The Official Guide for KickassTorrents Translation Interface

First of all thank you for participating in our translation! We appreciate your contribution and hope that together we will be able to make KickassTorrents more available and easier to use for all people on this planet!

The Guide

The translation panel can be found here
When you enter the panel you will be offered to select a language from the drop-box, select your language and you will be redirected to the translation page.
The language page shows six columns id, description, plural, original, versions and comments.

  • Id is the code of the item, it can be used to make search easier or sent to other translators instead of the phrase;
  • Description points to the original position of the item (f.e. community/addforum means that the text is located on the add forum page in the community), can also contain a screenshot of the phrase on the website, example of the phrase on the website or a small clarification of the special symbols (%1, %2, etc.);
  • Plural indicates if the item requires more than one translation for certain phrase depending on the number used in the phrase;
  • Original is the original English phrase;
  • Versions is for translation text;
  • Comments for discussing the translation with other translators.

Above the translation you can see if the language is finished (the percentage) and you can see other translators who are working on this language. The translators are generated automatically by choosing all people who took part in the selected translation. It is important that you avoid translating phrases in other languages and stick to your language only, so that other translators won't be confused by a large number of volunteers on their language.
To translate a word click on the Arrow sign between the Original and Versions columns and you will be offered a box where you can enter your text. After that save the text and your translation will appear in the versions column and after the overall confirmation on the website. The pencil allows editing the translation and the red cross allows to delete a translation.
If you have some doubts about a translation please leave a message in the comment field (the last column) by pushing on the comment icon. If you can't come to some compromise or the other translators are not replying to the comment, please notify Mr.White8654 .
If the word has no translation in your language (f.e. api, seed, leech, etc.) please copy the English word. The percentage is calculated from the number of filled version fields, so it is important to fill them all.
Phrases can hold special symbols like %1 or parts of the code. Please make sure that you stick to the initial spelling and translate only the words outside the code.

If you have doubts about a phrase please alert Mr.White8654 via PM. You can also check the Russian version and see how it was translated there (you can easily distinguish the Cyrillic symbols from the inner code).

If you encounter a link in the translation please ignore the text within the html code.

<a href='text'>%1</a>

There is no need to translate this text!

Some phrases have plural forms, so if you see a yes in the plural column it means that you will need to enter two or more forms of translation depending on the language. It will be easy for each native speaker because he knows the numbers span that needs a different translation word. For example most of the Cyrillic languages have this change at number 5 (2-4 has one word and 5-999999 another).

Notice that the second translation has a different word. Enter the translations in numeric order f.e: first version for the 2-4 span, second version for the 5-999999 span, etc. If you have doubts about a phrase please alert Mr.White8654 via PM.

Due to the volunteer nature of this work all changes can be made by all translators, which means that you can correct and delete the versions of other translators. To avoid possible conflicts or vandalism, please be in touch with other translators and discuss the changes. It is important that we all work as a team and see our goal only as the overall benefit of KAT and not as someoneĆ­s nickname under all the versions.

The current version is still a beta so in case of any problems just refresh the page in the browser and missing things like the posting date will appear in the versions column.

While you translate stick to following rules:

  • If it is possible - try to make the translated phrase not longer than the original. If the phrase turns out to be too big and there is no way to shorten it and please notify Mr.White8654 and we will change the design for the specific language.
  • Make sure that the phrase fits the context and check the description field and the original website.
  • Synchronize all terms like username, userpic, community, etc. with other translators. Be sure that you use the same term in the whole translation.


From now on you receive the translator status, which gives you the access to the translation panel (but no additional powers). The Translator Status makes you a member of the Kickass People, still you are obliged to follow all the website rules and have no power over other users.

  • Please make sure that you stick within your language/languages and don't try to edit the ones that you don't know or haven't learned.
  • There might be more than one translator for each language and for some phrases each translator might offer his own translation. In this case you can discuss the versions in comment section attached as a small symbol on the right of each translation. All comments must be in English only, so that I can understand the issue and give final judgment in case of a draw. (The best arguments for such issues are similar translations used on other websites)
  • In all discussions please try not to insult other translators and keep everything professional. We don't have special rules for translators, but if you tend to create conflict situations you might loose the access to the translation web interface and the Translator status.

Mr.White8654 is responsible for the whole translation part, so in case of rudeness, insults or other translation issues please notify him over personal messages.
