MediaWiki is used for example to run Wikipedia in many languages, and therefore translating MediaWiki directly helps people to access free knowledge in their own language. More about the terms at Gettext documentation and Wikipedia. Auf erstellen und kontinuierlich verbessern wir eine Infrastruktur für eine einfache Lokalisierung von Open-Source-Projekten und frei geschriebender Dokumenten. Wir bemühen uns unsere zwei Ziele zu erreichen.

Our first aim is efficiency. To increase efficiency of the process, we integrate tightly into the development process of the software to have small turn-around times. In addition, we develop tools to automate integration of translations. This relieves the individual translators to only concentrate in producing the best translations possible.

Our second aim is collaboration. The whole system is built on a wiki. MediaWiki is popular wiki engine that provides framework for building collaborative communities. We encourage translators to help each other across project and language boundaries in multiple ways, and act as a glue between developers and translators.

You do not need to know how to program. If you are familiar with a wiki software, you will learn quickly how to use The only requirements are good command of languages, web browser and open mind.

Das führende Projekt von - MediaWiki - wird aktuell in mehr als 250 Sprachen verwendet. Auf werden jeden Monat mehr als 100 Sprachen aktualisiert.
