Project news

The Hebrew project is progressing!

In just a month, the Hebrew project went from 63% to 83% translated and validated, an increase of 20%! What a great evolution! :scream: Congratulations! Special thanks to danielshapiro9 who has joined us just about a month ago and who has already translated 26,091 words. Thank you for your involvement! And of course, thank you to the other translators of the Hebrew project!

:two_hearts: Special thanks to nanosim2

Many people subscribe to the project(s) of their choice each month, but not so many start translating straight away. For that reason, we would like to thank the ones who rushed into the effort immediately! So lots of love to the dedicated nanosim2!

A few stats

  • 39 members were active on the project this month.
  • A total of 37,492 words have been translated and 37,821 validated.
  • All this in 24 different languages.

Thank you for your involvement!

Best translation progress for November 2020

A huge thank you to all the contributors!

Of course, this is highlighting the languages that made some progress with new translations; but it doesn’t mean that the languages that aren’t mentioned here aren’t active. Indeed, some editing and rewriting could be going on, but the percentage of translation wouldn’t be modified (since it’s working on strings that are already translated). So let’s not forget about the work of other proofreaders! Thanks to you too!

Languages that need (more) proofreaders

A translated string will not be available in PrestaShop as long as it is not validated. For this reason, it’s important to keep a high level of validated strings vs. translated strings, to make sure everyone benefits from the latest translations!

At the end of November, some languages would still benefit from some proofreading:

  • Spanish, Argentina (98% translated vs 13% validated).
  • Esperanto (60% translated vs 19% validated).
  • Spanish, Venezuela (51% translated vs 11% validated).
  • Galician (98% translated vs 58% validated).
  • Spanish, Mexico (91% translated vs 56% validated).

Languages that need proofreading

If you wish to help to proofread what has been translated, please contact PrestaShop with the language you’d like to proofread: just send an email to translation@prestashop.com. Your help is needed!

If you haven’t joined us on Crowdin yet, it’s never too late! 😉

If you want to gather your fellow translators to work towards a better harmonization, start a glossary, or anything else, do let me know: I’ll include a word about it in the next monthly report.

Do you have a question, a remark? Don’t hesitate to leave a comment. See you next month! :raising_hand:
