CZI Essential Open Source Software for Science (EOSS) Award for 3D Slicer Internationalization

It is my distinct pleasure to announce that we have been awarded an Essential Open Source Software for Science (EOSS) grant from the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative (CZI), a philanthropy led by Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Dr. Priscilla Chan. The grant will support the new “3D Slicer in My Language” project to increase the accessibility of 3D Slicer in non-English speaking countries. We are thrilled to start developing a French version of 3D Slicer in collaboration with Cheikh Anta Diop University in Senegal thanks to the award. In the future, we plan to translate 3D Slicer to other languages to empower members of the global Slicer community to analyze their own data in their own language.

A post was split to a new topic: Fail to import DICOM data with special characters in it

Hi, spujol,

The 3D slicer in My Language project is interesting!
What is the current status of this project?
I am a Japanese, so I can help you to translate strings to Japanese language.
Multi-byte character sometimes cause problems like it does not work with paths including multi-byte characters. When you complete the project, I can strongly recommend 3D slicer to my colleagues and friends.

thank you,
