WordPress in Your Language

Did you know that WordPress comes in at least 36 languages?

WordPress in Greek

WordPress is available in most of the popular languages, but it is also in Basque, Serbian, Welsh, Hebrew, Icelandic, Korean, Indonesian, Catalan, and Turkish.

WordPress in Nepali

WordPress in RussianWordPress may be available in your language, and you can find help and installation information in the WordPress Codex on the page for WordPress in Your Language with general installation instructions at Installing WordPress in Your Language, though specific instructions are usually found on the first page.

WordPress in IcelandicWordPress in Your Language also features language specific help, upgrades, and plugins to expand your WordPress site in whatever language you are using. There are also a variety of WordPress Plugins available for Translation and Languages to help your WordPress site become bilingual or offer translation information.

WordPress in HebrewAre you fluent in English and another language and want to help translate WordPress into your language? There is a lot of effort going on to not only translate WordPress, the program, but also the WordPress Codex and to provide language specific WordPress Forums and other support resources. If you would like to get involved, review the article on Translating WordPress and join the WordPress Polyglots Mailing List for translation discussions and helpful advice.

Just because a language is listed already, doesn’t mean that language and its volunteers don’t need help. There is a lot of help you can provide in your language to other WordPress users in your language. WordPress needs volunteers in all languages to help.

    Hi Lorelle, you may help me in this issue – can a language translation of wordpress (.pot/.mo) have a different license then WordPress Itself? Our main translator, who maitain all changes in past years not made “his” language file available under special license (only nonprofit etc.). I think, that he is not allowed to do this, as the pot contain 50 % of original texts, which are protected under open-source license. But i havent found any information regarding this.

    @ Tomáš Kapler:

    You will have to check on the WordPress Codex for details on licensing of translations. Or on the translation mailing list for WordPress. I don’t know what the rules are on this. They will know. Thanks and let me know what you find out on this.

    @ adela:

    No lo entiendo. Si tiene un problema con un plugin para WordPress traducción, por favor vea el Plugin de autores en busca de ayuda. Estos tienden a usar las banderas para representar los idiomas. Los gráficos para las banderas vienen con los programas.

    Para obtener más ayuda específica, por favor vea el WordPress Soporte Foros.

    Hi Lorelle, nice to see picture saying ‘mero wordpress, …wordpress in Nepali’, here. I have been trying to find ‘.po’, and ‘.mo’ files to write my blog in Nepali. WordPress has listed Nepali language but It does not list .mo files to download . When I write a post using Nepali unicode, my blog displays ???????????????. I know ISO language code and country code which is ‘ne_NP’. Could you please help me if there is any other way of installing WordPress in Nepali, or any source where I can download the .mo file.
    Thanking you in anticipation.

    @ Santosh:

    This often means that WordPress has not been localized for that language. I did a search and can’t find any .mo or .po or .pot files for Nepali either.

    You can try in the WordPress Support Forums or maybe you can work with someone to become the first to create the localization language files for your language! Wish I could help more but the Support Forums are your best bet.
