Hello there,

As you may not know we are always looking for translators and reviewers to help with the translation of MFC. At the moment, MFC is available in 13 languages and the following languages need to be updated: Chinese (approved; small updates required), Korean and Russian (not approved; large updates required).

But other missing languages are welcome to. Feel free to suggest!


If you care to help, you should:
  • Be a native speaker of the language you want to translate in;
  • Be fluent in English;
  • Know MFC very well;
    To translate you need to know where and when words and sentences are used.
  • Be ready to update your translation once in a while;
    New words and sentences are added while the website evolves.
  • Find a reviewer to correct and approve your work.

As a reference, if you start your translation from scratch, about 700 words and sentences need to be translated.

To apply, send me a PM. Thank you!

Let's send our thanks to our current translator team.

Lishtenbird (Il y a 4 ans) #1586478ponnie, as one of those Russian users living here at English MFC, I ask you not to arouse hostility towards Russian users (as you've already done before). Kids and ignorant users exist everywhere, not only in your country, and raising this issue once again will not do any good.
I'm not 'arousing hostility', I just don't want any invasions. When in Rome do as the Romans do - but our people tend to bring their samovar everywhere where there is another native speaker around. I mean, these people handle international pre-orders somehow without knowing English - what's wrong with browsing English website?
Anyways, we're going off topic. If you have any problems with me not approving our local fandom - feel free to PM me. I still have my right of opinion.

As I said, I can offer quality help with translations but I don't feel it's necessary.

kisaragi (Il y a 4 ans) #1586447What's wrong with Russian users or this site translated in Russian? You can use English version if you wish. I know some people who would love to join this site but they can't since their English is poor.
MFC is easily browseable even with basic English.
The best thing about MFC to me is that people learn to communicate using one language which unites collectors all over the world. I might sound mean but Russian marginalization is the last thing I want to see here.

Do you really need a Russian version of MFC?

h-mania (Il y a 4 ans) #1586274Same goes for Dutch. I get the option, but the Dutch is very poorly translated.
If you need help with that, you can ask me :)


As mentioned in above post, if seriously interested, please drop kumasanmk a PM

Plume (Il y a 4 ans) #1586328I would happily take up the task of translating into Romanian. But until there's more than 2-3 members from my country on here, it would be kind of a waste of time and effort to translate the whole site into a language that very few members speak, wouldn't it?

Here also, if seriously interested, please drop kumasanmk a PM as well.

Apart from the few taking the mick with the votes, (please cut it out now) it would be of great assistance if we can get help with some of the more rarely used languages. The translation tool is quite easy to use, but you have to know the MFC layout fairly well, in order to apply the translation correctly as sometimes only single words require translating, such as the dropdown menu buttons for example. It sounds a lot of work and it initially is (if a language is not present at all), but it usually requires only a few words of updating, once it is all in place.
