I'd like to help improve an existing language pack. Where do I start?

Please contact the maintainer of the language pack and ask where you can help. See Translation credits for a list of translators. The top name of each language pack is the current language pack maintainer. If you don't receive a response within a reasonable time, please email translation@moodle.org.

Another option is to check whether your language has a community discussion course - see http://moodle.org/course/category.php?id=3 - and if so, post in a forum.

I'd like to help with translating Moodle 2.0. What do I do?

Please contact the maintainer of the language pack and ask where you can help. See Translation credits for a list of translators. Once you have agreed on an area of Moodle that you intend to translate, create an account on the Moodle languages portal and follow the instructions on the front page.

The month names and days are displayed in English. How can I translate them?

Names of days and months are pulled out of your operating system. The system is configured for Moodle in langconfig.php where you have the strings locale (for -nix type operating systems) and localewin (for Windows operating systems) that should point to the right locale on your server. Your server operating system should support the language (= locale should be installed) - see also Month-name translation problem for an alternative solution.
