Translating Wikidot has been a hot topic in the last week or two and today we want to make a sort of sum up and thank you note about it.

We'd like to thank very, very much for all that contributed their time to translate lots of boring and often problematic English messages to their native language. We've seen a lot of hard decisions being made, a lot of work with rewriting the translation, while we were fixing translation mistakes in English messages and still, much, much of enthusiasm while improving Wikidot international communicativeness.

We already credited the users that made the most complete translations: German, French and Serbian. We really keep our fingers crossed for Finnish translation. To express how much we appreciate the work you've done, we decided to give away one-year Pro+ accounts (one-year prolongations for those who already have them) to:

Choose the desired language, refresh the page, and you're done! In case the translation is not what you expected (not complete, has mistakes), you can go back and select English, but we suggest that you should go to and improve the translation instead! Any translations you make there will be shown on your site soon afterwards.
