Translate for your community

Linux Professional Institute (LPI) believes that the people who work with Linux and open source technologies should be encouraged, in every way possible, to celebrate their work, and share their experiences in their language!

We are looking for multilingual community members and reviewers with an interest in translating technical content to help people in other languages to have the opportunity to learn and understand Linux, open source, along with LPI information and educational materials.

LPI has certified professionals in over 180 countries and delivers exams in multiple languages. Join our team of translators.
