(List updated 11:39, 20 November 2008 (CST))
 
 
 
==Translators==
 
 
 
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''.
 
 
 
==Themes==
 
 
 
Themes give Moodle sites colour and life. '''[[Theme credits]]''' lists all the themes included in the core Moodle download, along with their authors.
 
 
 
==Supporting Organisations==
 
 
 
* '''Open University, UK''' - contributed to Roles, accessibility in 1.8, Quiz (ongoing) and many smaller things.
 
* '''Istituto Superiore di Sanità (ISS), Italy (especially Daniele Cordella)''' - contributed to accessibility compliance to W3C guidelines and Italian law.
 
* '''Microsoft, US''' - contributed to development of [[Development:XMLDB Documentation|XMLDB]].
 
* '''Google, US (Summer of Code)''' - contributed to development of Admin interface, AJAX editing and Database activity presets
 
* '''Open Polytechnic, NZ (esp Richard Wyles)''' - for contributions to Moodle Network, Stats, PostgreSQL support, and many other things
 
 
 
(this list is not complete yet)
 
 
 
==Other contributors and developers==
 
 
 
Many other people have contributed (and are still contributing) with constructive discussions, support, testing and various chunks of code and documentation - see the '''[[Community credits]]''' and the '''[[Documentation credits]]'''.
 
 
 
Thanks also to everyone of you who have
 
* Donated via the [http://moodle.org/donations Donations page]
 
* Reported, commented on, voted for and/or fixed issues in the [http://tracker.moodle.org Tracker]
