Translate to ALL the language of the globe

Post by mmform » Fri Jun 05, 2020 3:08 am

Hi,

I might be interested in Joomla translated to ALL the languages of our planet.

How is the progress on this? And how many and which languages are left?

I am an OLD Joomla user.. back in 2006-2007. Really loved coming back now.... Since its a little bit more "buildy" than Wordpress.

Would the Joomla organization pay for this upgrade? Translating the system to ALL main languages of the planet?

Where can one apply to get this done? Translation team ++ ? Link?

<3 Obrigato..

That would be great. However, considering the number of languages in the world, over 7000, and the finances of a non-profit organisation, the project of that magnitude may be too ambitious at the present time.

According to the Joomla 3.x Translations page, which has all the information about the translations of Joomla, Joomla 3.x has been translated into 76 languages. The experts in this 3.x Languages sub forum can tell if more languages are being worked on by volunteer translators.

The following numbers of languages available through online web translation and API facilities give some idea about the progress of machine translation technology and the importance of translations.

Microsoft Bing Translator - 74

Yandex Translate - 97

Google Translate - 108

Baidu Translate - 199

Can we at least get to translated it to all the "public" or official countries by United Nations ++ ? And their main languages?

If it´s 7000 languages... that is great... I am only 41.

Can we get this translated into all the MAIN languages of all the official countries of the globe?

I found this one: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_o ... _territory

I see Google says its 195 official countries.

Though at least, if i.e. with Brunei where they speak Malay and English, its enough that we have English on that country.

How many languages are we missing in Joomla then?

I guess you volunteer to create all these language packs?
It's easy to create a en-BN lang pack for English (Brunei), but will you follow up?
