Back to Main Page. Thanks a lot for your interest in translating Open Food Facts (website interface, mobile applications) in new languages and/or improving the existing translations!

Translation workflow

  • We use 2 tools to add translations to Open Food Facts: this wiki and Launchpad. Launchpad requires a separate account (or an OpenId account) which takes 30 seconds to create.
  • Please join your local channel on Slack and the #translation channel so that we can coordinate.
  • You can log in on the wiki (first login on Open Food Facts and you can then login on the wiki automatically) and edit the wiki pages to add/correct translations.

Taxonomies ?

Taxonomies make Open Food Facts work like magic. They are our way to organize information and automatically make sense of products. This will enable :

  • Suggestions in your language, to make contribution faster
  • Autodetection of categories, enabling worldwide comparison between food.
  • Multilingual products automatically translated to your language (if the item in the taxonomy is translated to your language)
