GitHub will switch to English-only on Friday, May 20, 2011.

Hello friends,

As you may know, we haven't done a great job making GitHub work for non-English speakers. Large parts of the site are not internationalized, including our support and help documentation, and this problem is not improving.

Making GitHub awesome in non-English languages is a big project and one we're honestly not equipped to take on right now. So on Friday May 20, 2011 we will disable our international support and switch GitHub to English-only.

Thanks for understanding. We are majorly focused on making GitHub a fast, reliable, and fantastic tool in your development arsenal.

The GitHub Team

I understand that the inconsistent translations for example, not everything is translated in french) was a bad point when trying to sell your products to international companies.
But as a open source developer with a free personal account I appreciated the effort done and will miss it.

Translations at very few parts really helped big number of people at least until now.
I wish GitHub will start new i18n project after improving features..
