Contributing to H5P translations
Each H5P contains it's own translation-files. If you need to translate an H5P to a language which is not supported, we would be happy to support you.
The current language files are found on github, where each H5P content type has it's own repository (e.g: https://github.com/h5p/h5p-drag-question). The language files are found in the language folder within each repository. By using pull requests, you may add new translation files. We also accept uploading new files in this forum.
When we get new translation-files from the community, we will create a new release of the H5P content type containing the new/updated translation, and publish it here on h5p.org.

Finnish language in Tour
I noticed that the tour does not display properly when using Finnish language in Moodle (see screenshot attached). How can i help with this? Gitub is not familiar to me so Is it possible to be given a table of sentences and a column to add Finnish translations for these?

I'm planning to add Chinese language for all h5p content type.
I really like your content design.
And hope that I can give some help, like translate, to introduce the wonderful tools to my friends, students...
So I'm planning to update/add Chinese language for all h5p content type, but I am afraid of that how long I need to wait after adding ?
OR if you can help me to merge the zh.json files if I finish them in these days. (ps. I've done a little in github, you can review them first.)

french translation of wordpress plugin
Thanks for this wonderful activity framework.
I have successfully installed and activated the WordPress plugin, and everything works right out of the box.
I just have one issue which is translation in French.
I have seen how to translate the activities editors, by translating the JSON files available in Github.
But I can't see how to translate the hub, where I can select the activity I want to use and download it if it is not yet available.
This screen is almost totally in English (see attached screen copy), which could be totally frustrating for some French people.
If the source code of the hub is here: https://github.com/h5p/h5p-hub-client
There is no "languages" folder in it.
Please tell me also how I can contribute to the translation of the hub.

Hi atriaforever, the
Hi atriaforever, the translation files for the Hub are (confusingly) in the h5p-editor:
Unfortunately it's not currently possible to translate the descriptions for each of the content types yet.

OK thanks, I will take a look next week and keep you informed.

french translation updated
I have completed french translation and will send it though this link:
As you mentioned, the descriptions for each of the content types are not available.
Hoping this will come soon, the hub is the first contact with H5P, so you need to make good impression at first glance!

Thanks a lot! We'll publish
Thanks a lot! We'll publish the translations as soon as we come around to it, and in some point in time, the Hub will be localizable as well.

Can we translate the names of the content types
Hi, I am wondering is it possible to translate the names of the content types? I am translating H5P on Github and cannot find the language file with content type names. I would like to translate "Timeline" to "Vremenska crta", "Interactive video" to "Interaktivni video" and so on...
Thank you in advance. :)
