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

Please see Translation for details of how you can help.

I've found an error in a language pack. Who do I contact?

Please contact the language pack maintainer. See Translation credits for contact details.

Another option is to check whether your language has a community discussion course - see - and if so, post in a forum.

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.
