💕 Many thanks to March newcomers

Many people subscribe to the project(s) of their choice each month, but not so many start translating straight away.

For that reason, I would like to thank moqlah and Aitor Salaberria (a_mento) who rushed into the efforts immediately. 👏

A few stats

  • 21 members joined the project this month.
  • 30 members were active on the project.

Thank you all very much for your involvement 🙌

Bosnian Catalan Chinese (CN) Chinese (TW) Czech
Dutch Farsi French German Greek
Hungarian Italian Korean Polish Portuguese (BR)
Slovak Spanish (ES) Ukrainian

Thank you for your involvement. 🎉

Almost there!

Romanian, Lithuanian, Danish, Swedish, and Estonian are almost fully available. There is only 1% of strings to translate and proofread! 💪

Congratulations and 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 may be going on, but the percentage of translation would not be modified (since the work happens on strings that are already translated). So let’s not forget about the work of other contributors! Thanks to you too!

Let’s keep in touch!

If you have not joined us on Crowdin yet, it is never too late! 😉

You can also join the #translation channel of the PrestaShop Open Source Project’s Slack. On this channel, I share information about the translation project. You will also be informed about the publication of the Crowdin monthly report. Of course, you will also be able to ask questions, suggest ideas, or get in touch with other translators.

Thanks, everyone! 🙌
