Translate Tor

Tor Project

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
Tor button - securityLevel.properties
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
Release_tweets.md

Tails

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

This is an extension to use Thunderbird through the Tor network, and other privacy features.

TorBirdy - torbirdy.dtd
TorBirdy - torbirdy.properties

Miscellaneous Content

Exonerator is a website that lets anyone check if a particular IP address was Tor relay.

Exonerator.properties

Tor Project Web

The Tor Project Web Portals project can accept translations from languages that Tor Browser cannot support (due to Mozilla ESR limitations listed above.)

Tor Project Donate Page (translate) our donation page.
#Tor Support Portal (translate, preview, stats) Important resource for learning about Tor. A great resource to help on the adoption of Tor. Translations needed
Tor Browser User Manual (translate, preview, stats)
Tor Project Animation Subtitles (Tor Misc - Tor_animation.srt)
Tor Project Outreach Materials (tor-outreach2019-2020.md)
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.
