Summer, the period when holidays and open source contributions happen.

This July I’m very happy to announce that I completed the localization to Italian of Orchard CMS. I started it in March, and with many breaks, this weekend I completed the first “quality” version of the translation file, up to date with Orchard latest version 1.2, and it is now available among the official translations of Orchard.


If you want to try it, just download the it-IT version from the Orchard translation archive, install it (either unzipping or via the Translation Manager module) and browse through the pages of the Orchard administration.

And if you find any “weird” translation or some inconsistencies, just add a comment to this post, or send me an email.

I also want to thank the guys that helped me with some translation suggestion and testing the first drafts of the translation.

One quick note before closing the post: you will find some parts of the admin, in the dashboard and in the galleries, that are still in English. It is a bug in Orchard and the team is aware of it.
