LibreOffice on stage at the Libre Software World Conference in Zaragoza

The Internet, November 9, 2011 - The Document Foundation (TDF) announces
LibreOffice 3.4.4, an improved version of the award-winning free office
suite for Windows, Mac and Linux. LibreOffice has recently won
InfoWorld's BOSSIE Award 2011 as Best of Open Source Software, and the
Open World Forum Experiment Award of Most-Popular Software.

SUSE's Andras Timar, who manages the LibreOffice localization effort,
says,  "Thanks to the contribution of Michael Bauer, a volunteer who
took the long-time-abandoned Scottish Gaelic translation and produced a
complete UI localization in just a few months, LibreOffice 3.4.4 adds
yet another native-language version, bringing the total to 105. This
shows the unparalleled value of copyleft licenses for end user software,
as LibreOffice is now the most-important office suite when it comes to
protecting cultural heritage worldwide, especially when the number of
native speakers is not sufficiently attractive for large corporations to
devote localization resources to."

Today, TDF and LibreOffice will also be on stage at the Libre Software
World Conference (LSWC) in Zaragoza, where Jesus Corrius - a deputy
member of the TDF Board of Directors - will keynote about "TDF: the home
of LibreOffice". LSWC is the most-prominent free software event in
Spain, and the presence of a member of the TDF Board of Directors is a
testimonial of the efforts that the project is devoting to developing a
large and diverse Spanish-speaking community, in which each local
community in Europe and the Americas can grow and thrive within a single
global project.
