Translation of the W3C CSS Validator

The CSS Validation service is currently available in 13 languages. The translations are mainly contributed by volunteers.

Translate the CSS validator in a new language

If the CSS validator is not yet available in your native language and you would like to translate it:

  1. Download the translation kit. Unpack the kit: It includes a number of HTML documents, a file with all the strings used for the validator messages, and a text files with instructions.
  2. Get in touch with us before you start translating: someone may already be on the job. Someone from the W3C staff or validator development team will get back to you with details about how to translate the validator.
  3. Translate. Congratulations, you have made the CSS validator more accessible to a lot more Web developers and designers.

Help complete the translation of the validator in your language

You can help fill the blanks and complete the translation in your language!
