"Tor is free software and an open network that helps you defend against traffic analysis, a form of network surveillance that threatens personal freedom and privacy, confidential business activities and relationships, and state security."
The Tor Project project in Transifex contains the resources necessary to localize Tor Browser, Tor for Android and several other Tor-related services like Tails and HTTPS Everywhere.
To release a localized version of Tor Browser, Mozilla's Firefox Extended Support Release must first be available. You can contribute to Mozilla Firefox translations through Mozilla's localization platform Pontoon.
Tor Browser Essentials
These resources are required for a Tor Browser "minimum viable product" release and should be translated first:
- Torbutton - aboutDialog.dtd
- Torbutton - aboutTBUpdate.dtd
- Torbutton - about:tor homepage
- Torbutton - brand.dtd
- Torbutton - brand.properties
- Tor button - browseronboardingproperties
- Torbutton - torbutton.dtd
- Torbutton - torbutton.properties
- Tor Launcher - network-settings.dtd
- Tor Launcher - progress
Tor Browser Supplemental
These resources are not absolutely required for a Tor Browser release, but they are highly valuable for maximum Tor Browser usability and publicity:
- BridgeDB - bridgedb.pot
- HTTPS Everywhere - ssl-observatory.dtd
- HTTPS Everywhere - https-everywhere.properties
- Tor Misc - animation-titles.pot
- Tor Misc - tor-and-https.pot
- Tor Misc - ExoneraTor.properties
- TorCheck - TorCheck.pot
This operating system includes Tor Browser and other privacy-preserving features and apps:
- Tails - liveusb-creator.pot
- Tails - mat-gui.pot
- Tails Misc - tails.pot
- Tails - onioncircuits.pot
- Tails - openpgp-applet.pot
- Tails - tails-greeter-2.pot
- Tails - tails-iuk.pot
- Tails - tails-perl5lib.pot
- Tails - tails-persistence-setup.pot
- Tails - whisperback.pot
- TorBirdy - torbirdy.dtd
- TorBirdy - torbirdy.properties
Exonerator is a website that lets anyone check if a particular IP address was Tor relay.
The Tor Project Support & Community Portal project can accept translations from languages that Tor Browser cannot support (due to Mozilla ESR limitations listed above.)
- support-portal-contents.pot (see #Tor Support Portal below)
- Tor Misc - Tor_animation.srt
Translation & Review Priorities: Arabic, Chinese (Simp.), Korean, Persian, Russian
- Want to see translations in context before they are released? The Staging site has unreleased and updated translations available for testing.
Voice & Tone:
- When addressing the user, use the 2nd person informal pronoun "tú".
- New Tor locales Auto-updated page with newly translated locales.
