Translations are in process at Foswiki's Weblate translation server.  Italian and Ukrainian are 100% complete.  Many others are in the high 90's. Translations are available for 23 languages, though some need a lot of work.  If you want Foswiki in your native language and can help with translating Foswiki, please contact the translations team at [hidden email]  Foswiki is now using continuous translation, so contributions at any time are very helpful. Foswiki thanks the Translators for their Herculean efforts.

Special thanks to all the developers, translators and testers who are working to make this release possible.
