Tuxemon has support for several languages. Because Tuxemon is a community project and not all members are intimately familiar with or fluent in each language, there are possible translation errors. We also acknowledge that some translations may have errors intentional or otherwise that could be offensive or inappropriate.

We make every effort to test using automated tools such as google translate to test translations, but these are not perfect tools.

If you spot a translation error that is inappropriate, please open a github issue and be respectful to the team. We do not wish for translation errors and will do what we can to make sure the game is fun and enjoyable to everyone.
