For helping to translate the HTML5 client, visit BigBlueButton v2.4 HTML5 client.

You'll see a list of languages ready for translation.

  1. Click the name of the language you wish to translate

    If you don't find your language, please request to have it added using the Transifex menu.

Note: We pull the latest translations before every release and include them in the packages distributed with the release.


Administrators can pull specific languages their Transifex account is associated with

In BigBlueButton 2.2, 2.3, 2.4, 2.5 the script used for pulling the locales is located in the bigbluebutton-html5 directory

You can trigger the download of the latest strings by running a command of the format ./ pt_BR de (passing the code for the languages you'd like to download)
