Many existing translations need to be updated and new languages are welcome.

Why this is important

The future of Bitcoin is closely related to decentralization. Not just the network, but the jurisdiction of all of its users, miners and businesses. Widespread adoption increases resilience and provides incentives for countries and businesses to compete in a free market. Making sure everyone can benefit from Bitcoin is also important to create a fair and sustainable economy. Yet, most countries don't have as much information available in their own languages. Bitcoin.org can help to make a difference on this level. Bitcoin.org is one of the most visited website in the world, this is a great chance and opportunity for the Bitcoin community.

How to help

If you speak a language other than English, or if you know anyone who does, you can go to Transifex : https://www.transifex.com/projects/p/bitcoinorg/ and click to join the team for your language. You can then translate texts and review / improve existing translations. New coordinators (with a good level of experience for their respective language) would be helpful for some of these teams.

When a translation is nearly complete, I usually create an editable live preview to help translators to complete their work. A few good quality translation is always worth more than many poor quality translations. All texts need to be translated and reviewed by at least two different persons (peer-reviewed), unless perhaps if you're a professional translator. It's also always welcome to ask for questions if you are unsure about anything, this can help preventing accidental changes.

BTW, there is also many other projects listed on this page which can be translated:
http://bitcoin.org/en/support-bitcoin

Donations / Bounties

Feel free to offer a bounty if you want to incentivize people to work on translations. You're also very welcome if you want to pay a professional translator directly (here's some accepting bitcoins) . With the recent rise in the price, there is probably some bit-millionaire who would like to help Bitcoin reaching new horizons?

Live previews / Diff

Live previews are updated hourly on http://bitcointx.us.to/, please contact me to add your language.

Differences with version published on bitcoin.org can be viewed by appending /diff to the url (e.g. http://bitcointx.us.to/es/diff)

Simple changes can be previewed without waiting for the live previews to update: https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin.org#previewing

Edit: If anyone here can forward this message in the local subsections of bitcointalk, that would be a very useful thing to do.

There should be a version in Hindi as well.

Indians want to love Bitcoin... if only they knew what it was...


Buy a TREZOR! Premier BTC hardware wallet. If you're reading this, you should probably buy one if you don't already have one. You'll thank me later.

Someone created the Hindi team but finally didn't start working on translations. I would be happy to see anybody take that task too. Could you (or anyone else) ask for it in the India subforum?
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?board=89.0

There's been a lot of new members in the last days, especially in the Spanish team, that's encouraging. Not all of them started working on translations but that's a good start!

Thanks! I just accepted your request.

Sure, there's already a lot of work done in this team, it would be great to have it completed so it can be published! You can go on Transifex (as stated in the first post) and click to join the team. I will accept your request in the next hours (or the coordinator of the team will take care of it before me).

Weird, I probably closed a tab too fast. Now it should be OK I guess. Sorry for that.

The french translation is dreadful. (First page) Subtitle alone would make anyone flee for their lives.
Code:
Bitcoin est le moyen le plus simple d'échanger de l'argent à peu de frais
*shivers*
I'll try to submit something better (for free), just give me some time.

[OVER] RIDDLES 2nd edition --- this was claimed. Look out for 3rd edition!
I won't ever ask for a loan nor offer any escrow service. If I do, please consider my account as hacked.

I am french and I can tell you this is much better than before, but perhaps worse than what you want to submit Smiley .

So sure, improvements are always appreciated. If this string is already approved, you can send me a message or open an issue on Transifex so I can review your changes and apply them.

I'll try to keep this thread up to date with the status of translations on bitcoin.org.

So far there's been a very interesting number of new members in many different teams. Many languages are getting closer to being fully translated, but more help is still very useful and appreciated.
