Thank you for your interest in contributing user interface translations to the AtoM project! Your contributions help to make AtoM a multilingual application with a global reach.

In an effort to make the process of translating the AtoM interface more efficient, Artefactual Systems has started using Transifex, a web application to support dynamic publication of localization content from multiple sources. This means that more than one translator can contribute translated strings, making the process faster and easier, and enabling Artefactual Systems to publish translations more often. As well, everything is web-based using Transifex, meaning you can access your translation work via any web browser, instead of having to handle XLIFF files directly, as was the case with early versions of ICA-AtoM translations.

This page will introduce you to the AtoM Transifex project, so that you can sign up and begin contributing translations. When we package the next public release, we will include all translations submitted via Transifex in the release - so the entire community will benefit from your contributions.


* Interested in contributing to our project documentation? We have a separate page for that! See:  Contribute documentation
