About OsText

Ostext is the best place to find and share open source translations.

The short story behind Ostext is that in 2012 Michael Jentsch needed a some text messages in different languages for a new open source project. After spending hours searching in different open source projects and looking for the perfect one for his needs, he came to the conclusion there must be a better way. He envisioned a site where it is easy to find messages that are used and translated in other projects without having to download or install them first.

At the moment there are more than five million translation messages available on ostext for you. With this, we want to help you capture more time for other tasks instead of reinventing the wheel translation.
