Willing to make using Tails easier in your own language? Welcome aboard!
Most of Tails developers are not native English speakers so you're more than welcome to correct or improve our English. For this, you can either follow the Git workflow or propose another way that suits you better to share your improvements with us.
You can help correct, improve, or complete the translations of Tails programs into your native language:
- For French, the translation team uses Git. Read its dedicated documentation for translators.
- For other languages, read translating with Transifex. Tails programs can be translated into more than 140 languages this way.
The translations are peer-reviewed and thus, you need to get into contact with a language team if you want to participate. In general, you can contact the translation teams via the mailing list for translators.
Translators should focus on translating and maintaining the core pages first, then on the rest of the website.
Currently, there are three active language teams:
and three new language teams are being set up:
If your language is not listed here, read the documentation to add a new language.
Translators coordinate on the tails-l10n mailing list (l10n stands for localization).
This is where important changes to translatable strings are announced. So, please subscribe to the list if you want to become a regular translator:
