Welcome to the British English Translation Team in Launchpad, central hub and home to those who consistently deliver high quality tweaks and translations into UK English for packages here on Launchpad!

Historically, this team completes the majority of british english translations for packages on launchpad, especially for Ubuntu. Therefore, please contact us if you have any concerns, queries or noticed any glaring bugs to tackle.
If you have a project on launchpad and would like it worked on, or have any specific deadlines, please send a message to either the team itself or to me to forward around.

If your british english is 'top-notch' why not apply today?
You will need to have been a member of Launchpad for long enough to not look suspicious (e.g. not be literally days old and signed up to every team at hand), and have experience in translating en_gb on the site to a consistently informed standard. Unfortunately, spam accounts do exist and they result in more work fishing out problems later on.

It really is a tremendous way to give to the community because we are responsible for what the endusers see when they load their operating system or programs! Even the tiny tweaks like 'Trash' becoming 'Rubbish Bin' and the confusing 'Color' becoming 'Desktop Colour Profiles' started their lives here. Anything to improve the user experience for our language base.

Any problems at all? Feel free to contact me directly, or us as a group at the team's mailing list below!

Now that's all sorted, let's pour ourselves some tea, don our tophats and get those translations finished swiftly and more importantly, accurately ! ;)
