Kickstarter Is Now Available in Chinese and Italian

Share this post

Today we are excited to announce that Kickstarter is available in two new languages: Traditional Chinese and Italian. We’d like to extend a warm welcome to Chinese and Italian speakers around the world, and especially to backers and creators who can now use Kickstarter in their native language.

Over 16 million people from across the globe have backed a project on Kickstarter. Our backers come from nearly every country, and currently, creators from 22 countries can launch one. We are a global company, and we want our product to reflect that.

We are constantly striving to make Kickstarter more inclusive through language localization. In 2015, we translated our site into French, German, and Spanish when we opened up to creators in France, Germany, and Spain. When we came to Japan in September 2017, we translated the site into Japanese.

For now, Chinese and Italian will be available as beta languages, so community support, our Help Center, and our app will not be available in these languages. We recommend that creators who launch projects in Chinese or Italian also include a translation into one of the five languages for which we offer support: English, French, German, Spanish, and Japanese. You can read more about best practices for translating your project page here.

To change your language preferences on Kickstarter, scroll down to the bottom of any page and select the language of your choice from the menu on the right-hand side. (Our site is available in Emoji, too! 😃)

Kickstarter 現已推出繁體中文與義大利語介面

Kickstarter 今天很高興地推出兩種全新語言介面:繁體中文和義大利語。我們熱烈歡迎世界各地的中文和義大利語使用者加入,使用自己的母語在 Kickstarter 上發起和支持專案。

在 Kickstarter 上,超過 1600 萬人曾支持過自己喜愛的專案。我們的支持者遍及全球每個角落。目前,來自 22 個國家的創作者可以發起專案。我們是一家全球性的公司,我們希望我們的產品也能夠反映出這一點。

我們一直在努力透過當地語系化使 Kickstarter 更具包容性。2015 年,當我們向法國德國西班牙的創作者開放時,我們將網站翻譯成了法語、德語和西班牙語。當我們在 2017 年 9 月來到日本時,我們同樣將網站翻譯為日語。

目前,繁體中文和義大利語僅作為測試語言提供。因此,社群支援、說明中心和我們的應用程式暫時無法提供這兩種語言的服務。我們建議以繁體中文或義大利語發起專案的創作者將其母語內容翻譯為我們已經完全支援的五種語言之一,即:英語、法語、德語、西班牙語或日語。你可以在此這裡閱讀有關翻譯專案頁面的更多資訊。

要在 Kickstarter 上更改語言偏好設定,請在任意頁面向下滾動底部,然後從右側的下拉式功能表中選擇所需的語言。(我們的網站同時支援 emoji 語言!😃)

Kickstarter ora è disponibile in italiano e in cinese

Oggi siamo lieti di annunciare che Kickstarter è disponibile in due nuove lingue: italiano e cinese (caratteri tradizionali). Desideriamo dare un caloroso benvenuto agli utenti di tutto il mondo che parlano queste due lingue, in particolare ai sostenitori e ai creatori che ora possono utilizzare Kickstarter nella loro lingua. Oltre 16 milioni di persone da tutto il mondo hanno sostenuto i progetti su Kickstarter. I nostri sostenitori provengono da quasi tutti i Paesi e attualmente i creatori di ben 22 Paesi possono pubblicare un progetto. Siamo un'azienda globale e desideriamo che il nostro prodotto rifletta questa prerogativa.

Cerchiamo costantemente di rendere Kickstarter un sito più inclusivo attraverso la sua localizzazione nelle varie lingue. Nel 2015 abbiamo tradotto il nostro sito in francese, tedesco e spagnolo e abbiamo aperto la nostra piattaforma ai creatori in Francia, Germania e Spagna. Quando siamo arrivati in Giappone, a settembre del 2017, abbiamo tradotto il sito in giapponese.

Per ora, l’italiano e il cinese saranno disponibili come lingue in beta test, quindi il supporto della community, il nostro Centro assistenza e la nostra app non saranno disponibili in queste lingue. Consigliamo ai creatori che lanciano progetti in italiano o in cinese di includere anche una traduzione in una delle cinque lingue che supportiamo: inglese, francese, tedesco, spagnolo e giapponese. Puoi leggere maggiori informazioni sulle migliori pratiche per la traduzione della pagina del tuo progetto qui.

Per cambiare le tue preferenze di lingua su Kickstarter, scorri fino alla fine di qualsiasi pagina e seleziona la lingua che preferisci dal menu sul lato destro. (Il nostro sito è disponibile anche in Emoji! 😃)
