4.5. International language support

This section includes information on language support under Fedora.

4.5.1. Language coverage

Fedora features a variety of software that is translated in many languages. For a list of languages refer to the translation statistics for the Anaconda module, which is one of the core software applications in Fedora.
4.5.1.1. Language support installation
To install langpacks and additional language support from the Languages group, run this command:
	su -c 'yum groupinstall <language>-support'

In the command above, <language> is the actual language name, such as assamese, bengali, chinese, and so on.
SCIM users upgrading from earlier releases of Fedora are strongly urged to install scim-bridge-gtk, which works well with third-party C++ applications linked against older versions of libstdc++.
4.5.1.2. Transifex
Transifex is Fedora's online tool to facilitate contributing translations to projects hosted on remote and disparate version control systems. Many of the core packages use Transifex to receive translations from numerous contributors.
Through a combination of new web tools (http://translate.fedoraproject.org), community growth, and better processes, translators can contribute directly to any upstream project through one translator-oriented web interface. Developers of projects with no existing translation community can easily reach out to Fedora's established community for translations. In turn, translators can reach out to numerous projects related to Fedora to easily contribute translations.
