Almost a year since the last update. What has happened? A lot... The Swedish translations in GNOME 2.0 have been 100% ever since GNOME 2.0 was released (apart from when the occasional unannounced string breakages happen... *grin*). Currently I'm struggling with the GNOME 2.2 translations. I've got a lot of help from a new Swedish translator, Janne, recently, who now maintains the GIMP-Plugins and Gnumeric translations.
I have been appointed as a GNOME Translation Project contact person together with kmaraas, so probably means a lot more responsibility in bringing developers and translators of GNOME together and aid communication and so on, I would guess.

In the summer of 2002, I did my master thesis work. The report is in Swedish though. I and Lina (who I did the thesis work with) had some disagreements on how to present our work. We arrived at a compromise -- I managed to get through to write our report in LaTeX instead of Word, and she managed to get through that we should write it in Swedish instead of English. In retrospect, our professor was somewhat disappointed, since the final results of our work was interesting, but the report being in Swedish made sharing those results difficult. In any case, we succeeded with our work, and I'm a happy camper now. If I only could get finished with the other parts of my studies (those I need before I have my exam), life would be perfect...
