About the World Category in ODP
There are over 70 languages already represented in ODP World. If your language is not among these and you are interested in building out categories in languages that are not yet available, we will create your native language ODP category and you can sign up as an editor for it. Please include your login name in your email so that we can notify you when the new category is created. In addition, help us by translating the following information so that we can create the correct subcategories in the new language. Below are the standard subcategories used throughout the directory.
- English (give the name of the language you want, e.g. Español. This will become World/Español/... in the directory).
Contact an ODP Administrator with your request.
The text used in the public pages and in the CGI forms that make up the editor interface are translated from English into the language of the category (for publicly-viewable pages) or into the language that an editor uses. Editors listed in a World/language category can update these translations via a dedicated CGI interface.
