Multi-language support for steemit.com is here!

Steemit.com now supports multiple languages!

First and foremost: Thank You Translators

A big thank you to all of the translators who have helped translate steemit.com into their native language!

Without the hard work of these amazing community members none of this would have been possible.

Our Awesome Translators


@roxane (fr), @sweetsssj (chinese), @gargon (sp), @wartrapa (sp), @pgarcgo (sp), @stella87s (italian), @charlesx (italian), @thenightflier (italian), @awesomianist (malaysian), @lemouth (fr), @bhuz (italian)

How it works

For non-logged-in users, steemit.com automatically detects and displays the user’s language based on their browser settings. Logged in users have the option to toggle their language from within their profile settings page.

Five languages are currently supported: English, Spanish, Russian, French, and Italian. More languages are in the process of being added.

If you encounter any text that is not properly translated while you are browsing the site, we encourage you to submit an issue or pull request to the condenser GitHub repository:
https://github.com/steemit/condenser

How to help

Becoming a steemit translator is a great way to help grow your native language community. For steemit.com, we use a specialized localization platform that allows us to do agile and continuous language support. This enables our current translators to spread the load. The more translators we get, the easier the task becomes for the individual translators.

Please e-mail [email protected] with the language you would like to help translate and you too can become a part of our international translation team that is helping to make steemit.com a welcoming community for all!

World class multi-language support

The Steemit team views multi-language support for steemit.com as a top priority, and these changes are only the beginning of our efforts toward that mission to offer a world-class experience to all users of the platform, regardless of their native language.

Our multi-language support has only just started, and we are looking forward to our platform supporting many diverse native languages!

Thanks again to our amazing translators, and of course … Steem on!

Happy to support with German if you need more help with that.

Hattest Du damals irgendwas erreicht? Weil das Thema gerade wieder aufkommt ...

Nice addition!

What an amazing project! It's great to hear that you have made multi-language support one of your top priorities. I'd love to support the team with another language.
You've got a new email :-)

Yes I really like this project!

What about RTL support? Hebrew and Arabic still look awful on steemit.com.

I'll be happy to help translate it if someone can fix the alignment.

(self upvoted for visibility please don't flag me)

If you translate, alignment will come

If you help me git, I'll translate it in no-time.

I just... I am not a developer. I am just trying to bring some Israelis here. Give me a language file like busy.org has and I am all over that. You'll have the Hebrew translation in hours. It'll look like poop with the alignment off, though. Like it does on busy.org.

  ·  2 years ago (edited)

I just joined to steemit and already working on Arabic Translation for the file you just mention. and will email the translation to [email protected]
@masrawy for Arabic

Great job

Just email [email protected] with the language you'd like to help translate and we'd be happy to add you into our system. It certainly does not require that you be a developer. It's simple and intuitive. Thanks for your interest!

Finally, thanks you!

Please don't forget to mention @asbear for Korean!

I love watching this platform evolve right infront of my eyes, i do however have one question ;
This will sort of relate to other social media platforms
Some have a button that translates what ever post you are viewing into your own language - perhaps that is something to look into, so that the language barrier is even thinner ; as i still read some posts that have english title and picture, although the post itself is in a different language .
This was something i ran into just the other day while scrolling through new posts and it had caught my attention that there was no translation on what looked to be a very informative post even though there was also some replies by the creator that were in english as well .

Just thinking out loud ; so to speak .

I have submitted the pull request for Chinese. I don't know why it's still pending.

This is a really good thing because I believe that the steemit platform is something that could really be huge if the rest of the world starts using it as well.

Anybody Gide me for using of streemit

Omg!!!! Whaaaaaaattt! This is amazing for everyone using steamit and has had trouble explaining what they want to say in their native language.

Please put the translation project to crowdin. I'm so exited to join as a translator, especially for Bahasa Indonesia. I'm waiting for the chance...😊

I would very much like to help on the cause...

Más que un saludo. La expresión de las personas o una sonrisa refleja el saludo ( claro eso es cuando el saludo es en forma personal ) siempre es bueno saber las palabras básicas de los idiomas más usados en el mundo. Holaaaaaa amigos de @stemitblog

This would be awesome to see some support for native American language translation options. Thank you! Hope you all have a great week/weekend.

Mark

It will be very useful and will support the growth of steemit.
Thank you

Great! I've sent an email to your given address about translation. I'm excited for the future of Steemit and Steem. This comment can be used as an confirmation of my email.

