Actions taken and further developments
Marina Latini AKA deneb_alpha, studied Computer Science at the University of Perugia, and is a free software advocate since 2007, promoting free software and open standards. In 2010, she was one of the first Italian members of the LibreOffice community. She has also been an active member of the Fedora Project from 2009 to 2013, and she is an openSUSE advocate since October 2011 and an openSUSE board member from February 2019.
Marina co-founded Associazione LibreItalia and has been involved in several events, migrations and training related to LibreOffice. She worked previously at migrations and trainings to LibreOffice for several Public Administrations and private customers. From January 2020 she works at SUSE as Maintenance Release Coordination Engineer and when she is not following her passion for computers and for Geeko she is a mad goalkeeper, an astronomy geek (which is where her nickname originates from) and plays the accordion.
The last updated Italian dictionary available in the main LibreOffice codestream comes from 2010-2011.
The Italian localization team, together with the Italian LibreOffice Community is restarting the maintenance and update of the language tools available for the Italian language.
The presentation will give a status update, will describe the challenges encountered and will provide updated documentation for people interested to contribute.
