Quist is an app originally in English and we are making efforts to translate our content into other world languages.
We started the Quistory Translation Project in 2014 with a call for volunteers. Because of the sheer number of thousands of words to be translated and our lack of funds for professional translators, we decided to start with a manageable goal: Letting users access their own history in their own language. If you look at a historical event in Quist now, you can read about something that happened in Mexico in Spanish, something that happened in the Netherlands in Dutch, and so on. We are able to do this for the following 13 languages:
- Mandarin Chinese
The International Chair of the Quistory Committee, Avery Yuan, is working to take this endeavor to the next level. We are now working on translations of all content for the above languages in addition to French and Turkish. We are only limited by our number of volunteer translators. If you speak Hindi, Swahili, Thai, Finnish, Swedish, Bengali, Punjabi, or any other language, please get in touch about translating our content into your language.
Thank you to our translators who have helped so far (they are listed in the app’s Credits)! If you are willing to help, please contact Avery at [email protected].
You can also jump right in by translating right now using these spreadsheets below. Just enter in the translation and it will automatically save. (There are a bunch of random symbols in with the text – These are a result of the export from the database and can be ignored.)