I can help with the Polish translations if you are planning to add it ;)

Great news

Really nice works.. It will help to grow this community bigger.. Non-English speakers people will be so much benefited.. I hope steemit will reach to new members more quickly!

What is Steemit plans for segregating content of a specific language? My suggestion would be to allow for showing content based a boolean tags filter like; #kr AND #bitcoin

thanks for translator they did hard work we appreciate them .. there will be urdu language ...??? wanna know

We can support any language for which we have translators. If urdu speakers who are also fluent in English email [email protected] we'd be happy to add them to our system and get steemit.com translated into urdu!

Community Liaison, Steemit

that service is free or steem sill provide something ...? i mean if i come into this project ..

As I said, I am (partly) available to improve the existing translation that requires some fine-tuning! :)

Great !

By the way, we still need to improve a bit the french language ;-)
Also, why are our names written severals times ? :D

Because you're twice as important! Just kidding, that's been fixed. Thanks for the heads up. To discuss specific matters relating to translations feel free to contact me on steemit.chat or e-mail [email protected]

@andrarchy, you know how to speak to me ;-)

I could help with Polish.

That's funny I am literally watching @sneak talk about this on Youtube right now :D

Wow, I’m so amazed by these wonderful development, kudos to these wonderful contributors and awesome translators:

@roxane (fr), @sweetsssj (chinese), @gargon (sp), @wartrapa (sp), @pgarcgo (sp), @stella87s (italian), @charlesx (italian), @thenightflier (italian), @lemouth (fr), @roxane (fr), @awesomianist (malaysian), @lemouth (fr), @bhuz (italian), @wartrapa (sp)

Thanks for sharing @steemitblog, please I’m interested, wishing to be part of the translators.

Thank you!

It would be cool if you could check in your preferences for different languages (e.g. English and German).
I just send a message to [email protected] for German.

I DIG IT!

Looking forward to see the portuguese language version. @andyluy @aleister @robertoueti @maxjoy @liliana.duarte @rmach

Absolutely

Just for lulz

What a great service. There are such great people here, actually getting things done. You folks could teach the people I work with a thing or two.

haha, thanks! And sorry to hear that?

Hi @andrarchy
Please help me get this very important feature included in upcoming fork!
It will enable many products and services that are currently not possible.
Securitization of Steem Power!
https://steemit.com/steemdev/@slavix/securitization-of-steem-power
Here is a github issue for it https://github.com/steemit/steem/issues/1749

I appreciate that you're trying to help improve the system but attempting to add features to an already planned HardFork is the wrong approach. If you would like to suggest changes to the blockchain you should start by lobbying the community and the witnesses, and with their support it can be considered for a future hardfork, but not one that is already planned. There is consensus around hardforks being carefully planned and very limited in scope with respect to features.

I am doing my best lobbying all who will listen and many said they support the idea, but it will take you guys at steemit inc to actually take it further and include it into the blockchain code. Hopefully this effort will not be ignored.

Thanks for letting us know!

Excellent. The language from the browser settings, as it should be.

This is amazing! I would love to help translate to Dutch. I sent you an email :).

Happy to help with the Dutch translation :)

I'm waiting for Polish language ;)

Don't wait! Make it happen! Send an email to [email protected] and offer to translate to polish. I'm doing it for Malay language too which would potentially open steemit to almost 400 million people in Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, and Brunei.

This is awesome, it gives everyone the benefit to relate well with the site.

More than a greeting. The expression of the people or a smile reflects the greeting (of course that is when the greeting is personal) it is always good to know the basic words of the most used languages ​​in the world. Holaaaaaa friends of @stemitblog

Hello Team
I am having a blog with name "Crafter"

Wow this is certainly great news! keep it up guys

Great news, great progress, great help and so exciting!

thank you for support

this is really great, and i would really like to be a part of it. My native language is Bengali, and i'm quite good in English. If there's an opportunity to work on the Bengali language - I'd be more than happy to help.

I made a pull request for the french translation 27 days ago and it never got any interaction from you (or from anyone else on github for that matter). I guess I should send you an email then ?..

I'm referring to this pull request by the way :
https://github.com/steemit/condenser/pull/1910

I will definitely look into that! Thanks for bringing this to my attention.

Community Liaison, Steemit

Well done Steemit! This will bring many more users to Steemit. Many people that don't know english give up on Steemit because of it. This will resolve it bit by bit..

