Every day new residents try to find a start in the world. They need You! They need your help to find places worth seeing, to learn how to get rid of the box they wear instead of hair, to not feel lost in the huge world that expects them, or they just need someone to explain them what Second Life is about.
  
*Thanks to our volunteer localizers, our viewer is now available in '''Simplified Chinese'''. Great translations work! {{Jira|CT-117}} Check out 1.22 viewer to see it. If you are a Chinese translator and would like to join our CT project, we'd love to hear from you. We will have translation, editing, localization, localization QA, testing and other tasks available for Chinese very soon.

Scripts, prims, sculpts, textures, shapes and skins... There is so much to play with, so many cool things you can build and so much that can go wrong. Wouldn´t it be cool if there was someone to ask for help? This is where you step in! You can help residents to develop their skills by providing localized Knowledge Base and Help articles.

What we do
   

The Community Translation Project is the primary way You can contribute to the translations which are used in the Second Life software, the wiki and the knowledge base. We need your enthusiasm to provide localized help and improve existing translations.
Community translators:

  • provide viewer translations and help localize new features.
  • track down and document localization bugs and help fixing them.
  • translate knowledge base and help articles.
  • help spreading important messages in their language.

We need You!
   

Do you remember your first days in Second Life?

Every day new residents try to find a start in the world. They need You! They need your help to find places worth seeing, to learn how to get rid of the box they wear instead of hair, to not feel lost in the huge world that expects them, or they just need someone to explain them what Second Life is about.

Have you ever tried to build something and got stuck?

Scripts, prims, sculpts, textures, shapes and skins... There is so much to play with, so many cool things you can build and so much that can go wrong. Wouldn´t it be cool if there was someone to ask for help? This is where you step in! You can help residents to develop their skills by providing localized Knowledge Base and Help articles.

Do you have a hard time reading english words?

Some people do. Many residents can´t access help resources because they don´t speak english. Your help can make a difference. By translating the wiki, the viewer, blog posts and more you can help those residents find the information needed.

Still not convinced?

Volunteering is fun and makes a difference in the world. You can make new friends and share your skills with others. It´s something different and you help develop skills. You develop your communication skills and can work in a team. Helping others builds your self-esteem and self-confidence. You will feel needed and appreciated.
