Help Nafundi translate ODK Collect into multiple languages

When we designed the Open Data Kit data collection platform, we wanted to make sure would work all over the world. For that reason, supporting multiple languages inside each tool has always been an important goal. With the community's help, we've made great progress. For example, ODK Collect has been localized into twenty languages!

We think the current localization process for ODK is a little cumbersome, so today, in partnership with the University of Washington, we are launching a new easy-to-use process to improve on and add to these seventeen translations.

If you speak English and another language (especially Swahili, Hindi, Portuguese, Hausa, or Indonesian) our users need your help. Please go to, and sign up to improve on, or add a translation.
