Fedora 25 i18n Test Day tomorrow (2016-09-28)!

Hi folks! It’s Fedora Test Day time once again! Tomorrow, 2016-09-28, will be the Fedora 25 i18n Test Day. i18n is internationalization; i18n and its buddy localization (l10n) (together known as ‘g11n’, for ‘globalization’) cover all the work needed to make Fedora usable in languages other than U.S. English and countries other than the U.S.

i18n specifically covers things like the special ‘input methods’ used to input languages which need something beyond a simple 1:1 key-to-character system, and the fonts and font engine capabilities needed to render non-Latin characters.

The test day page has all the information you need to get testing, and you can enter your results on the result page. Please, if you’re familiar with using anything but U.S. English to work with your computer, come along and help us test! As always, the event will be in #fedora-test-day on Freenode IRC. If you don’t know how to use IRC, you can read these instructions, or just use WebIRC.
