One of Moodle's strengths is the number of translations it has. Each translation takes many hours of work, as there are over 16000 phrases to translate! Many of the languages have more than one contributor, sometimes working together and sometimes working serially.

The Translation Coordinator is Koen Roggemans ''translation AT moodle DOT org''.
Themes give Moodle sites colour and life. '''[[:en:Theme credits|Theme credits]]''' lists all the themes included in the core Moodle download, along with their authors.
