The KDE Translation Teams

Many KDE applications have been translated to more than 50 languages already and the number of both the translated applications and the supported languages is still growing. For information on how complete the translation of the current KDE user interface to the individual languages really is please see the respective statistics page. (Documentation translation is still in its first stages for many teams.) The languages distributed with the last official KDE version are listed on a separate page.

Almost all language teams are looking for additional translators. And, of course, there are still a lot of languages missing in KDE. So if you have some spare time and a good knowledge of English, please consider joining one of the teams and help translating KDE to your native language. Just write to the appropriate team coordinator in the list below. If there's no coordinator listed for your language, take a look at the Translation HOWTO for more information on how new languages are introduced to KDE and subscribe to the mailinglist for translators and documenters.

The team table below is sorted according to the official lists of ISO 639 language codes. (See http://lcweb.loc.g ov/standards/iso639-2/englangn.html). We are presently switching from the 2-letter codes to the 3-letter codes.) In addition to the basic team data like the coordinator(s), the mailing list, and the team's web site, the list now contains links to:

  • compressed archives of all GUI and documentation files that were already translated by the respective language team; these files are usually of the type ".po" (GNU gettext) and ".docbook" (XML)
  • text files that contain all message strings of the translated .po files -- these files are sometimes called "compendia" and are used for instance by specialized translation programs like KBabel (the recommended one for KDE translation).
  • the "highscore list" for each team: an overview which .po files were already translated but are in need of an overhaul.
  • the doc statistics: an overview of the current status if there are any doc translations available
