PRESS RELEASE: Liferay Available in Over 40 Languages

Open Source Community Rallies to Provide Translations for Users Worldwide

LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Liferay, provider of the world's leading enterprise-class open source portal, today announced that Liferay Portal is being translated into over 40 languages. In response to growing demand for its products, Liferay has integrated with Pootle, an open source web software that is enabling volunteers from Liferay's community to do translation and translation management.

"Our overall goal is to make Liferay more accessible and relevant to our worldwide user base," said James Falkner, Liferay's Community Manager. "We fully embrace the open source methodology of product development and invite eager participants to help improve our product. Now, it is easy for any liferay.com user to contribute—they simply log into translate.liferay.com, integrate with Pootle, and suggest translations for review by our team of translation leaders."

Translation leaders are part of an official Liferay Translation Team (http://bit.ly/ihzNcp) that is composed of Liferay's own staff and active community members. These efforts run parallel to other activity prompted by Liferay's accelerating popularity around the world, including:

  • Rapid growth of Liferay's business ecosystem of more than 100 channel partners worldwide.
  • Creation of an official network of Liferay-approved Liferay User Groups (LUGs) in various countries around the world.
  • Development of a Liferay Marketplace where developers around the world can submit apps, gadgets, and other add-ons for download.

"Our translation needs have ramped up significantly over the years," said Falkner. "We are very thankful for well-built open source projects like Pootle that are helping Liferay and its community with these efforts."

A full list of Liferay translations and details on how to participate is available on Pootle's website at http://translate.liferay.com/pootle and in the Liferay wiki (http://bit.ly/kfOOfy).
