Localizing Zabbix UI and Documentation

If you want to make Zabbix UI or documentation available in your language or improve existing translations, join the vibrant community of Zabbix translators. Zabbix UI translations and documentation in languages other than English are maintained by the community, and you can contribute to making it better.

Language teams

In January 2022, we introduced the new translation portal translate.zabbix.com for managing Zabbix translations. You may contribute to translating any of the existing languages or be the first and create a new team for your language.

Because of moving to a new platform, there is a lot of translation work that needs to be done. If you can find some spare time to contribute, the community members will give you a warm welcome.

Why localize documentation?

Zabbix is an open source software, and a lot of our users rely on the documentation to set up monitoring for their infrastructure correctly. Adding or improving translation to your native language will make Zabbix available to large groups of people who do not speak English well enough.

How to start?

  1. Fill out the registration form to request access to translate.zabbix.com.
  2. Receive a welcome email from Zabbix team with detailed instructions. Even if you have never translated anything before, it will be easy to get started.
  3. Log in to translate.zabbix.com and start contributing.

Community Translator Reward Program

We are thrilled to announce that our fast growing Zabbix Translator Community has already reached 100 dedicated members. Owing to your contribution Zabbix is becoming more and more accessible to the users around the globe. In appreciation of our translators' work, we regularly send gifts to our translators. When you translate the content for the “Documentation 6.0” project, you automatically join our Community Translator Reward program. The levels are based on the number of strings you have translated for the project. Once you have reached a new level, you will receive the following gifts:

Reward Scheme

Level Number of Strings Category Reward
1st 250 Junior Translator a small souvenir from Zabbix
2nd 500 Mid-level Translator a branded H2O bottle
3rd 1000 Senior Translator a Zabbix backpack and the official Zabbix Translator certificate
4th 2000 Translation Leader a free spot at the online Zabbix Certified Specialist 6.0 training
