These community translation projects on Transifex help support internet freedom and privacy. We hope you’ll take a look and get involved!
Tor prevents people from learning your location or browsing habits. It is free software that protects your privacy and works for web browsers, instant messaging clients, and more.
Cryptocat is a fun, accessible app for having encrypted chat with your friends, right in your browser and mobile phone. Everything is encrypted before it leaves your computer. Even the Cryptocat network itself can’t read your messages.
Lantern is a peer-to-peer internet censorship circumvention software to give or get access to internet in places where access is censored.
By running Lantern, every user with uncensored internet access can now become an access point for those without, providing gateways to sites like Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and others that are widely blocked.
Martus is a tool used across the globe by human rights workers, attorneys, journalists, and others to securely document human rights abuses.
Recently, Martus released an Android application to allow observers to document abuses without needing a desktop computer.
StoryMaker enables existing and aspiring journalists all over the world to produce and publish professional-grade news with their Android phone, as safely and securely as possible.
It provides an interactive training guide, walkthroughs, and templates for users to follow as they plan their piece and capture media. The app then helps assemble the content into a finished format, with cuts and basic graphics.
