Free software development and localization helper

Participation is absolutely an critical aspect for the success of a free software project. The more people contribute, the more likelihood a project will be successful. Free software projects are intend to be globalized, but they usually encounter problem when trying to recruit people out of the English world. Language and cultural differences become a barrier. The talk will take Linux kernel as an example to analyze why contribution from non-English world is important; how current development environment has barrier for people in certain areas of the world; and what we can do to solve this problem.
