    18 We are very pleased that with version 13.0 OSGeoLive has improved a lot on the python side and added many tools and also Jupyter documentation. With the introduction about Jupyter OSGeoLive can easily be used in Python trainings and it gives consideration to the rising usage and relevance of Python in geospatial architectures.
     18Nicolas Roelandt and Vicky Vergara's introduction of Transifex has significantly improved the translation process. During the FOSS4G community sprint a new Romanian translation was added. Zoltán Siki, one of the Hungarian translators, pointed out the need for the translation and will use it at GIS courses at University in Budapest.

    20 OSGeoLive 13.0 also shows how easy translation works with Transifex. Thanks to Nicolas Roelandt and Vicky Vergara for their work. At FOSS4G 2019 during the community sprint a team worked on the translation and we added Romanian as new language.

    22 Remarkable concerning translations is that Hungarian is translated completely. Zoltán Siki from the hungarian team pointed out the need of the translation and will use it soon at GIS courses at University in Budapest.
