Localization

From Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

Localization is the adaptation of language, content and design to reflect local cultural sensitivities.

Geni's current plans for localization include:

  • Complete Translation to other languages. Hopefully, this will be done soon, and with the help of the community.
  • Localized Date formats.
  • Additional fields that may be of particular interest to certain cultures.
  • The option to add multiple names. For example, one in Chinese and one in English.

Please help us reach your community by creating articles about your culture, religion or country, and special features that may be relevant to it.

Geni Labs

We are constantly trying to improve our site for our millions of users worldwide. We are excited to reveal Geni Labs and the first of our experiments: Translation. The translator uses Google Translator and you can choose any language to translate the majority of the site (with the exception of the Tree) into any language supported by Google Translator. This is the first step toward real localization and we appreciate any feedback you may have.

Countries and Languages

Feel free to add your own country or culture if you feel it requires any special consideration from Geni, or if you have any genealogy-related information about it. Countries that are very similar for our purposes (like Russia and Belarus) should be combined into a single article, whereas countries that have several distinct cultures in them may require several locales and therefore several pages here.
If you want to translate your language, please see the page for your country. If the translation is not started yet, you can start by looking here: How to create a translation page
