If you took a map of the world and threw a dart at it, you would likely hit an area with an Evernote community. We’re thrilled to see just how widespread Evernote use has become over the past year, and we know that we’re only scratching the surface.
Starting today, we embark on an ambitious plan to make Evernote accessible to more people in more places. Say bonjour to the Evernote Translation Program.
Evernote is currently available in two languages: English and Russian. By year’s end, we plan on having Evernote versions in French, German, Italian, and Spanish. For a company of our size this is a tremendous task, so we need your help.
How you can help
It’s easy. We have deployed a simple web-based tool that allows you to translate as much, or as little, of Evernote as you like. Want to translate a single line of text? Great. Want to translate the entire Evernote for Mac client? Go for it. The tool will let you do all of this, and also edit existing translations. There’s no commitment and no minimum. We appreciate any help that you provide.
Why did we choose community translation?
Our goal is to make Evernote accessible to as many people as possible. We chose the four languages above as a start (and a test). If this process proves successful, more languages will follow. Ultimately, using this translation method allows us to focus our very limited resources on the most important task of all: making Evernote better.
We’ll do our part
Community translation is just one step in the process of launching Evernote in different countries. While you help us translate, our researchers and engineers will be busy making our image recognition and other technologies ready for their international debut.
