With bbPress 0.73 out, bbPress is much better equipped to handle localization to whatever language you speak.
We’d like to encourage such localization by offering a centralized resource for localization files, support and anything else needed by the international community.
Please leave a comment here to let us know what language you speak (and fill in your email!) if you’d like to get involved. (We have some pretty heavy moderation in effect; don’t worry if your comment doesn’t appear right away.)
And apologies ahead of time; I only speak English. Italian used to be a second language of mine, but that was tanti anni fa.
hello i am speakting Danish, I am willing to help you translate bbpres into Danish
Here I am 🙂 I manage the WordPress Italy website and we use bbPress for support forum, now we are going to redesign the site i’l put last version at work and obviously I already have the localization files ready for Italian.
I already care for the official italian localization for WP and i will keep the localization for BB too.
Would be nice to have a polyglots SVN as we have for WP, this way I’m sure lot of WP localization team will join the bbPress one too, maybe posting this request on polyglots mailing list would be a good idea.
Sign me for it_IT (italian) mantainer.
Soon we will start to offer a dstro fully localized and will have a specifica domain as we have for WP (bbPress.it is already registered by me)
I would like to do the german part.
Great job, thank you! I’m building a site using WP and bbPress (just installed and integrated bbPress 0.72 with WP 5 days ago). I actually did a quick localization if Finnish too, but since I’m using WP and bbPress integrated, didn’t come up with anything else but integrating also the .mo-file under wp-includes/languages. Could the localization be done with two separate .mo-files if WP and bbPress are fully integrated? That would be more elegant and accurate solution in my opinion.
I need to keep my site localized in Finnish anyway, so I can share the results of my work with the community, if it’s any help for you. Just let me know what to do.

Thanks in advance,

I want to use BBPRESS as Forum for projects.
I am very interesting for quick and good localization for Ukrainian language.
Please contact if its needed.
I d happily work on the Hungarian version of the BBpress, since I d like to try/use it on a Hungarian site. I did some translation jobs before (Englis-Hungarian), mostly movies and TVshows. Though I am not sure how you do a translation of a software like this… my coding/HTML/CSS knowledge is very limited. If there was a table (on one row the English text – another row to fill with the Hungarian version) I think I d do the translation quite quickly. Please contact me through my mail address if it is possible.
All the best,
Kto potrafi zrobić polskie tłumaczenie?
