At TinkerSpace, we believe in the power of language to unlock doors to knowledge and opportunity. It was with this belief that we embarked on a mission to bring Malayalam language support to Kobotoolbox. Our goal was clear: empower Malayalam-speaking communities with the tools they need to thrive in the digital realm.The journey began with a simple request for Malayalam language support. While the approval process experienced a slight delay, our determination did not wane. Once we received the green light, our team, comprised of dedicated volunteers and language experts, sprang into action.

In a focused, one-hour sprint, we achieved what seemed like a week's work. We meticulously translated 543 strings, integrating our mother tongue into the Kobotoolbox platform. But we didn't stop there. With a continued momentum, we turned our attention to another influential platform—Firefox. Our contributions added 171 new Malayalam strings, further solidifying our commitment to linguistic diversity.

These milestones are more than just numbers; they represent the potential for growth, education, and inclusivity. By localizing these tools, we're not only enhancing user experience but also ensuring that the Malayalam-speaking community has a voice and presence in the global tech landscape.

TinkerSpace's localization initiative stands as a testament to the impact collective effort and technology can have in breaking language barriers. We extend our heartfelt thanks to all the volunteers who made this possible, and we look forward to embracing more such initiatives in the future.
