Piwik is growing by leaps and bounds and we are proud to say we now have thirteen translations for the latest release! I would like to thank all the translators and reviewers who worked very hard to make sure Piwik is available to as many people as possible. The translations currently available are: English, Catalan, German, Spanish, French, Italian, Japanese, Dutch, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Traditional Chinese (NEW!) and Ukrainian.

See for example a screenshot of Piwik in Traditional Chinese (thanks to Eros for the translation!):

Currently we have six more translations in the works and there over 100 people working to make Piwik available in even more languages. This is a huge accomplishment and we are proud our users are willing to help out!

Most of the UI in Piwik can be translated. There are a few limitations (see related i18n ticket) that we will address soon: support for right to left languages, proper translations of graphs, advanced support for dates, etc.

How can I create a new translation file?

Maciej built a very simple plugin to help you translate Piwik very easily: on the left are displayed the English sentences to translate, and on the right a form where you can write the translation. At the end of the process you click the button, the file is automatically recorded, and the translation available in the UI for testing. The translation plugin can be found at http://dev.piwik.org/trac/ticket/171 if you want to help.

I want to help starting a new translation or improve existing translation…

If you want to help with translations, please contact Noah at translations (at) piwik.org

Thanks again for everyone who helped and I look forward to seeing even more translations become available!
