CKEditor Localization


In an effort to speed up the CKEditor localization process and make it easier and more intuitive for our translators to create and maintain different localizations we have decided to set up the CKEditor UI Translation Center on Transifex. Transifex is an online platform that allows projects to make use of community-based translations, providing suitable resource management tools as well as a user-friendly browser-based interface.

No matter if you are a first-time Transifex user or a seasoned translator, a fresh CKEditor fan or a long time user, feel free to join us, contribute to existing translations or create new ones in an effort to make it easier for people from around the world to use their favorite editor in their native language!

Please note that as of CKEditor 4 the core resource contains only a handful of common entries and plugin files are crucial for a complete localization experience.
