This page contains changes which are not marked for translation.
Translatewiki.net is a translation community and a localisation platform for free and open source projects. It started out with localisation for MediaWiki. Later support was added for MediaWiki extensions, FreeCol and other free and open source projects. See the complete list of supported projects.
Translatewiki.net is an independent open source project. The translation functionality is provided by the MediaWiki extension Translate​. This wiki always contains experimental code, and may be broken occasionally. Please be patient, problems are usually dealt with quickly. Issues can be reported at the support page.

History
Translatewiki.net started during 2006 as a test wiki, developed by Niklas Laxström​, in collaboration with Gangleri, as an internationalisation tool for the localisation of the MediaWiki software. It started under the name Betawiki, which became translatewiki.net at the beginning of 2009, following the site being moved to virtual server hosting under its own domain name, on 9th November 2007. By October 2007 translatewiki.net was contributing to localisation in around 70 languages, which by June 2010 had grown to 329 languages. How the number of languages has grown is visible in the table of translation milestones passed for MediaWiki. By January 2010 an upgrade was needed to the server capacity, to cope with the increase in activity. Netcup has generously hosted translatewiki.net since November 2007.
Other free and open source projects have gradually been added to translatewiki.net, starting with FreeCol in August 2007. By June 2010, the number of projects supported had grown to 16, and in December 2019, this number has grown to 46.
Most contributors to translatewiki.net are volunteers. Developers, administrators and translators were recruited initially from MediaWiki projects, especially Wikimedia. Most of our contributors still arrive here via MediaWiki, but with more projects arriving all the time, MediaWiki is no longer the only source of contributors. By June 2010, the number of registered translators is 1,860. In June 2018, the number of registered translators is 19,000.
In collaboration with Stichting Open Progress and FUDforum, translatewiki.net has arranged several translation rallies with bounties for translators available, to improve the localisation of MediaWiki and FUDforum.
The aims of translatewiki.net are described on the Introduction​. Technological aids to translators are described on the Technology page. These aids are continually being expanded and improved in order to make the translation work as efficient as possible. Current site needs and development are described on Phabricator​.
