If at all possible, SecureDrop would be very happy to participate in the Localization Sprint you organize Thursday March 8th from 14:30 - 17:30 in the “Flyover Front” space at Las Naves during IFF. We understand there will be many applicants and we hope to be one of the beneficiaries of this initiative.
SecureDrop (https://securedrop.org) is a whistleblower submission system that media organizations can use to securely accept documents from and communicate with anonymous sources. Its localization started in 2017 and, thanks to the help of localizationlab, it is available in 11 languages (Arabic, English, German, Spanish, French, Italian, Norwegian, Dutch, Portuguese (Brasil), Turkish, Chinese). Our primary focus in 2018 is to localize SecureDrop to official languages in Europe and nearby (Dutch (Belgium), Portugues (Portugal), Czech, Hungarian, Swedish, Russian, etc.). It would also be nice to add languages spoken by people who are politically active or threatened (Breton, Catalan, Kurdish, etc.) because they are likely to be SecureDrop users.
Two SecureDrop developers (@heartsucker and @dachary) and the Director of Newsroom Digital Security of the Freedom of the Press Foundation will be at IFF. We will prepare a SecureDrop demonstration for the occasion and can make ourselves available to assist translators during the sprint. SecureDrop is a relatively small web application with less than 300 strings which makes it very suitable to sprints.
