Yatti supports the development of an English for Indonesia locale for Linux (en_ID).
While English is not widely spoken in Indonesia as a proportion of its total population, it is still used widely in business and the professions and by the urban middle class.
Probably 3-5% of Indonesia's 255 million people use English on a daily basis, or three times the English-speaking population of Singapore.
The en_ID locale conforms to Indonesian standards relating to country codes, currency, time and date formats.
The en_ID locale is currently used as a secondary default in the Ubuntu Indonesia distro.
The en_ID locale file is located here.
To install the locale on a Linux server or desktop system, open a terminal as the root user and enter the following:
wget -O en_ID.txt http://yatti.id/en_ID/en_ID localedef -i en_ID.txt --charmap=UTF-8 en_ID.UTF-8 locale-gen "en_ID.UTF-8" export LC_LANG=en_ID.UTF-8 export LC_TIME=en_ID.UTF-8 echo 'LANG="en_ID.UTF-8"' > /etc/default/locale echo 'LANGUAGE="en_ID:en"' >> /etc/default/locale update-locale LANG="en_ID.UTF-8" LANGUAGE="en_ID:en"
Submissions for improvements to this locale should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yatti supports the development of the Indonesian English spelling dictionary for LibreOffice.
Extension for LibreOffice is located here.
