The information in this wiki hasn't been maintained for a good while. Some of the projects described have since been deprecated.

In particular, the "Ushahidi Platform v3.x" section contains information that is often misleading. Many details about this version of Platform have changed since.

This website is an extraction of the original Ushahidi wiki into a static form. Because of that, functions like logging in, commenting or searching will not work.

We're brainstorming on which languages need Translation or Localization help from the Ushahidi Community and our friends at Translators without Borders. We're focusing on Crowdmap and Ushahidi Platform, then we take aim at the mobile services.  (More about how to Localization and Translation @ Ushahidi).  These are just a start. If you have other languages that you'd like to help with, please simply sign up to Transifex and start. Thanks so much!
