Translation



Welcome to the translation project for publiclab.org!

The goal of this project is to make Publiclab.org more genial and accessible to new and existing users and foster diversity.

The final result will be that publiclab.org can load in other languages according to what people have their own browser language preference set to.

What we're doing together is each contributing translations of the small bits of text that appear all around the website, like the sidebar, the header, and the footer.

Check out the series of activities below to get involved, thanks!

Translation prompts

By clicking this button, you enable small prompts around the site, for text which are not yet translated into the language you've selected. Click them, and you'll be prompted to provide a translation. You will need a Transifex account (see below).

The people in this list have signed up to see these prompts and help translate the website:
