Proz.com has now been translated from English into eight languages including four big ones: Spanish, German, Russian and Portuguese. In addition, thanks to our ambitious colleagues working in Romanian, Hungarian, Latvian and Albanian, we also have it in those as well; very few of us understand them but we can at least try! It's great to know they are with us and trying to spread knowledge and awareness of their lesser known, but valuable languages.

But then I ask, where is Chinese? Where is Hindi? French? Italian? Arabic? Japanese? Of course the list goes on and on, and the languages mentioned are among the most important ones in the world, and there are many on this site who work in them.

I say if the Romanians, Hungarians, Latvians and Albanians can do it, then what's wrong with the rest?

Having been personally involved in the German localisation effort, may I add that only the most important parts of the site have been translated so far. A lot remains to be done ...

A team of Chinese members is currently working on the Chinese localisation of the site but I am not aware of a firmly set deadline/release date.

Major languages Oct 17, 2006

I know that from other major languages also Lithuanian is in the pipeline and should be finished soon

But if seriously, enthusiasm of those translators making up specific localization teams is the decisive factor there and ProZ helps these teams in every way possible (thanks Patric!).

I gather from the Italian forum that an Italian version is in preparation.
