Self-Introduction: John Charron - Fedora Translation Project

Mother tongues: English and French
Other language: Italian
French -> English
English -> French

French -> Italian*
*Although Italian is not my mother tongue, I would like to do some French to Italian translation. Having a good number of contacts, the final version of any such translations will be proofread and corrected by a person whose mother tongue is Italian before being submitted.

Linux and Fedora are relatively new to me and so is ICT. As translator, I don't yet know what aspects of the Fedora Project would interest me most. Although the translation of material related to my areas of specialization interests me (programs for amateur and professional musicians, electronic dictionaries, translation software, applications for foreign language training, etc.), I would also be interested in translating more technical documentation on various ICT-related topics. I will be studying computer science at the local university here in Montpellier from September 2007 and would like my work for the project to be both a contribution and a learning experience.
In addition to having an excellent working knowledge of general applications (word processing, spreadsheets, multimedia applications, Internet, etc.) and typing from 50 to 60 words per minute, I am learning more and more about Linux, scripts, UNIX commands and some basic programming in C++, and am really enjoying it all.
I am looking forward to participating in the Fedora Translation Project and eager to becoming more involved in the Fedora community!
P.S. - I need cvsdocs membership approval (see below) and may need some help getting started as well. Many thanks.
