Computing in isiXhosa

Author: JT Smith

From the Daily Mail & Guardian: "Using a computer is daunting enough for beginners, especially if you are forced to do it in a language that is not your own. But in September South African firm Translate.org.za released the entire computing experience in Xhosa, covering the full desktop, Web browser, word processor, spreadsheet and e-mail application.

The programmes have been translated to run on Linux, the open source software that is rapidly gaining inroads in the computing world."
