I'm a co-developer of the KDE project. My main goal and task is to ensure that KDE works flawlessly in those many supported languages. I maintain the i18n package as well.

Besides that, I also coordinate (in my spare time) a loose group of Czech translators. :-)

About 4 months ago, I was hired by SuSE CR to work full-time on i18n and KDE in general. Recently, I've taken over the role of SuSE Linux 7.2 CZ release coordinator. In my free time in SuSE, I'm trying to help with KOffice as well (mainly KPresenter).

That's about it -- no piquant details about my personal life. ;-)

I've recently joined the Packagers department which means this is my third (different!) job in SuSE :-)

Meanwhile I became KOffice ( release coordinator; unfortunately it is currently the only thing in KDE I have time for due to assignments and amount of work in SuSE :-/

News from the localization: we've completed several new features including automatic corrections and texts, translated help with fulltext searching and also a brand new Sparc/Solaris port. We have the most complete localized version of OOo available to date.

KOffice: been hacking on some new date/time functions for KSpread over the weekend

Phewww, long time I haven't written anything here :)

We ( have successfully finished the Czech localization of OpenOffice, together with lots of extra goodies (spellchecker, hyphenation, correct typographical quotes etc.) Boy, OOo is such a _mass_ of code.
Neverthless, I'm coming back to code on KDE and maintain i18n in there, this time fulltime! Yay ;) As a sidenote: I also move back from Prague to Olomouc, home sweet home. ;)

Finally an update after a longer time :)

I've been recently hacking KSpread, filling it up with some missing statistics functions. Well, to be honest, there were none to the date. I ended up with 19 brand new functions, ready in KOffice CVS for you to try out.

(I should probably mention that some of the necessary routines were taken from the OpenOffice spreadsheet app; long-live open source :-)

I've put some new photos on my home page, mostly from our holiday trips all over Europe. Enjoy :)

P.S. Sorry, the texts are in Czech only for now, stay tuned for English verion. ;)
