Translating on Crowdin
Want to help translate PrestaShop into your language? Here's everything you need to get started.
If you wish to translate PrestaShop into your language, you have to start by joining our Crowdin project, available here: https://crowdin.com/project/prestashop-official
It's simple: if you don't have a Crowdin account yet,
- 1.Create an account by clicking on "Sign up",
- 2.Go back to the PrestaShop page and click on the language you wish to translate (please, do not pick a random language),
- 3.Click on "Join",
- 4.Tell us why you want to help translate this project as well as your background with PrestaShop software.
Once your membership has been approved by the team, you'll be able to contribute!
Once you have been accepted into the project by a team member, you will be able to translate strings into your language. To do this, simply select a string and start translating it. By default, Crowdin will show untranslated strings first.
Translated but unapproved strings will not appear in the PrestaShop software:
Availability in PrestaShop
Approved and translated
Note that only proofreaders can approve translations. If you wish to become a proofreader, check out Proofreading: All You Need to Know.
When a string is validated by a proofreader in Crowdin, it usually takes up to a couple of days before it's available in PrestaShop software.
This is because the catalog of approved strings is pushed to the software every day, or in other words, when "PrestaShop builds the project":
This is why you need to update your translations to benefit from the latest translation. To do this, go to International > Translations > Add/Update a language.
Thank you for your help! 🙌
