Pick your favorite translation base and be sure to save them as UTF-8! The German and English ones are maintained by us and are in doubt always up to date.

Submit your translation

Once you're done, send all the files to our contact address with the language code (see above) mentioned in the subject:

We will check your submission and put it online. From there you can review it live on the site and send again any corrections or upcoming updates. You can always verify the translation progress with this handy tool! You will be notified additionally on every release with new strings.
