The GBIF.org network is working to expand the range of languages available to users worldwide. Currently, it is possible to access the site and choose, besides English, from Spanish, Japanese and now Portuguese interfaces. The Portuguese version was officially published yesterday, enabling the users of the Community of Portuguese Language Countries to work on the platform using their native language. The international data portal still plans to have the interface translated into Russian, Chinese, Danish, among others.
However, the translation efforts from the international portal of GBIF has more challenges ahead and soon articles and content will be also translated. The results will be updated as progress is made over the next months, and users can also keep track of this and other information, directly on the Portal or through our Twitter and Facebook pages.
