Kiwix uses translatewiki.net to translate its user interface.

Kiwix user interface is translated in more than 100 languages. This page explains how to proceed to improve these translations by adding/updating string translations.

The translation of strings does not need any special computer skills. Everybody can help! Translators do this using translatewiki.net, a really powerful online translation platform.

In order to improve Kiwix user interface translation in your native language:

  1. go to main page to sign up,
  2. follow the wizard to do a dozen translations and wait a few hours for the authorization,
  3. translate the strings of Kiwix which still need to be translated.

Wiki
