"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 translate
- Torbutton - aboutTBUpdate.dtd translate
- Torbutton - about:tor homepage translate
- Torbutton - brand.dtd translate
- Torbutton - brand.properties translate
- Tor button - browseronboardingproperties translate
- Tor button - securityLevel.properties translate
- Torbutton - torbutton.dtd translate
- Torbutton - torbutton.properties translate
- Tor Launcher - network-settings.dtd translate
- Tor Launcher - properties translate
- TBA - Tor Browser for Android translate
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: translate The website at https://bridges.torproject.org
- 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
- Release_tweets: translate let us spread the word about Tor in your language! small phrases to use on Twitter.
The Tor Project Web Portals project can accept translations from languages that Tor Browser cannot support (due to Mozilla ESR limitations listed above.)
Please respect the order of the translations, and try to keep the first translations always updated before starting a translation further down the list.
- Tor Support Portal (translate, preview, stats) FAQ with the basics about what Tor is and how to use it. Translations needed!
- Tor Browser User Manual - A great resource for users starting to understand about privacy. (translate, preview, stats) Translations needed!
- Tor Project Animation Subtitles for the video (translate)
- Tor Project Homepage (translate, preview)
- Note: The Tor Project staff bios are the lowest translation priority in this resource. You can filter them out and prioritize the rest of the website content by inputing "tags_not_contains:bio" in the Filters field in the Transifex translation editor.
- Tor Project Outreach Materials (tor-outreach2019-2020.md)
- Tor Project Donate Page (translate) our donation page.
