Up until recently, all the tutorials on Tuts+ (there are nearly twenty thousand!) had one thing in common: they were all published in English. And that’s strange when you think about it, because our community is nothing if not global.
We often get requests for translations via social channels, email, and in tutorial comments, and we also know that community members are already translating our tutorials so they can share them with their fellow countrymen and women. In response, we’ve launched the Tuts+ Translation Project, to meet the demand and share the hard work of our generous community members.
Now it’s possible for volunteers to translate whichever written tutorials they please. We take the translations, give them the once-over, then publish them so that they’re accessible via the original posts.
