As you may have heard, we are currently conducting a private beta test of our translation tools. These tools are being used by Geni users to translate the Geni interface into languages other than English. We have a small, but very committed group of a few dozen testers that have been translating the site since for the last five days. The results so far have been fantastic - over 11,000 translations have been supplied for 15 languages!

We're so thrilled with the results that we'd like to expand the beta to more users - if you are interested in helping us translate Geni into your language, please send an email to translate@geni.com. Please make sure to include the email address associated with your Geni account, or your profile id, and the language you are interested in translating.

If you're not interested in translating, but are eager to use Geni in your language of choice, we expect to make Geni available in the first group of translated languages in the coming weeks - stay tuned!

Considering the number of Estonians in Celebrity Top 100, I'd say E-stonian will be among the first to be translated!

Send an email to translate@geni.com if you want to get your language on this list!
