Contributing to PrestaShop is not only about coding, it’s also about taking part in the PrestaShop translation project! This report will tell you how the software translations evolved in September 2023.
New strings are ready for translation
As you may have noticed, new strings were added to Crowdin on September 28. It’s usually not possible to add new strings outside the release of a minor or major version of PrestaShop but we had to do it to fix a bug. To go back to a 100% completion rate, those strings will need to be translated and validated. You can find the untranslated strings in the “8” file. Your project needs you! 💪
A few stats
- 6 members joined the project this month.
- 31 members were active on the project.
- A total of 22,888 words have been translated and 17,000 validated.
- All this in 22 different languages.
Thank you all very much for your involvement!

| Catalan | Chinese Traditional | Czech | Dutch | | English | French | Hungarian| Italian | | Persian | Spanish | Ukrainian |
18 languages are almost fully available:
| Greek | Korean | Portuguese | Slovak |
There are less than 2% of strings to translate and proofread! You can do it! 💪
Congratulations and a huge thank you to all of you, contributors! :party-popper:
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 translation percentage 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!
