Could you help translate MoodleNet in your language?

We want MoodleNet to be useful for educators around the world, so of course we need it to exist in as many languages as possible!

That’s why, as well as launching in English, it’s very important for us to launch with the interface available in other languages, too. We want to encourage the communities, content, and discussions that will come to life on the platform to be representative of the wonderful diversity of this community.

If that sounds like something with which you’d like to help, please head over to this thread on the MoodleNet forum and provide:

  1. A list of languages you know, including your level in each: Native ; Fluent ; High writing profiency ; High reading proficiency; or Intermediate. (Please don’t forget to include your level in English).
  2. A few words about your experience (if any) with translation, and a link to some of your work (for example, if you’ve helped translate Moodle Core, include a link to your profile on AMOS)

We will then direct message you if we need any more details, and with information about how to get started when translation into your language(s) is ready to begin. We’re going to start with some of the most common languages among users of Moodle, including Spanish.)

If you’re selected to help translate the pilot version of MoodleNet before it launches, you’ll also be invited to join as one of the first pilot users to try out the platform for yourself.

We’re hiring a Backend Developer for the MoodleNet project!

Now that we’ve made some progress on defining what the first version of MoodleNet will look like and how the ActivityPub-based technical architecture will work (using the Elixir/Erlang stack on the back-end), we have a unique opportunity for a developer to build the federated back-end for MoodleNet.

This is a flexible position and can be based remotely, or out of the new Moodle office in Barcelona. View the job listing for details, and please pass this along to any developer you know who might be interested.
