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 October!
➕ PrestaShop 8 is now available to the world 🎉
PrestaShop 8 is here! While it’s been translated into multiple languages already (thank you all for your contributions!), new translation strings are added regularly, so keep an eye out.
Of course, other languages are still available for translation, and you are more than welcome to help contribute to the different language projects!
Your project needs you! Are you able to proofread for the Spanish (Argentina), Galician or Flemish projects? If so your help is needed: the projects are currently almost fully translated, but not approved. Reach me on either Crowdin or Slack, I’d be more than happy to guide you. 🙌
Intersted in proofreading for any other language? Let me know! Your help is precious, and proofreaders are always welcome. 👏
A little teaser
A Translation Guide for the Crowdin translation project members, (aka you, contributors!) is on his way. This should make translation easier for everyone, and includes useful resources and tips!
If there is any topic you’d like to be explained in this guide, make your suggestion in the Slack translation channel. ✍️
💕 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 thb5309 who rushed into the efforts immediately!

Fully available languages
At the end of October, PrestaShop 8 was fully available (= 100% translated and validated) in 12 languages. That’s great! Thank you for your involvement. :tada:

Languages with the best evolution
The following languages had the best progress in October thanks to the translation community:
- French (+8% to reach 100% translated and validated)
- Romanian (+6% to reach 100% translated and 95% validated)
- Czech (+4% 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! :wink:
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.
