Nice to hear about your interest in organizing a localization sprint.
Localization sprints help to get people involved and contribute the
whole dedicated time at the sprint for translating. This involves more
of discussions and interactions within the community, effective &
productive and quality translations helping to increase the translation
Am sorry I could not understand the website and the language. I am from
India and have listed down how we do things here. Hope this could be of
some help to you.
In India, we organize such L10n sprints both online & through physical
meetups. You need to decide first how the task is to be divided - Maybe
each person take one module/folder depending on the size or maybe you
can assign one file to each, whichever works for you guys!! To start
with you can have online sprints.
Requirements for online sprints :
1. Discuss with your community members and fix a date and time in such a
way that you get more participation. (Maybe it can be one or two days
event too depending on your time)
2. Decide an IRC channel to conduct this online sprint.
3. Inform the community well in advance and make sure you communicate to
all through mailing lists, social media etc
4. Get all the participants on this IRC channel on the date and at the
5. Take a roll call, get each others names, then give all an
introduction on how things work in your community and about the
Libreoffice translation project (If there are any new members this is
6. Start working on the files/folders decided. You can discuss on IRC
whenever people have doubts on certain strings or phrases or word
meanings and get going.
7. Please note it would be good to note down the translation start
status so that you can measure the amount of work completed and how much
you have achieved end of the day/sprint.
Requirement for physical meetups :
1. Decide on a venue with good internet connection where you can
accommodate all the participants (All participants must bring their
laptops else if the venue is any school or college lab, ensure you have
enough number of systems with all the translation requirements)
2. Fix a date and time (Could be one or two day event)
3. If you have new members, give a small session on how translation
projects work in your community, about the guidelines and style guides
you use for translations. As per requirement you can decide on the
amount of time to be spend for this session.
4. Get going with the translations as mentioned above.
Hope you have got an idea about how we work during such sprints here.
Let me know if this was of any help or if you have any questions, would
be more than happy to help.
All the best.

As for the sprint, maybe other will have ideas, I've never done that.
