Hi Mehmet,

first of all welcome at Apache OpenOffice. No, you need no further
permission you can simply start. But it is good to organize it in a way
that is best for all of us, you who work on the translation and others
who do the integration later.

Do you have experience with translation and po files already? Do you can
start work offline with for example POEdit? If yes I will prepare a set
of po files for you immediately.

Everything else can we see later...

Do you know other people who might be interested to help you? I think it
is always good to have more people working on 1 language, it's often
very useful to have people doing a review etc.

Or for example organize a translation party, coming together in one
place and work together on the translation. I remember 1 project in the
past where a group of people translated the whole office in 5 days or so.

In general we should think about ways to attract more volunteers and how
we can increase the fun factor.

But again welcome on board
