Andre started contributing with translations quite some time ago, but for whatever reason stopped contributing for a while. One day, completely out of the blue, he approached me and asked me to lend him a hand to get started again… fast forward a few years later, and Andre is without a doubt the most active and interested translator for the entire Ubuntu Brazilian team! From a timid pupil he’s become someone who can inspire and a role model for anyone who wants to contribute with the translation of open source software. After “suffering” my pestering for so long, he is also very active with the translation of upstream GNOME and maybe, with some more pestering, he may join other projects as well.
