Introducing the Tor translation glossary

by Runa | April 30, 2012

The Tor translation glossary is a glossary used primarily when translating software and documentation for the Tor Project. This glossary contains technical, general, gui and Tor specific terms, as well as names. This glossary can also be used for a more consistent use of technical terms in the source language (English).

Translators can access this glossary from inside Transifex when working on a resource. To view the glossary for a specific language, do the following:

  • Go to our project page on Transifex
  • Choose the language
  • Choose the resource
  • In the box that pops up, click Translate Now

There is a link to the translation glossary right above the source strings and translations, along with a search box and a set of shortcuts. Please help translate the glossary to ensure that translations in your language are consistent across different resources.
