If you are interested in helping out the project by translating the manual or the Tor Browser to your language, your help would be greatly appreciated! Tor Project localization is hosted in the Localization Lab Hub on Transifex, a third-party translation platform.

Before translating, please read through the Tor Project page on the Localization Lab Wiki. There you will find translation guidelines and resources that will help you contribute to Tor translations, as well as translation priorities.
