By now you’re all aware that we’ve been working on allowing you to display your comment section in different languages, and today we’d like to make that available to everyone! Thanks to a fantastic effort from 24 volunteers collaborating across 5 continents, we’re able to offer 12 new languages to you right off the bat, with more languages hopefully coming soon. Here are the new languages that we’re releasing, along with the awesome folks who contributed to each translation:
- Arabic (Egypt)
- Portuguese (Brazil)
- Spanish (Mexico)
- Spanish (Spain)
- Peter Olle – blog
To change the language used in the comments area on your site, just go into the fancy new Settings & Layout section of intensedebate.com and the pick the Layout option on the left. At the bottom of that page you can pick from the list of supported languages.
These are first runs of the translations, so please take a look and see what you think. If there are any words you think might make more sense as something different, then please drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org, letting us know what language you’re looking at and where the text you’re talking about appears. It might be easiest if you send us a screenshot showing exactly which bit of text you’re talking about.
Thanks for all of your patience, and another huge thank you to the wonderful volunteers who have made this possible.
If you don’t see your language and you’re interested in translating, please email us at the address above. We would love your help!
