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.

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..

I can't understand you why switch the language to English-only that's not good for a Chinese student just like me!
