Welcome to the Ubuntu Translation, Localization and Internationalization start page.

Here you should find links to useful resources, frequently asked questions, guidelines and a way to get in touch with people.

General information

The goal of the Ubuntu translation team is to make Ubuntu available in as many languages as possible at the highest quality. The most important packages are those from the main repository, prioritizing on the applications which the user is likely to see in the first few hours of usage.

We also coordinate with the following teams

  • DocumentationTeam - translating documentation

  • Website team - translating Ubuntu Start page and other web pages

Translation of Ubuntu is done through its web-based translation system: Launchpad Translations.

New translators

You don't need to join a team to translate Ubuntu into your language. Everyone can suggest translations.

Before you start translating please check the localization guidelines for your language (you should see a link on top of each translation page). If the localization team for your language has not defined a guide yet, please consult the general guidelines here:

Note: Launchpad Translations can be used for translating lots of different software. Ubuntu is just one part of that. If you wish to translate Ubuntu, choose the relevant release from the Ubuntu Launchpad Translations homepage.
