Translation Guidelines

The pages listed below provide guidelines for translation of CLDR strings. For instructions on how to use the Survey Tool, see CLDR Survey Tool.

People should be careful about changes to fields that were in a previous version of CLDR. Fields that are clearly incorrect should be changed, but there are many cases where two different values are both acceptable for a given field. For stability of the data, translators should avoid changing from one acceptable value to a different acceptable value, unless the second is clearly better, and in customary use.
