Translation support from the Community for the Mobile Apps, we need your help!

Dear Rocket.Chat community,

Over the past almost 2 years we’ve been developing the native apps of Rocket.Chat for iOS with the help from our community. We really want to make sure that our users have the best experience, no matter what part of the world they live in. All the support for languages that we (the mobile team) don’t natively speak has been amazingly done by you, the community!

We now have support for 11 languages in our iOS app and 8 languages in our Android app, and need your help to expand the language support of the apps and to maintain it. All the support we had over this time was given by very kind people from the community that went to our project in GitHub and submitted pull-requests with the changes.

We are very thankful for every contributor and now we want to open this opportunity to the larger community to further improve our translations. If you can help us translate, we can use your help. You do not even have to be fluent with how to use Github, we will help you.

What we need?

We know that many of you are willing to help with the translation if you had the opportunity and we think that’s the chance. We want to create a group of people that we can count on in order to prepare the strings on their native speaking language before we release a new version to all users. We need candidates for these languages:

  • English
  • German
  • Japanese (1 slot)
  • Greek (2 slots)
  • Spanish (2 slots)
  • French (2 slots)
  • Polish (2 slots)
  • Portuguese (Portugal) (2 slots)
  • Portuguese (Brazil)
  • Russian (1 slot)
  • Ukrainian (2 slots)
  • Dutch (1 slot)
  • Persian (1 slot)
  • Your language is not here? Great, contact me and we can add support to your language as well!

How is this going to work?

If you want to help us with one (or more) language, contact me at and I’ll give you further instructions. We are still working on the update schedule, the current plan is by ~20th of each month we’re going to send you the list of strings that needs to be translated and you’ll have about 10 days to help us doing that.

Thank you very much for all the support!


I don’t have an iphone, but I am more than willing to translate your language files into Dutch.


Awesome!!! The translations are for iOS and Android, you don’t need to have a device, just a computer to translate the strings! Please, send me an email to so I can send you more info.:slight_smile:

Hi, I would love to help translate what you have into Norwegian, so this may also be added to the list of supported languages.

Let me know if you need help.

I didn’t see your announce, i tried to propose an update for french few days ago :

It’s not perfect, few strings are missing, but my users who don’t speak english desespertly need something to be done.

We just released 4.10 and 4.11 stable might take a while, as we’re working on E2E encryption as its main feature.
Does your users use iOS or Android?
I can release an early version of 4.11 on the Experimental app for them.

Hi rafael,
I might have a suggestion for you.
Your initiative to expand language support in Rocket.Chat is commendable!
Have you considered utilizing AI translation tools to assist in preparing initial translations? These tools can streamline the process, making it easier for contributors to refine and improve specific language translations.
