LocalWiki Now Speaks Portuguese, German and Russian

    While LocalWiki’s roots are in the United States, we’ve seen increasing interest in starting projects all over the globe. One barrier, however, has been that our interface is entirely in English — at least it was until now.

    Thanks to the hard work of Pedro Lima and Nuno Maltez in Portugal, LocalWiki is now completely internationalized and can be easily translated into any language!


    Pedro and Nuno have started a beautiful LocalWiki project for the city of Porto, Portugal: por.to. So far, they’ve been using their LocalWiki to collect information about the remarkable architecture around the city.

    Right now we’ve got translations for Portuguese (thanks to por.to), German (thanks to some folks in Sissach, Switzerland), and Russian.


    We need lots more translations! If you’d like to help with translations, just email [email protected].
