**Translating the Tatoeba UI**

Hi there, everyone! How are you doing? Hope you're doing great. Valentine's day is coming up... Can you fell the sweetness? :D

Today I'd like to talk about a very import thing that, let's say, has been forgotten? / is unknown for many users? : Tatoeba's UI (User interface) can be translated into your native language! :D

Some stats: (edited)

According to, only three languages are "ready to use" (it means, all the strings have been translated): English (the source) and Italian. → (February 8th, 2020 7h17 pm BRT (GMT -3))

Some languages which sentences have been posted recently and their status on Transifex (the platform we use to translate the UI)

strings that haven't been translated (missing translation)

Czech ► 507
Polish ► 543
Lithuanian ► 1,279
Russian ► 16
Spanish ► 58
Ido ►1,344
Berber ►
Korean ► 577
Japanese ► 444
Hungarian ► 902
Dutch ► 146
Toki Pona ► hasn't been requested on Transifex
Danish ► 1,320
Hebrew ► 1,577
Yiddish ► hasn't been requested on Transifex
Mandarin Chinese ► 747
Kabyle ► 30

There are other languages I haven't mentioned here. Some others haven't been requested on Transifex. (

In case you're interested in helping us, please contact me and I'll gladly help you. In case your language isn't in there, no problem: We can add it :)


Thank you! / Danke! / Grazie! / ¡Gracias!/ Obrigado!

PS.: (Thanks, Aiji) As far Tatoeba gets updated, new strings need to be translated. It's good to check Transifex weekly ;)

PPS: There are some translators for some of these languages (I promise I'll bring these stats). However, all of us need time for ourselves and some people just left the project or just had another issues. So more people join, more the UI gets translated ;)

PPPS: Thanks everyone who has joined yesterday (Feb 8, 2020), today (Feb 9, 2020) who joined the project months, years ago and will join it :)

Note that every time a string is modified, when we update the website's interface, it will need to be (re)translated on Transifex. Therefore, if somebody wants to keep some interface up-to-date, they have to go check on Transifex once in a while.
