We started the project in July 2015 and already 43 % of OTRS is translated into Thai. Right now, we are only missing a translation of documentation and we urgently need reviewers of the translations to ensure a high quality.
Bangkok, Thailand (PRWEB UK) 8 February 2016
OTRS Group, the world’s leading provider of open-source and cloud-based service management software solutions, is announcing today the continuing translation of its open source ticket system OTRS into Thai. The translation was initiated by the Malaysian subsidiary OTRS Sdn. Bhd. on the localization platform Transifex, where the open source ticket system OTRS is currently being translated into 57 languages.
Chee Peng Lee, Managing Director of OTRS Sdn. Bhd. in Malaysia, is thrilled about how fast the project is proceeding: “We started the project in July 2015 and already 43% of OTRS is translated into Thai. Right now, we are only missing a translation of documentation and we urgently need reviewers of the translations to ensure a high quality. I hope more users will participate in the project and feel the positive spirit of creating something great together - a software that can help to make the business communication of every company in Thailand more transparent and efficient.”

From the beginning of open source software, projects like Google, Modzilla or OTRS have always been driven forward by large communities of users who contributed new features, translations and bug fixes without receiving any compensation other than the free-to-download software.
Christopher Kuhn, COO of OTRS Group, explains why users still contribute to an open source ticket system like OTRS: “Since OTRS was started in 2003, our contributing users have made this ticket system globally recognized for its role in improving the work of an IT help desk and business communication as a whole, completely free. As compensation for their work, our users get a better system they can use that helps them make their business more successful. That’s how self-interest becomes something good for everybody. And it’s widely known that open source software often has a better code structure than proprietary software as more people review it and report bugs.”