  ·  2 years ago (edited)

I will call for some Portuguese at my LinkedIn audience.

DONE!

What about other international languages?? Like Arabic, Hindi, Urdu etc??

Wow

Fantastic. This will really help with Steemit adoption abroad. I'd be curious to see a list of the languages currently in development.

Anyone have a clue about this?

  ·  2 years ago (edited)

awesome responses here ;-) I'm happy @ecoboss for Polish

great posts and information, idd some dutch steemit would be verry cool, greetings

Здравей ! Hallo in Bulgarian

fantástico!

Português! =)

He that is funny, seems our communication failed somehow. I made the Esperanto translation, but than never you came back, not to mention the promised rewards. Please tell me what is going on here.

I'm sorry we have never planned on having an esperanto translation nor promised any rewards for helping with one. If someone has told you otherwise I would very much appreciate learning who it is.

  ·  2 years ago (edited)

Ho ve! Sorry for that. Probably I mixed up something. It was the busy team, I guess, a while ago.
By the way, why not to translate into Esperanto?

Anyone can help translate the site into whatever language they wish by e-mailing [email protected] with the language they would like to translate. Our system only requires translators and a willingness to translate. It can handle any language

I would be willing to help with an Esperanto translation as well. Just sent my email! Thanks for the heads up, @andrachy!

  ·  2 years ago (edited)

Thanks @andrachy for the good news. I can help with Esperanto.
https://steemit.com/esperanto/@johano/kiam-ni-ankora-vivis-en-kavernoj

i could help with spanish, if you need it

Fantastic! I can help you to support Turkish language.

A pleasure to work with you guys. Steem on!

I am fluent in Texan. I know a little Spanglish and can get by in redneck so send me anything that slips by interpretation yall!

Truly making steem and Steemit a worldwide community. This is HUGE! Great work everyone!

Great improvements , thanks to the dev team and translator’s

Well I am new around here but I see no Slovenian translation atm, so if you people need any help with my language please just contact me, I am ready to help in my spare time.

That's great! Please e-mail [email protected] with "slovenian" and I'm sure we can add you to our system. Thanks!

Done :) now is time for sleep here :) GN

Hello dear Steemit Translateteam. I would be happy if the Steemit network would be translated to German. The German community is growing strongly and would be happy if this would be implemented.

best regards
John B.

Cool need spanish, Great news

Wow, very nice, will german also be supported in the future?

@steemitblog Personally, I would like to bring the information about agriculture but now I feel stuck because I can not write my articles in English. no doubt a project like this on translation requires support, and on my part they will have it!
regards. STEEM ON !.


Thumbs up to those hard workers.

Good post! Visit our blog and see the latest news :D Greetings

Hey what is all this about?

I love the flexibility where it's auto detects language based on browser settings.
No need to push anybutton anywhere

Aloha

Ready to help from the heart. I'll translate into Sinhala
E-mail sent

Gracias!

Becoming a steemit translator is a great way to help grow your native language community. ...... @steemitgirl11

That's great news. Steemit should be accessible to all!

I posted this 6 days ago, I suppose I need to sync my GitHub with Utopian.io to make this auto-posted on GitHub, not really sure how it works:

SPANISH translation updated/reviewed: "Steemit (steemit.com)"
https://steemit.com/utopian-io/@nehomar/spanish-translation-updated-reviewed-steemit-steemit-com (Utopian.io version)

It is great to see that steemit grows and is getting better byproject like this. Keep it up. Great work.

brilliant move !!!

thanks for the awesome update.

My greetings to you and your great efforts deserve more appreciation
It is true that other languages must have a share in existence in the Stemite community
I salute the idea
Greetings to you @walidsalah

i like this project

Welcome in translations Team Steemit.

I already have done a lot of language–work on SteemWiki.org and wonder, what to do now. The first thing is to offer my translations to you, of course. As you like it, take all of them. There are a lot of translation–works on crowdin.com by testz as well.

Now Steemit occurs on stage, where all the actors are playing, following their own agendas.

May I take your translations for SteemWiki as well? In this case I will enter the team.

@steemitblog great idea! Resteemed! Thanks for it! Thanks @afrog for showing this treasure! Can’t wait till it works...;-) Steem on!

How about indonesian? I'll be happy to help translate it

Please e-mail [email protected] with the language you would like translate

Thank you @andrarchy , i have sent it
