Aftermath

GNOME Session Attendees at AB17

More than 25 people attended our sessions.

In the first session, Muhammet Kara gave a detailed technical/general presentation about the localization process; and Gökhan Gurbetoğlu gave information about localization teams in Turkey, and some of the well-known localization tools.

In the second session, Muhammet Kara introduced the attendees to the GNOME project, and the GNOME Turkish Translation Team; and walked them through our translation process by using Damned-Lies and GTranslator. Gökhan Gurbetoğlu assisted the attendees, who were having technical issues.

We were pleased by the attention of the attendees. They were from different universities in different cities, and several of them were enthusiastic about spreading the word in their own universities.
