using Gnome in your language and you discovered some incorrect translations ..and you have some spare time,  you can help Gnome. Making translations in Gnome is ridiculous easy and it won’t steal much from your time.

As en example I get a part of Gnome Shell Spanish translation. All translations strings are under PO folders in each module.

#. Translators: Filter to display all applications
#: ../js/ui/appDisplay.js:252
msgid "All"
msgstr "Todas"

#: ../js/ui/appDisplay.js:310

#: ../js/ui/appDisplay.js:370
msgid "SETTINGS"

#: ../js/ui/appDisplay.js:675
msgid "New Window"
msgstr "Ventana nueva"

#: ../js/ui/appDisplay.js:678 ../js/ui/dash.js:290
msgid "Remove from Favorites"
msgstr "Quitar de los favoritos"

#: ../js/ui/appDisplay.js:679
msgid "Add to Favorites"
msgstr "Añadir a los favoritos"

#: ../js/ui/appFavorites.js:87
#, c-format
msgid "%s has been added to your favorites."
msgstr "Se ha añadido %s a sus favoritos."

#: ../js/ui/appFavorites.js:118
#, c-format
msgid "%s has been removed from your favorites."
msgstr "Se ha quitado %s de sus favoritos."

So all you need to do is to change <msgstr> or  if is missing you have to add it. You will find more information how to involve with Gnome Translations Teams here:

  We can't watch comments unless G+ provides an API or if you send a notification, e.g +World Of Gnome
