Need help sorting out how to use 23? Or have you discovered one of those nasty bugs?

Who wants to be a 23 translator?

Steffen Fagerström Christensen Team 23   February 16, 2006, 06:28 PM

One of our favorite features at 23 is our multi-lingual support; that is the site has been created so it's very easy to integrate more languages. And, while our focus has been on adding more features rather than adding more languages, users have been offering to help translating. After much discussion, we've agreed to give them the chance...

So, for everyone who wants to lend us a hand in this effort, reply to this thread and let us know which language(s) you can help translating to. Then we'll mail you the instructions on how to start translating very shortly!

Thanks for your continued support :-)

I can help translate into Vietnamese

Diego Caro   February 17, 2006, 05:01 AM

Hello, i can translate to Spanish :).

Steffen Fagerström Christensen Team 23   February 17, 2006, 12:37 PM

I've just mailed the instructions for saigonian, but we're in the lucky situation of not needing Spanish translators at the moment. Thanks for offering though - i'll keep you in mind if a position opens for the spanish translation team...

I'd be more that Happy to do the Arabic Version for you guys.

There are still a lot of strings in the german translation, that are not translated, so i'd like to help finishing the german translation.

Thomas Madsen-Mygdal Team 23   March 02, 2006, 09:53 PM


thanks for the offer - we'll get you set up.

lsholguin   March 15, 2006, 06:27 PM

I can help translating to Spanish. What is the next step?

Jim   March 19, 2006, 07:53 PM

I can help with Chinese.

Also Japanese if you can't get anyone to do that :p

TheRatRace   March 20, 2006, 08:45 AM

I could lend a hand on Italian translation.

TheRatRace   March 20, 2006, 08:46 AM

And probably French too.

ded   September 29, 2006, 10:43 AM

I can help with translation to Czech, if you are still interested...

Steffen Fagerström Christensen Team 23   September 29, 2006, 10:55 AM

Absolutely. We're allways interested in new translators. I've set you up as a translator and sent you the details via email.

Thank you so much...

Met   October 19, 2006, 08:36 PM

Send me details too :) I can translate to catalan, and would gladly do that

Steffen Fagerström Christensen Team 23   October 21, 2006, 04:56 PM

Thanks Met -- I've just sent you the relevant information via email. I'm fairly certain thaat you can help us become the only photo sharing service available in Spanish, Portuguese, Catalan and Galician ;-)

acolla   December 17, 2006, 08:26 PM

Hi there! I'd be willing to help in translating 23 to Brazilian Portuguese. E-mail me at andersoncolla13 AT yahoo -dot- com -dot br

Konstantin Rabinovich   January 05, 2007, 03:05 AM

I can translate to Russian.

Bruno Miguel   January 24, 2008, 07:46 PM

I can help in the portuguese translation

llllllllll   January 28, 2008, 11:10 AM

i could translate to german..

makeijan   January 31, 2008, 07:58 PM

I guess I could translate it to Galician...

Steffen Fagerström Christensen Team 23   January 31, 2008, 08:00 PM

Hi guys,

I'll have Maria set up translator accounts for both of you tomorrow. Thank you so much for helping out.
(And I really love the devotion that is being paid to Galician by the local 23 users ;-)...)

makeijan   February 01, 2008, 10:16 AM

You're welcome ;-)

teillu   February 07, 2008, 03:50 PM

I'll be glad to collaborate helping to migrate 23 into Spanish and/or Catalan!

Maria Lyskjær Jørgensen   February 10, 2008, 09:26 PM

that's great - thanks teillu. Spanish is our biggest wish at the moment :-)
I'll get you set up and send you an email with some info.

Bjørn   August 10, 2008, 01:48 AM

Norske "siden" viser engelsk tekst. Som en førstehjelp kan man kanskje sette inn den danske teksten der i stedet for den engelske teksten.

Kan hjelpe til med å fornorske den danske teksten hvis det er av interesse.

Steffen Fagerström Christensen Team 23   August 10, 2008, 03:35 PM


I'm guessing that people would be even more confused about Danish than about English. I'd love to work with you on a Norwegian translation if you were willing to help out. And obviously you could start by using the Danish translation?

Bjørn   August 10, 2008, 07:49 PM

It`s very easy for a norwegian to understand Danish texts.

I can help you with a translation to norwegian (bokmål). Just send me the details.


papapep   March 06, 2009, 04:45 PM


Although at least two persons mentioned (a while ago) they where going to translate the site to catalan, I can't see that option in the language selection tool.
Does anybody know if they are still on it?

If nobody is working on it, I'd like to do the translation.

Steffen Fagerström Christensen Team 23   March 06, 2009, 10:01 PM

Yeah the guys doing Catalan translation got to around 40%, but after this I don't know what happened. I've send you some information about translating...

yousaidforever   July 13, 2009, 10:24 AM

about the translation thing.. there's a mistake in the german translation. it's if you're in a group and you get e-mails when there are new conversations.

Du erhälst momentan E-Mail-Benachrichtigungen über neue Unterhaltungen in dieser Gruppe. Falls Du keine Benachrichtigungen mehr erhalten möchtest, kannst Du sie hier abbstellen.

correct is abstellen, just with one b. ;)

/ edit:
okay, or it's abbestellen, but then there's missing an e. thanks to the person who sent me an e-mail.

Romain Pouzol   July 15, 2009, 08:03 PM

I can work on the French translation!

stegue   July 23, 2009, 03:19 PM

If there is any interest in german translation, let me know.

The issue achterbahnfahrt mentioned: newsletter abstellen? Lieber abbestellen.

Maybe we'll need a thread for every language to discuss if translation is fine...

IkoTikashi   July 23, 2009, 03:29 PM

"abbstellen" has been changed to "abbestellen"
