Back to OS with

Finally I am here again to announce that I am again working in open source field. This time with working on a surveyor application named LimeSurvey.
These days I was busy translating (70% translated by now) and doing some patches to make LimeSurvey support translation better.
Soon I have to work on the admin templates and some RTL bugs too (except the RTL bug related to FireFox :D)
Open Source ATM

These days I have refered a lot of time to Iranian Banks' ATMs. Their UI is teribble. (I don't know enough about their engine ...)
Some images should be changed, some texts should be replaced, some working flow should be fixed, ...
I think the developers doesn't know enough about UI design and their customer needs. So the only remaining option is Open Source ATM . If one of those applications for ATM, was open source, then every one (me too) could go and fix these terrible bugs in them.
Today I saw an image of " United States Dollars " while the ATM gave me " I.R. IRAN Rials " ... GOD Bless Them ;)
Working on GCompris

These days I am working on localization and customization of Free Educational Software GCompris. It is a great open source application for kids under 10 (and higher 2). It has at least 50 games for children (from add 2 number, to chess against the computer) ...
The code was nice, but sometimes non-English comments and codes made me sick! The function names and variables of some games were all in another language. Think of that! How should I read that amazing source code :D
Anyway, it is near the end and I will finish my work in this week... I hope the developer don't continue coding like this ;)

Phorum 5: Persian Translation, Localization and Customization

With the help of Elnaz Sarbar and Meelad Zakaria, Phorum 5 translated and customized.
Two major problem about doing this:
  • Making the forum RTL. It has not this feature in it! Designed as to be LTR always!!!
  • Making it to work with both Firefox and IE. As some of our users is going to use the forum in Firefox (We shipped Firefox 1 in Sharif Linux 2) and Firefox has some problems with RTL support...
