From the start, Simple Machines Forum has been made by many people around the globe and has been translated and supported in many languages. The software has always been developed with localization in mind.  Our translators provide a large number of translations in a relatively short time frame and the number of translations is still growing.

To stress the importance of internationalization, Simple Machines has created the Internationalization Team. They will supervise translations, develop new concepts and ideas for better internationalized software & support and facilitate other teams to be more localization-aware.

So, what can you expect in the future?
  • Better and more personalized support in your country and language
  • Software development that is even more focused on localization characteristics
  • Translation in more languages and more things translated (site translations, modifications translations, etc.)


What can you do to help?
  • We are always looking for translators for any of the non-English languages. See this topic.
  • Post your suggestions for the new team in this topic. What can Simple Machines do to improve support for your country or language?

It looks very good, always thought it would be very nice if (for example) the Docs section was translated into as many languages as possible.

Many times, when someone asks support, is sent to these Docs, and then the people say he doesn't know nothing English.

--

Another aspect, would be good if the translation of MODs have a system similar to the translations of Forum.

Or maybe a more "primitive", for example, could be "post type", but with xml downloadable.

In this case, the MOD only will be include the English translation, but the user also could download the translation if it is already available.

M-DVD: Some of your suggestions are already concidered ;)

However it is more imortant right now that SMF is fully translated into those languages already available.

I only use one language (English), but I think that it is great that SMF is internationalizing the software!

I've started using Launchpad for translating my mod. It's a great site.

Like it's already said before here, these translations are planified, we only wait that the system is ok to can do it.

So just wait patiently and it will be done. ;)

Happy to see finally this team. I hope we'll do a good job to satisfy a maximum of people.

I see the team went with Sepia for the badge then. Couldn't come up with anything better? :P

Anyway, congrats to the new two people. :P

There some problem with Hebrew, the translation are OK, but there is no RTL support for Babylon template (default).
You should add transformed to Hebrew default templates.

Cause only translation is not enough for Hebrew and Arabic.

translation of what?

this one isn't ok?

http://download.simplemachines.org/?languages;lang=italian
I've problems with the UTF-8 version... if I try to download it from the admin dedicated area SMF says there aren't files to download.
Instead the non-utf8 package works properly...
