"Goeiesmorgens mensen!", "hola a tots!", or "Hoşgeldiniz!" as the case may be

Through the ongoing effort of some dedicated redditors, we'd like to announce UI translations in Dutch (with thanks to _bram_), Catalan (with thanks to edu) and Turkish (with thanks to obdurak).

We've still got loads of under-represented languages, so if you don't see yours in the language dropdown, we could probably use your help.

It's been roughly 1 year since we first created reddits for a variety of different languages. Ever since then, our Japanese reddit has always been the most popular -- even though we had absolutely know idea what people were submitting or talking about.

We still don't know, but now the interface has been translated. It's worth a look, even if you don't know Japanese, for the sheer coolness factor.

Interface and content language settings are in your preferences section. Oh, and did I mention that we've now got LOLreddit translated?

Go ahead and change your interface to LOL; you'll never go back. Thanks to chungkaishek and bobby200 for helping me get this translation just right.

Additionally, if you're a LOLscholar, you'd better not miss the LOLpanel at this year's ROFLCon. (A shameless plug, as I'm panel moderator)

Reddit in Spanish and...English?

In following with rolling out new reddit translations as they become available, we're glad to announce that, thanks to the work of elabo and potro, reddit can now be viewed in Spanish.

It was also pointed out that (despite what you might believe from looking at the politics subreddit) there are actually non-American users who also speak English as a first language, but with a slightly different flavo(u)r. So, with some help from xjvz, we've got an en-gb translation up as well. Enjo(u?)y!

[But remember: the call for translators is still open.]

"Salutare lume!" "Ciao gente!" "Pozdrav svima!" and "Hallo, alle sammen!"

This weekend we rolled out some updates to the preference page that not only make the layout easier on the eyes, but also allow content language to be specified independently of the interface language.

Today we'd also like to announce interface support for four more languages: Romanian brought to you by rozacruce, Italian by killerapp, Croatian by zaretina, and Norwegian by judofyr.
