Language packs for 16 languages available for Sunbird

Hi folks,
I meant to post this earlier, since a few days Stefan Sitter provides language packs for languages that have a working localization for Sunbird. We currently have language packs for the following languages:

  • Catalan (ca)
  • Czech (cs)
  • German (de)
  • Danish (da)
  • Spanish-Europe (es-ES)
  • Basque (eu)
  • French (fr)
  • Hungarian(hu)
  • Irish (ga-IE)
  • Italian (it)
  • Mongolian (mn)
  • Dutch (nl)
  • Polish (pl)
  • Russian (ru)
  • Slovenian (sl)
  • Slovakian (sk)

You can download and test these language packs from Stefan’s language pack website. Make sure to follow the instructions from that page to get Sunbird working in your language of choice.
