Localization for languages such as Spanish, French, German, Italian,etc. Let's translate Smugmug!
Too many of my clients don't speak English as first language. Please add this feature to the printind outside the US one and we will all benefit.
hello I´m interested in an spanish version. Our clients are spanish and it´s easiest for them see the contact form in spanish.
For the owners of the site it would be better too if we can see all the options in spanish.
You will have more photographers with smug mug webs
Make the shopping cart and checkout procedure multi language.
This would highly imporve the commercial potential of selling downloads photo's accross the world, in other languages.
Vous parlez le FRENCH? moi pas parler votre langue!
Mes amis, le club, ma famille serions heureux d'utiliser vos services! mais comme vous ignorez la langue de notre pays, vous comprendrez la méfiance que nous avons!
Conquérir c'est bien, l'integration, c'est mieux!
A bientôt le plaisir de vous lire In FRENCH!
Desarrollar los productos y servicios en Idioma Español...sencillo.
I think that other languages should be included at least for the commercial end....that is the actual buying.
In additon things should be priced in Euro. Dollars frighten europeans and most major people like amazon and E-bay understand this. In addition we need to be able to print in europe too as the costs + customs and excise duty is too high
Making the site/tool able to support other langages. Specifically, in my case i would need french.
i need a german version of smug mug - this would be great
Would be very useful
SmugMug is a very text rich site and we’re going to focus on some other exciting projects at this time. We’ll keep this open though so that we can revisit it in the future!

Hi, I would just suggest that you add the option to have different languages. The translation should be done by the web owner. You can see this option on most web pages from other countries outside US. You hit a country flag and you link to your web in the desired language. I believe this could encourage user from other countries to opt for your service. Users want to have access to their local market (web in local language) and global market (english language).
Depuis le temps qu'on le demande, je me demande à quoi ça sert cette page ???
j'aimerais bien Sugmug en Français. Merci.

I have all the texts and menus in Czech, no problems 90% of the time, I only need to customise few things (buttons, some system generated texts) as it looks very unprofessional to have these things appear in a different language than the rest of the site. In fact I do not need a translation, I only need the option to be able to customise all the texts. And of course an option for the viewer to switch the language version would be great too.

Wow this is such a disappointment... so many vote and keep ditching it. If you guys wants to keep focusing on the US Market only say it, I don't mind, but at least admit it. But even then there's a lot of latin american in the us...
I have no words other than, wow, after all this time, so disappointed...
If you guys pop over into our Support Forums, http://www.dgrin.com/forumdisplay.php?f=64, we can discuss customizing some aspects of your site to change to any wording you'd like, in your language of choice. Would that help in the meantime?
so then without me, 3 years waiting is enough
To answer to your question, for me what is the drawback is the non localization of the frontend (what visitors see). The admin panel may stay in English, but I absolutely need all what a visitor sees to be translated in local language
Sad to read this ansWer. Translation is a no brainer. No localization meant no customer. At least myself since my clients do not speak English. Hope you got more with your cool feature.
The viewer sections would be great so that users who only view stuff can select their language of choice. The setup/vendor UI can stay in English, at least that would be a good workaround for me. It would be good for me to see what a viewer would see though.
Really...? What other people say, and how they say it, and in what language they say it, is not exciting? Lo siento mucho que piensen así. Eu não gosto de esta decisão. Ce n'est pas une bonne decision!
@Luis: The issue is more design related than actual translation. We need to ensure that all aspects of the site make your photos look their best and that can be difficult when buttons increase in length or text doesn't fit where it's supposed to and starts wrapping in unexpected ways.
We'd love to be able to do this but not at the cost of letting other highly desired features suffer. We wanted to let you guys know that while we're not doing it right now it's possible we could do it at some point in the future. It's not a no...
I'd like to understand the request a little bit better. Are you asking for us to translate the viewer facing sections of the site (like the buy buttons, the shopping cart, etc)? The admin / customize sections that only you see? Both? If we were to implement one side first, would you rather we localize the viewer facing sections?

You don't even have to do it yourselves, let your users generate the translation packages a la opensource.
I think that many of us would translate your site for free! Even if there is a lot of work and words to translate..
Luis García Pimentel commented
wow 5 years later and a simple NO for an answer. This should have been on your top priorities list from day one of the site redesign. Not all the world is USA or speaks english.

If there are certain aspects of your site that you would like to change the wording, head on over to our Support Forums at www.dgrin.com and someone might be able to help come up with some customizations to translate parts of your site.
I have a transnational family spanning multiple languages... English, Spanish, French, Portuguese with friends living in many other countries. I was about to jump onto SmugMug and my last test was exactly the internationalization feature... and I am stunned to not find it. It's a global world... we need apps to work in multiple languages.
Czech translation please!
Please add Italian language...
