Taco, our spokes-husky, embarked on a world tour. As a result, we are excited to announce that Trello will now be available in over 20 languages!
Instead of relying on our cartoon dog mascot to handle translations, over 520 Trello users volunteered their time to crowdsource the new languages. Over a period of 4 months, 47,000 words were translated in 16 new languages. Phew.
The result was a huge success! We are now rolling out Trello in the following languages:
Finnish, Norwegian, Swedish, Russian, Polish, Hungarian, Ukrainian, Czech, Dutch, Italian, Turkish, Thai, Japanese, Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, Vietnamese, as well as the 4 previously translated languages of Portuguese, French, Spanish, German, and oh yeah, English.
Here are some instructions on how to change your language settings in Trello.
Since real, live people did 100% of the translations, you might see an error or two. Hey, everyone makes mistakes. Please let us know if you see something that doesn’t look quite right by emailing us at translations@Trello.com.
As Taco was meeting people around the world, we became eager to get to know our new friends. So we asked thousands of Trello users around the world, “How do you work?”
Turns out, there are lots of similarities (and differences) amongst productive people around the world:
PS. The world tour hasn’t ended. Check out the translation roadmap periodically to see which languages are up next, and if you’re interested, get involved in the crowdsourcing!
Good or bad, we’d love to hear your thoughts. Find us on Twitter (@trello)!
