It's Paul and Aniqa, from KDE's Promo team. 

We are making a video to present KDE Network at FOSSASIA


and we need a video of a you saying some words in your native language.

As you all do such a good job on the translations of KDE's apps and projects, 
we were wondering if you would like to help us.

We would like you to find a nice spot, maybe in the open, in a garden or park, 
and film yourself saying these words:

   "Start a KDE Network in your country now!"

That's it!

Right now our priority are messages in Asian languages, as we are currently 
making the video for FOSSASIA

So far we have

- Mandarin Chinese
- Korean
- Hindi
- Malayalam
- Urdu

We are missing... Well, everything else.

If you would like to help us, please take a look at these guidelines:


1. Get a friend to hold the camera/phone lengthways (landscape), not portrait
2. Find an interesting spot in a garden or park, or near a famous landmark in 
your city, maybe with a nice view behind you. Somewhere original, like at the 
top of a tall building or busy bazaar, works too!
3. Smile! Think of something funny or put a pencil between your teeth for 30 
seconds before starting
4. Wait for one second before speaking, say the words, and then wait another 
second before cutting
5. Speak loudly and clearly
6. Say the exact words "_Start a KDE Network in your country now!_" in your 
language or the nearest equivalent. Please do not say something different

(NOTE: If you would like to record another message about encouraging people to 
join KDE in your country, please do! Make a separate video and send it with 
your "Network" video and a transcription in your language and a translation in 
English of your message. We will probably be able to use it for any other 
video we make in the future.)

You can upload your video to


Use your name and the language as the name of the file, e.g.:


We will be showing the video with your contribution at FOSSASIA on April 9, at 
4:05 SGT (Singapore Time - UTC +8), so this is kind of urgent.

Thank you so much for your collaboration and for the excellent job you do 
translating KDE!

Kindest Regards

Paul Brown
