The Apache Software Foundation runs a Pootle Translate service to allow its projects an easy, cooperative way to localize their products. This guide describes how to use Pootle in the Apache OpenOffice project. More than 40 languages (out of the 120+ languages OpenOffice supports) are maintained in Pootle and more coming soon.

For an introduction to the localization process read http://openoffice.apache.org/translate.html and for a more general overview start at http://openoffice.apache.org/get-involved.html.
