What is the decathlon?
The MAC Decathlon is an athletic contest designed to assess participants fitness through a balanced set of ten physical tests, offering members a chance to challenge themselves while engaging in friendly competition with fellow club members. Participants must complete ten events spanning three categories: Conditioning, Speed/Skill, and Strength.
The Decathlon is a project coordinated by the South African software localisation organisation, Translate.org.za. During the Decathlon year we will assist volunteer translators to translate opensource software into their own languages and other languages. It is our hope to establish communities of translators who translate not just one program but at least 10 programs this year. The Decathlon is supported by a grant from the Open Society Institute.
