Seeking Volunteers to Translate Public Knowledge Project Documentation

We are seeking volunteer documentation translators to translate PKP’s documentation.

Thanks to the tireless efforts of our volunteers, PKP’s software has been translated into 45+ different languages. Our user base is global, and we want to continually improve the accessibility of our tools for academic publishing communities worldwide. 

In addition to our open source software and publishing services, PKP also maintains an extensive library of documentation for its users at PKP Docs. Our collection of documentation includes user guides for OJS, OMP, and OPS as well as guides for branding journals; starting student journals; improving accessibility, discoverability, and indexing; and much more.

PKP has recently adopted Crowdin as a platform for translating these guides so the information can be more easily shared with our global community. 

If you are interested in volunteering, please read the documentation translation guide to learn how to register and participate.  

Please don’t hesitate to send any questions you may have about documentation translation to documentation@publicknowledgeproject.org.
