Hello to OpenMRS community,

I’m Angelo from Benin (french speaking country in west africa). I got exposed to the open source community through the use of OMICs technology during my PhD in biochemistry in germany. I discover OpenMRS while I was struggling to implement a patient records database for a small community. OpenMRS appears to me as the best way to avoid re-creating the wheel. Unfortunately, OpenMRS does not exist in french and I would like to contribute to all efforts to make it available to the french community as weel.

I am ready and excited about any usefull contribution I could make to the work of the community.

Hi @dar01,

You’re warmly welcome to the community!

We look forward to your contribution to the community.


(Ellen Ball) #1618

@dar01 Welcome to the community. OpenMRS is available in French and other languages. We use French (and Kreyol) for our implementations in Haiti. Change your locale to French and you can see what’s already translated. You can contribute to translating the rest.


(Angelo Agossou Yao) #1619

@ball thanks for the reply. Good to know that, there is already an ongoing french translation work. I have joined the french group on transifex. Is it there anything else I should be are of about this translation work?


(Kimberley Manning) #1620

Hi everyone! I first heard of OpenMRS at a conference earlier this year where @cintiadr spoke very passionately about it and I’m really excited to have more time in my life now to get involved (had a very packed start to the year)! I work in devops in my day job but I’m looking forward to finding the best way to contribute - happy to do dev, infrastructure, helpdesk or even translation (German) :slight_smile:
