There are several opportunities for translators to get involved with Creative Commons projects. Creative Commons uses Pootle to manage translations for the web site and our open source software projects. You can find information on using Pootle for translations here; information on translating using gettext and poEdit is also available.

The license engine, deeds and legal code hosted at are all translated directly by CC jurisdiction partner institutions. While there are usually people at the partner institutions who handle these translations, you can suggest translations for them using our Pootle server.

For CC Project Leads
To set up translations for your jurisdiction's language(s), please:
1) Select one or more people to manage your translations
2) Each translator should create an account as described below
3) Email the translator usernames to CC CTO Nathan Yergler

For Translators
1) Go to and create an account
2) After confirming your email address, log in to your account
3) Click the "My account" link in the upper right, and then click "Change options"
4) In the "My Languages" list, select all languages which you will be translating for and click "Save Changes"

If you have not yet been approved to make translations in your language, and would like to contribute, please contact us, and we'll put you in touch with the appropriate administrators.

We'd like every page on this wiki to be translated into as many languages as possible. See CcWiki:Translate for details.
