Do you speak PrestaShop? – February 2021 edition
Where you'll learn that Esperanto is now available in the back office
Contributing to PrestaShop is not only about the code, it is also about taking part in the PrestaShop translation project! This report will tell you how the translations of the software evolved in February!
Esperanto is finally available in the back office 🎉
A few weeks ago, Esperanto was not available in PrestaShop’s back office. I’m glad to announce that this issue has been solved! In your back office, go to International > Translations > Add/Update a language and select ‘Esperanto’ in the dropdown list.
Please note that not all translated strings have been validated yet. Therefore, these strings won’t be available in the back office. If you would like to help with proofreading, do not hesitate to contact me.
💕 Special thanks to newcomers
Many people subscribe to the project(s) of their choice each month, but not so many start translating straight away. For that reason, we would like to thank the ones who rushed into the effort immediately! So lots of love to the dedicated Jonas Kriaučiūnas, Begi Ganellari, Robin Pokorný, Thommas, Sevindj, u50, and Mohamed Ali Rajab.
A few stats
- 35 members were active on the project this month.
- A total of 12,443 words have been translated and 9,468 validated.
- All this in 25 different languages.
Thank you for your involvement!

Languages with the best evolution
The following languages had the best progress thanks to the translation community:
- Spanish, Mexico (+11% to reach 67% validated)
- Esperanto (+9% to reach 78% translated)
- Persian (+5% to reach 100% translated 🎉)
A huge thank you to all the contributors!
Of course, this is highlighting the languages that made some progress with new translations; but it does not mean that the languages that are not mentioned here are not active. Indeed, some editing and rewriting could be going on, but the percentage of translation would not be modified (since it is working on strings that are already translated). So let’s not forget about the work of other proofreaders! Thanks to you too!
If you have not joined us on Crowdin yet, it is never too late! 😉
If you want to gather your fellow translators to work towards a better harmonization, start a glossary, or anything else, do let me know: I will include a word about it in the next monthly report.
