Help translate OpenFoodFacts, the wikipedia of food.


Hi all,
I'm not wearing my usual Ubuntu Translators hat, but rather my
OpenFoodFacts hat.
OpenFoodFacts is a mobile crowdsourcing projet aiming to create a free (as
in beer ^^) global database of food (and beer ^^) products, with
ingredients, additives and nutrition info.
You can have a look at www.openfoodfacts.org

We currently manage translations on a wiki (
http://en.wiki.openfoodfacts.org/Translations) for the website, food
I'm currently trying to standardize the translation process for the
project, and we have a first simple translation up on Launchpad for the
Android app.


I'd be grateful if you could help us translate the app in as many languages
as possible.
We're also looking for both technical and non-technical contributors, in as
many countries as possible. It goes from translating the taxonomies on the
wiki, to contributing local food products using your mobile phone, to
helping us with development.
