I want to translate Webmaker into my local language

Webmaker is a global movement with mentors and Maker Parties happening all over the world. Localizing the tools and website are a fantastic way to contribute.

Here's how:

Get a Transifex account

Transifex is the platform that we use to manage the localization workflow.

Sign up for a Transifex account and visit the Webmaker project here: https://www.transifex.com/projects/p/webmaker/

Transifex - signup button

Find your language

Click on the language that you want to localize and click the Transifex - join team button button

If your language is not listed, click the Transifex - create language button button.

Start translating!

Select the project you want to translate and hit the Transifex - translate now button button.

Projects are organized by each of the 3 Webmaker tools: Thimble, X-Ray Goggles, and Popcorn Maker, as well as the webmaker.org site and the Webmaker account management interface.

Your translations will be managed and deployed to webmaker.org from there.

Note: Translating can be more fun when you're doing it with friends! Why not have a Maker Party and translate together?
