Are you afraid to be involved in OpenStack community? Are you still hesitating to be an OpenStacker as you might think it’s too difficult for you to be a code contributor? Here is an opportunity for you to be an OpenStacker RIGHT NOW, RIGHT HERE.

You can start as an I18n translator if you 1) are comfortable with your native language and 2) have passion for localization. We have hands-on demonstrations and guidance on how to be a translator for your native language.
