Thanks to a very active community, Simple Machines Forum is currently available in over 45 languages
. Even though we're proud of that fact, we continue to search for ways to improve the quality of our international support and to make new languages available, so that more people can benefit from the SMF software.
In order to provide higher quality language files, we've created an online tool allowing multiple users to work on the same language at the same time. This will make life a lot easier for translators and speeds up the time it takes for a translation to be released as a language package.
The tool allows us to take a different approach when it comes to translating the software. We used to require that translators would spent a lot of time translating the full language package. Now that the tool is in use, we can invite anyone who's interested in helping out, so that more people can make the job of translating a language lighter.
So, we're looking for new (and current) translators. A requirement to join the team of translators would be to have good skills in both English and the language you're translating to and that you can spend a significant amount of time on translating.
If you're interested in helping out with one of the languages currently available or a language not yet available, please send your application through this form:http://dev.simplemachines.org/translate_app.php
Note: In order to apply to become a translator, it is necessary to have a minimum of one post on the forum.
