Mattermost localization: 700,000 translations, hundreds of contributors

Mattermost shipped with Spanish in version 2.0 on February 16, 2016. The effort was largely completed by our first translations contributor, Elias Nahum.

The very next month, Mattermost shipped with Brazilian Portuguese, soon followed by French, Japanese, and more.

Today, Mattermost ships in 16 languages, and 26 other languages are in progress.

In total, hundreds of contributors have translated more than 700,000 words.

700,000 words. Wow!

I am amazed by what our localization community has achieved.

Moreover, many of the languages have reached 100% completion release after release, every single month since 2016, and several of the community members have been nominated as a Mattermost MVP for the outstanding work they’ve done across the Mattermost community.

Mattermost would not have the global reach it does today without the hundreds of contributors who have created an experience for millions of users across the world in their native languages.

We cannot express a greater appreciation to our community for this excellent work. A huge thank you to everyone for making a lasting impact to the history of Mattermost!

Below is a list of the contributors in the localization community as of April 11, 2020 (all usernames refer to the one used in the Mattermost Translation Server). 

If you’d like to contribute and help the community reach 1,000,000 translated words, join the community at our Localization Discussion Channel and the Mattermost Translation Server!
