Help Translate Shutter to Sinhala

Captured by Shutter :)

I was browsing around Launchpad looking for stuff coming up in the new Ubuntu 11.04 and found Shutter.

Shutter is a feature-rich screenshot program. You can take a screenshot of a specific area, window, your whole screen, or even of a website – apply different effects to it, draw on it to highlight points, and then upload to an image hosting site, all within one window.

I also saw this in their Launchpad page

WE WANT YOU! Please help us to translate Shutter to every possible language.

Translate the main program and shutter plugins:

So I thought I’d help out and started translating to Sinhala. It wasn’t easy at first I had to setup some fonts and get a decent keyboard working.

Have a look at Adding Unicode Sinhala to Linux if your on Linux. I found the Sinhala transliteration keyboard to be the easiest to use.

Going along that path I found Type in Sinhalese – Google Transliteration

So if you can spare some time over the holidays help to complete translating Shutter.
