Everything is still available in our source code, but starting with 
version 3.4 the policy changed: we only release language packs when we 
have a real person or team actively taking care of it.

The Afrikaans translation is in good shape, with 12K words needing 
attention (i.e., untranslated or needing review). But nobody is 
maintaining it at the moment.

To release OpenOffice 3.4.1 in Afrikaans, you or a small team should 
update and complete the translation. The tools are very easy to use and 
the only skill you will need is (obviously!) knowing Afrikaans.

Want to give it a try? Come to our localization discussion list: send an 
empty e-mail to to request 
subscription, answer the confirmation request you will receive, then 
write to stating you would like to have a 
look at what must be done to get OpenOffice 3.4.1 released in Afrikaans.
