Starting a new translation

Your language is not in the list?

If you’d like to create a new translation, file an issue with the following information:

  • Language code
  • List of maintainers (one or more): github nick and email

As a maintainer, you should know JavaScript well enough to translate and review pull requests of others.

We will:

  • Create a new repository for you at javascript-tutorial/{lang-code}
  • Add/invite all maintainers to the team translate-{lang-code} in the javascript-tutorial organization.
  • Create an special issue in the new repository to track your translation progress.

You’ll get an email invite to join (unless you’re a member already). Please accept this invite, so you can get admin access to your repository!

You’ll find more translation tips in Readme when the repository is created.

Happy translating!

Becoming a maintainer

Anyone can contribute to the translations. Maintainers are ones who have the power to review and merge pull requests.

Please file an issue, if:

  • You’re already a maintainer of a translation, and would like to add another one.
  • You’re interested in becoming a maintainer for a translation, and other maintainers agree to add you.
  • An existing translation is stalled, previous maintainers don’t respond, and you want to take it over.


When the translation is at least half-finished, please create an issue with a request to publish. Your name and contributions will show up at the About page.
