Mozilla Firefox Tamil Release Event – Today

Hello,

Free Software Foundation Tamil Nadu
(FSFTN) is happy to invite you to the
release celebration event of the Tamil Mozilla Firefox 20. The event, being
conducted in association with the Mozilla Foundation, is an acknowledgement

of the relentless efforts of the enthusiastic team of translators who have
made this possible.

The effort, which took over a year, has meant that Tamil browser has the
maximum extent of translation for any Indian language – 97%.

The event is also meant to raise awareness of the need for further
translation and localisation projects. It will also serve as a gathering
point for those interested in expanding the reach of the Tamil language in

the online space and those passionate about localisation.

The guests at the event will be

  • Prof. Ila. Sundaram, SRM University
  • Prof. Subbaiya Arunachalam, Fellow, CIS India
  • S. Ramakrishnan, Writer

I request you to attend the event as well as spread the news to all those
interested and join us in the building of a strong localisation community
for the language.

The event will be held at

Smt. Sivagami Petachi Auditorium
179, Luz Church Road, Mylapore, Chennai
