#Localisation rally for #MediaWiki and #Kiwix

The localisation rally is finished. The results particularly for Kiwix are great. Thanks to the addition of 2,672 messages Kiwix is now fully localised in 53 languages. This makes it much easier for people to use our content off-line.

When you read the announcement of the results, it is particularly smaller languages that have benefited with the exception of traditional Chinese. When you look at the statistics, there are more languages that could have benefited from the rally and/or from more localisations.

This time the benefit to translators is EUR 37.50. The benefit to the users of the 20 languages however is where this rally makes a real difference.
