Sharetribe —

Sharetribe is a platform you can use to create your own peer-to-peer marketplace. You can either host your marketplace at or download the code and install it on your own server.

Tips for translation

When translating you can use Tab key and other keyboard shortcuts to move to the next translation field quickly, or e.g. select a suggested translation (CTRL+number)

In some strings there are parts marked like {word} or %{word} (these are shown in red) color. These are variables that will be filled with content that depends on the situation. Keep them as they are and Do not translate the words inside those marks!

If the platform sometimes says "validation failed" it usually just means that you have made your version of text significantly different from the original. If you think your text is good for your needs, just click "skip validation" and you can get your text saved.

Few long strings are full files that need to be translated as such. In them you need to keep the .haml tags and indentation as they are and only translate the strings that look like they should be translated. The HAML format may seem bit complicated, so do not hesitate to ask for help if needed!

If your marketplace is hosted at, your translations will automatically get updated to your site whenever the Sharetribe runs an update. This is usually done almost every weekday. If it's been several days and your translations have still not been updated, you can contact

Thank you very much for your help with the translations! Together we can make Sharetribe the biggest open source platform for starting marketplaces and the localizations by our volunteer translators make it easy to get started in many language regions.
