Hi every one,

this is Sri Ramadoss and I would like to join hands with you all in translating mailman to Tamil my mother tongue.

We have a set of people who can contribute towards this.

I have little experience in Translating and seek all your guidance.

I know English and Tamil.

How to proceed further.

Please guide me.

Shri Ramadhas M,

Please read our Internationalization (i18n) page in our wiki. [1]

After reading that, and the other information to which it refers (e.g. our i18n HowTo), you're welcome to ask any further questions here.

Enna vishayam !

Welcome to Mailman! :)

Stepwise instructions - to view Unicode Tamil text

1. You need to have Unicode Tamil fonts installed on your computer and the Operating System capable of rendering Tamil Scripts. Windows XP comes with a Unicode Tamil Font (Latha) and you need not download/install a unicode font.
2. In the Control Panel, in Regional/Languages Options you will need to ensure that Indic/Asian Language option is checked.
3. Use a browser that is capable of handling UTF-8 based pages (Netscape 6, Internet Explorer 5) with the Unicode Tamil font chosen as the default font for the UTF-8 char-set/encoding view. Unicode Tamil Fonts may be downloaded from here.
