Thanks also to everyone of you who have


One of Moodle's strengths is the number of translations it has. Each translation takes many hours of work, as there are over 1000 phrases to translate (plus hundreds of help files!) Many of the languages have more than one contributor, sometimes working together and sometimes working serially.

Translation credits lists all these wonderful people.

The Translation Coordinator is Koen Roggemans translation AT moodle DOT org.
