Translating the templates

Post 172 of 262

I got an e-mail asking if there were any translations of the website templates available, more specifically Japanese versions. Unfortunately, to my knowledge the templates have not been translated to Japanese or any other language. But even though the texts in the templates are mostly intended as placeholders, it may be a good idea to offer the templates in other languages than English. Throughout the years, there have also been numerous requests for right-to-left versions by people who intended to build websites in languages which use the rtl direction. I have converted a few templates for such requests but never published any rtl versions here.

What do you think about translations and rtl support? Share your views, I am all ears. If you would want to help me by translating the templates to your local language, please send me an e-mail and let me know.

I think that would be a great idea if work upon.Because there is a big issue about other languages.Many people who approach the internet are not well aware of English to read and understand the meaning,and many want to see their own language also.I think you should work on that if you could,that will be an appreciable approach.
