1.7.6 catalog ready for translation

Right on time! As you were told in the previous Crowdin Monthly, the 1.7.6 translation catalog is now available. Pushed on Crowdin last week, it works the same than usual: add comments to spot grammar mistakes, context or if it leads to some confusion so that it could be corrected for the 1.7.6 release!

Special thanks to newcomers

Many people subscribe to the project(s) of their choice each month, but not so many start translating straightaway. For that reason, we would like to thank the ones that kind of rush into the effort immediately, aha! So lot of love to the dedicated lapakkita140, oaes, slicknux, taniacr, valterlo, and xabilar. See you soon on Crowdin… and PrestaShop. ;-)

A few stats

  • 23 members were active on the project this month.
  • A total of 13,642 words have been translated and 54,610 validated.
  • All this in 21 different languages.

Thank you for your involvement!

Best translation progress for April 2019

Thanks 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 these proofreaders! Thank 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 we should keep a good level of validated strings vs. translated strings, to make sure everyone benefits from the latest translations!

At the end of April 2019, some languages would still benefit from some proofreading:

  • Spanish, Argentina (100% translated vs 0% validated in 1.7).
  • Galician (100% vs 62% in 1.7).
  • Spanish, Venezuela (53% vs 17% in 1.6).
  • Chinese Simplified (100% vs 71% in 1.7).
  • Tagalog (52% vs 24% in 1.6).

Languages that need proofreading

If you wish to help to proofread what has been translated, please contact us with the language you’d like to proofread: just send an email to translation@prestashop.com. We need your help!

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 us know: we’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!
