This is my 27th contribution to Node.js. I’m currently translating this project into Spanish, along with an awesome group of translators and moderators from Utopian + Da Vinci, we are doing our best to do everything correctly. If you are interested in open-source projects, I encourage you to keep reading.

Node.js is a very extensive project, it may seem impossible to translate it completely, but the Spanish team is working really and we are slowly making progress. It’s currently at 48% on Crowdin, which is awesome considering the fact that Node.js contains 1,048,272 words.


Project Details

Node.js is an open-source, cross-platform JavaScript run-time environment that executes JavaScript code outside of a browser. It achieves low latency and high throughput by taking a “non-blocking” approach to serving requests. Basically, Node.js can open, create, read, write, close and delete files on a server, using JavaScript. It also includes tasks that will be executed on certain servers.


I know it can be a bit confusing at first, so let me explain it to you in simpler words:

Let’s say you want to build a software to keep record of your company’s earnings. A feature where viewing your monthly earnings is updated live can be very useful. In that way, if one of your sales employees is busy, another employee could still be seeing the updates live, without reloading the page.

This has been done before using another technologies. However, Node.js is way faster and better. So, yes it is the best option for developers who want to build real-time applications where both the server and the client can exchange data freely with no restrictions.

Contribution Specifications

Being such an important project, Node.js is being translated to several languages so it can reach many people around the world. As it for me, I am contributing to the Spanish language.

Translation Overview

During this contribution I continued working on inside the version 6.

In simple words, the DNS module provides a way of performing name resolutions, which is the linking of identifiers within the programming environment to the actual program components that they represent.

The functions inside this module can be split into two categories:


Inside this folder I translated the methods: dns.lookupService(address, port, callback), dns.resolve(hostname[, rrtype], callback), dns.resolve4(hostname[, options], callback), dns.resolve6(hostname[, options], callback), dns.resolveCname(hostname, callback), dns.resolveMx(hostname, callback), dns.resolveNaptr(hostname, callback), dns.resolveSoa(hostname, callback),_ and dns.resolveSrv(hostname, callback).

I’ll explain some of them:



Resolves a hostname (e.g. '') into an array of the record types, but only for canonical name records (CNAME records). addresses is an array of the canonical name records available for hostname (e.g., ['']).

A Canonical Name (CNAME) record is a type of DNS record that maps an alias name to a true or canonical domain name. For example, a CNAME record can map the web address to the actual web site for the domain



Uses the DNS protocol to resolve a IPv6 addresses for the hostname. The addresses argument passed to the callback function will contain an array of IPv6 addresses.

Time to live (TTL) is a value in an Internet Protocol (IP) that refers to the amount of time or “hops” that a packet is set to exist inside a network before being discarded by a router.


Inside this folder I also translated a section called “Error codes” that explains all the types of errors that each DNS query can return. These are some of them:

  • dns.NODATA: This error means that the DNS server returned answer with no data. My Spanish translation is:

El servidor DNS devolvió una respuesta sin datos.

  • dns.NOTIMP: When this error appears, it means that the DNS server does not implement requested operation. My Spanish translation is:

El servidor DNS no implementa la operación solicitada.

  • dns.LOADIPHLPAPI: It means that there was an error while loading iphlpapi.dll, which is a module containing the functions used by the Windows IP Helper API and it’s necessary for the computer to work properly. My Spanish translation is:

Error cargando iphlpapi.dll.

These were the sites I used as references: 1, 2, 3, 4


Other translation samples:


Performs a reverse DNS query that resolves an IPv4 or IPv6 address to an array of hostnames.


Realiza una consulta DNS inversa que resuelve una dirección IPv4 o IPv6 para un array de hostnames.


The addresses argument passed to the callback function will be an array of strings containing the reply records.


El argumento addresses pasado a la función callback será un array de strings que contendrá los registros de respuesta.

Some words and code values were left untranslated on purpose, otherwise, their true meaning would be lost in the translation.

I have worked as a translator for the project Da Vinci Polyglot and I am currently working as a language moderator for the Utopian + Da Vinci translation category.

And of course, I am part of the Spanish team!
