Here is the new report to inform you of what has been going on PrestaShop translation project on Crowdin this September 2015, a rather quiet month for our project.

All the figures and statistics are (still) based on the project.

Updated workflow

We’ve recently changed the workflow on Crowdin: it’s important you should translate in the “next-version” folder in priority. Strings will then automatically propagate to the “” folder, while the reverse won’t work. So if you’re working on, that’s double work for everybody. Read more about it here. And don’t hesitate to ask if you have some questions!

New languages

At the request of community members, we’ve recently added some new languages to the project. You can now translate PrestaShop in:

So don’t hesitate to join!

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 string, to make sure everyone benefits from the latest translations!

These languages (still) need you as proofreaders as well:

  • Turkish (94% translated vs 0% validated)
  • Slovak (78% vs 24%)
  • Ukrainian (99% vs 54%)
  • Galician (46% vs 11%)
  • Finnish (76% vs 50%)

A word from the community

Here is an update on the latest initiatives from members of the translation community.


Turkish translator ftugrul is trying to gather the Turkish community. Join the discussion on Crowdin forum to harmonize the translation and go forward with more proofreading. We do need more proofreading in Turkish, so make yourself known if you want to participate!
