Contributing to PrestaShop is not only about the code, it’s also about taking part in the PrestaShop translation project! This report tells you how the translations of the software evolved in April.
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. ;-)

Congrats, and welcome to our new top contributors!
Remember, you can see who’s been contributing to our translation project thanks to the Translators page.
Fully translated languages
At the end of April 2019, PrestaShop 1.6.1 was fully available (= 100% translated and validated) in 31 languages:
For its part, PrestaShop 1.7.5 was fully available in 26 languages!
Languages with the best evolution
In comparison with March 2019, the following languages had the best progress thanks to the translation community:
- Albanian (+4% to reach 36% approved in 1.7)
- Serbian (Latin) (+2% to reach 77% approved in 1.7)
- Bengali (+2% to reach 43% translated in 1.7)
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).
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 email@example.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!
