Contributing to PrestaShop is not only about the code, it is also about taking part in the PrestaShop translation project! This report will tell you how the translations of the software evolved in March!
Have you ever wondered who was hiding behind a GitHub or a Crowdin username? Contributor interviews are a great way of getting to know the people who participate in the PrestaShop project. Since January, we have interviewed 4 contributors: Krystian Podemski, Lorenz Meyer, Jean-François Viguier, and Daniel Hlaváček.

💕 Many thanks to newcomers
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 Najibah Abu Bakar , waldemaremmrich, Дмитрий Маслов, Ростислав, and Dave Müller who rushed into the effort immediately!
A few stats
- 12 members were active on the project this month.
- A total of 19,514 words have been translated and 17,452 validated.
- All this in 12 different languages.
Thank you very much for your involvement!

Fully available languages
At the end of March, PrestaShop 1.7.8 was fully available (= 100% translated and validated) in 19 languages. That’s great! Thank you for your involvement.
|Bosnian||Catalan||Chinese simplified||Chinese traditional|
Thank you all for your contribution! And remember, in order to get back to a 100% completion rate, all the new 1.7.8 strings should be translated and validated… Your project needs you!
Korean is almost fully available. There is only 1% of strings to proofread. There isn’t much work left, so if you wish to help to proofread what has been translated, please send an email to email@example.com or write me (Julie Varisellaz) on Slack. Your help is needed!
Languages with the best evolution
The following languages had the best progress in March thanks to the translation community:
- Hungarian (+3% to reach 100% translated and validated)
- Albanian (+3% to reach 37% translated)
- Chinese simplified (+1% to reach 100% translated and validated)
A huge thank you to all the contributors!
Of course, this is highlighting the languages that made some progress with new translations; but it does not mean that the languages that are not mentioned here are not active. Indeed, some editing and rewriting may be going on, but the percentage of translation would not be modified (since the work happens on strings that are already translated). So let’s not forget about the work of other contributors! Thanks to you too!
Let’s keep in touch!
If you have not joined us on Crowdin yet, it is never too late!
You can also join the #translation channel of the PrestaShop open source Slack. On this channel, I share information about the translation project. You will also be informed about the publication of the Crowdin monthly report. Of course, you will also be able to ask questions, suggest ideas, or get in touch with other translators.
