== Feedback ==
*Having the camp at RH office could be the biggest plus of the event . It helped the event both in terms of logistics and participants. Also since every l10n/i18n member is associated with RH there was atleast one helping hand for 3 newbies . Discussions deserve a special mention as the participation was duplex. I really liked the one on fonts . I would like the students to have more hands on experience translating and just wish that the efforts put in camps such as this should be concentrating on one language . More such events are very welcome . -- Pavithran

* The event has really helped CoFSUG to get a headstart on contributing to localization work. A lot needs to be done for Marathi and we are positively looking at contributing to some projects. We should organize one such camp in CoEP also so that more students can benefit. Let's try that in May/June. -- Abhijit A M (Uncode + CoFSUG)
 
* We have started its propagation in CoFSUG and people seem to be much interested in such kind of work. We shall really organize such an activity at College of Engineering, Pune [CoEP] so that more and more people can enjoy the whole process of Localization, as we did !! -- Ashwin , CoFSUG
