Here is the latest report to inform you of what has been going on PrestaShop translation project on Crowdin lately (which means this last February).

But first, everything translation at PrestaShop isn’t necesserally taking place on Crowdin. Contributions can take different forms, and here’s more details about a few ones:

Side projects


We’re recently published a few videos to guide you when translating PrestaShop into Spanish. If you’re working on this language, watch it here and join the conversation on the forum! And thanks to Jesús who’s helping with all this!

Vietnamese installer

Vietnamese has reached a high level of completion, as already mentioned. The next step is now to complete the several XML files needed to have PrestaShop 100% translated. These files aren’t available on Crowdin, but you can find it on this open pull-request on Github, or within your local installaion (‘install/langs/en/data’ for the English version).

Some translations are missing, like country names (country.xml), so if you want to help, you can send your translation at [email protected], we’d be happy to include it the current the project.

And of course this is not about Vietname only: other languages can be updated too. You can contribute by committing directly on GitHub, or sending us your translations by email!

Now let’s get back to our Crowdin project, and the full report of its activity in February:

A few stats

  • Bulgarian
  • Croatian
  • Dutch
  • English
  • French
  • German
  • Italian
  • Lithuanian

Congratulations to the Vietnamese team, who did a huge work to fully translate and validate PrestaShop in Vietnamese! Thank you!

98-99% translated languages

PrestaShop was also almost fully translated (and/or validated) in these 7 languages:

  • Czech
  • Indonesian
  • Persian
  • Portuguese
  • Portuguese, Brazilian
  • Russian
  • Spanish

That’s 2 new languages in this group, thanks to the Czech and Portuguese contributors: děkuji! obrigado!

There isn’t much work left before we reach 100% for these languages, if you feel like you want to help, join the project!

Languages with the best evolution

In comparison with the previous month, the following languages had the best progress in February:

  • Arabic (+26% to reach 48% translated)
  • Finnish (+8% to reach 83% translated)
  • Slovak (+8% to reach 84% translated)
  • Korean (+6% to reach 18% translated)

February 2016 best translation progress

Languages that need (more) proofreaders

A translated string will not be available in PrestaShop as long as it is not validated. For this reason, it’s important we should keep a good level of validated strings vs. translated strings, to make sure everyone benefits from the latest translations!

A pretty good month for proofreading as Vietnamese has been fully approved. We’re back to 4 languages that require some proofreading at the end of February:

  • Turkish (95% translated vs 0% validated)
  • Slovak (84% vs 24%)
  • Ukrainian (99% vs 51%)
  • Galician (49% vs 11%)

February 2016 best translation progress

We have good hopes Slovak will evolve in the coming weeks as a few translators stepped forward to be part of the proofreading team. Finger crossed!

Like them, if you wish to help proofreading what has been translated, please contact me on Crowdin with the language you’d like to proofread. We need your help!

If you haven’t joined us on Crowdin yet, it’s 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 us know: we’ll include a word about it in the next monthly report.

Do you have a question, a remark? Don’t hesitate to leave a comment. See you next month!
