It would be really awesome to offer tail.writer in many different languages! So you're really Welcome to translate tail.writer in your (native) language, but note, there are many strings to translate! Each translator gets also immortalized in the README file (as well as in the CHANGELOG file), gladly with link to your website too!

Thanks to every translator!

How To Translate

You can translate tail.writer by creating a new Issue or a complete Fork. Both methods requires a language code, which you can find here.
