What feature ideas do you have for Social Fixer?

Add language support

Hello,
I use this extension for a long time and I recommended it to my other friends as well, but there is one problem. My friends don't know English language. I am able to do translations into my language, I just wanted to offer my help with translating into the Czech language and I have a question, if you will add any kind of other languages support soon? Thanks, John

        On this, my understanding is that there are some tools available to crowdsource translation and localization of software, though I don't know very much about them.

        http://www.transifex.com/ is one of the big players. They're free for open-source, it's not clear to me what the pricing would be to crowdsource a project like Social Fixer. (The lowest pricing level is $20/month, but doesn't include "Team sharing" or "Translation Memory sharing"... those come at the $100/month level.)

        There's also Pootle (http://pootle.translatehouse.org/), which is an open-source service (built on top of Django) for managing translation projects. It's used by several Apache projects, including OpenOffice — their Pootle server lives at http://translate.apache.org/ and can be browsed publicly to get a feel for it.

        Finally, http://www.smartling.com/ is another commercial translation system I've heard of. ;-)

        Kleba, I hope you're kidding... However I'd really appreciate a language support in SFX. That way, you could enhance the number of users by far.On top of that, many people are willing to help translating SFX into their language of choice. My only worry is that the translated version of SFX might not always be up to date with the most recent versions by Matt. However, since there are many people willing to participate, the delay between a new and a translated version might not be as big. I do wonder, though, why this option hasn't been discussed before...
