Zondle in ANY language you like - translating zondle yourself.

The zondle mission is to enable games to support learning anywhere in the world. Of course, this raises language challenges since it would be almost impossible to create a website that supports every language and every regional dialect by translating it ourselves. It would simply be an unsustainable model with a site such as zondle which changes so frequently.

So in a move that we believe to be one of the first we are opening up the translation of the zondle website to you, our users, enabling zondle to support any language and dialect exactly matching the needs of your learners.

You can translate as much or as little of the site as you need. So if you just want your learners to go to the home page and play your topics you just translate those pages.

Translation is easy. You just turn on “translation mode” and little icons appear next to each page element. Clicking on those icons brings up a translation box. You translate the element and click “save”. The translation will be submitted to us for moderation and, if appropriate, we will make it live within 24 hours. Simple!

If you wish, you can also apply to become an official zondle translator. When approved you will have access to translating the site in real time. The process is exactly the same, but if you are a zondle translator the changes you make will be immediately live on the site.

We’d just like to say a big thank you in advance for helping support learning around the world by translating zondle and making it accessible to learners everywhere.

The following video shows the process of translating the site to get you up and running.
