Thanks to the generosity of those very nice folks at Transifex, [1] we 
are now using their services for the translations of LearnOSM [2].

If you would like to help with the ongoing translations, please visit 
the Transifex website [1] and search for 'HOT-OSM', and you will find 
LearnOSM listed there. If you're new to the site you will have to apply 
for a login, then apply to become a HOT translator. I've only seen it 
from the 'managing a site' side of things, but it all seems very simple.

There is guidance for new translators within the site, and a link 'help 
pages' which leads to a guidance wiki on translating for LearnOSM [3]

You'll see there are several modules of LearnOSM uploaded and ready for 
translation - can you make sure the file 'essential_setup.txt' is fully 
translated first, as we need that one to add the correct labels and text 
to the homepage and links within the site. After that I suggest the 
beginner modules will be the most helpful, and statistically the most 
popular (followed by 'osm-data' then 'mobile-mapping'). There were over 
11,000 visitors to the site in July, so you can judge yourself how 
valuable your contribution could be.

We're reviewing the modules before adding them to Transifex for 
translation, so you may find a few are not there yet - give us time, 
please as we're trying to make sure that everything is up-to-date. I'm 
afraid that sometimes we have to update a module after it is translated, 
so you may find, on rare occasions, that the module you have already 
finished gets a further face lift and some of the sentences will need 
amending (just the alterations will need a further translation).

Our grateful thanks to those that have translated for LearnOSM in the 
past, and we hope to see more of your efforts pass through this much 
easier system and on into LearnOSM in the future.

Any feedback is always welcome.
