About the Translation Program
The Ethereum community aims to be global and inclusive, yet much of its content only caters to English speakers, leaving out the world's 6 billion non-English speakers. For ethereum.org to act as the portal into Ethereum for the worldwide community, we believe providing non-English speakers with Ethereum content in their native languages is essential.
The ethereum.org Translation Program aims to make Ethereum accessible to everyone by translating ethereum.org and other Ethereum content into as many languages as possible.

Public acknowledgements of our top translators using leaderboards and a list of all contributors to the Translation Program.
In the past, we have retroactively rewarded our most active contributors with tickets to Ethereum conferences like Devcon(opens in a new tab) and Devconnect(opens in a new tab), as well as exclusive ethereum.org merch.
We're constantly thinking of new and innovative ways to reward our contributors, so stay tuned!

Our community of contributors is actively translating multiple high-impact websites and resources for the global Ethereum community.
Ethereum.org is a key educational resource for the Ethereum community and is the primary focus of the Translation Program. Given the size, scope, and reach of the website, it's the most impactful site to translate and we recommend starting here!

Starting your own translation program
We are dedicated to translating Ethereum content into as many languages as possible and making educational content available to everyone. In line with our focus on translations, we want to help other Ethereum projects organize, manage, and improve their own translation efforts.
For this reason, we have created a Translation Program playbook that contains some tips and best practices we have picked up in the process of translating ethereum.org.
Want to collaborate further or use some of our translation resources? Have any feedback on the playbook? We would love to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org(opens in a new tab).
