Twenty Languages. One Tree.
Geni's user base is truly international, with family trees extending around the globe. Our largest tree connects users from Israel to Estonia, from Norway to Malaysia, and just about everywhere in-between. Over half of our users come from outside of the United States, even though Geni has only been available in English – until now.
A few weeks ago we invited a small group of users to use our new translation tools to translate Geni. The response has been fantastic - a few dozen volunteer translators have translated the site into twenty languages in less than two weeks.
Letting users around the world use Geni in their native language is an important step towards our goal of creating a single family tree of the entire world. Every tree support multiple users with multiple languages. Users can switch languages on the fly, and every part of Geni is available in every language we support.
All Geni translations have been provided by volunteer translators. You can help translate Geni, even if your language is already translated. You can vote on existing translations, and add new translations as we update the site.
