The Solar Powered Website in Spanish, French, and Other Languages

During the last months we have been working on transforming Low-tech Magazine into a multilingual publication.

Many articles had been translated over the years, but they were not easy to find. Now, each language has its own solar powered main page.

The Spanish and French versions are the most complete for now, with respectively 41 and 34 articles online. Dutch, German, Polish and Italian main pages are also available. Some languages also have articles that are not translated into English.

Every language can be accessed by clicking on the globe on the right side of the menu. There are also links to translations in the articles themselves.

Most articles have been translated by volunteers, whose names are mentioned just below the introduction. If you are interested in doing translations, please get in touch. If it concerns a new language, we may also ask you to translate some site elements.

Several languages have their own e-mail newsletter: English, Spanish, French and Dutch. Subscribers will receive a maximum of twelve e-mails per year. There’s a lot more content to add, so stay tuned.
