We wanted to share the latest on the Amara Localization Project.
If you have any questions or ideas share here, we always love to hear!
Volunteers needed to help translate Amara!
Amara’s localization project is open to anyone interested in making the Amara site more easily accessible in many languages.
Here’s a few that need your help now;)
It's easy to get started!
Simply go to Transifex to create a user account and you can begin contributing in the language of your choice
Search for Amara and click on "Amara" to go to the page for the Amara Localization Project.
Changes made will take effect after the next software deploy. (Typically every 1-2 weeks, but sometimes it may take a bit longer.)
Here's a quick guide to getting started on Transifex
This will take you to the team page for that language
There you'll find a button for applying to join the team
Once you are member of the language team, you can start translating
The English content is divided in short passages ("strings") on the left and right
You have corresponding boxes for writing your translation
At the bottom, there is a link to Transifex support, which has a section for translators.
Thank you for your help in supporting our mission
of Working to Build a More Open, Collaborative World
Thank you for this very good introductory presentation, Rieann.
Just a little detail: your screenshot of Amara’s Localization Project shows the languages where translations are already most advanced. So volunteers who can translate into the 78 other project languages are most welcome to join!

Thank you for your remark, mnnnn. However, as Rieann explained, the Amara Localization Project on Transifex gives these updates in real time (well, almost real time).
