Last week we launched the new version of Floorplanner, but that’s only the start. At this moment we support 9 different languages and volunteers are working on 8 other languages. The goal is to have a full translated user interface for all languages our users speak.

If you want to contribute all you have to do is to send us an email with the following details: Your name, the language(s) you want to translate and optionally some details or background on why you would make a good translator. After we receive and approve your application, we’ll soon send you a mail with all the instructions, the rules and a link to the translation dashboard.

Active translators will ofcourse receive a free PLUS subscription.

Hi, my name is Aldo and I am impressed with how easy is to draw with your program. I am getting on it and in a single day I got “professional looking” plans. I was wondering if you people are interested in some help to translate from English to Spanish. I have been living in Canada for three years now but my mother tongue is Spanish. Please, let me know if you are interested.

to get it in Russian for me and for many other Russian speaking people :) Thanks!

Hi guys and gals. I have a question regarding translating from English to French: When I see terms like BASIC, PLUS, PRO, BUSINESS and ENTERPRISE regarding the different Floorplanner packages, do I leave those words as is, or do I translate them to French?


~M 2011-05-08 14:37

By the way, this translating thing is very addictive! LOL 2011-05-09 06:31

Hi ~M
