Please help out with translating

We need you to help us translate the english text to your native language.

Don't worry - it is easier that you think.

Instructions are in the file TRANSLATE_README. Post a link to the file as a new issue, or if you are feeling generous - fork and push a pull-request. Thanks!

If they look scary - just email me (foss dot freedom at gmail dot com) and I'll send you the file that needs to be translated - it is less than 20 text strings so it should only take a few minutes.

When emailing - tell me your locale & language. You can find these by typing:

echo $LANG
echo $LANGUAGE
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
