Is translating done on a voluntary basis?

Post by kie1988 » Mon Aug 27, 2012 5:23 am

I am wondering if I could offer to translate, is there a possibility that I will get paid? Even through donations? Or it is done on a voluntary basis?
Are there any translators working on an Arabic version? Arabic is not my first language but I have near native fluency. I would be glad to contribute.

As far as I know, nobody has ever gotten paid for their work on zoneminder. It's a free product and carries neither advertising nor sponsorship, I don't know where you expected the money to come from unless there are enough potential arabic users to fund you, but frankly it goes against the ethos of free software imo.
