JASP Translators

Thanks to the tireless efforts of volunteer translators, JASP 0.15 is now available in the following languages other than English: German, Dutch, Japanese, Galician, Portuguese, Chinese (incomplete) and Spanish (incomplete). We will highlight the contribution of the translators on this page.

If you want to contribute, please read our guidelines for JASP translators. Any translation help is appreciated, whether it concerns refinement of current translations or whether it involves setting up an entire new language. We hope and expect that the translated versions of JASP will be useful to students, teachers, and practitioners.

German

Thomas Langkamp, Johannes Keyser, Malte Lüken

After discovering JASP in 2018, Thomas Langkamp has become more and more involved. Nowadays he writes on a statistics-with-JASP-textbook, translates JASP via Weblate and uploads German JASP tutorials to his YouTube channel. The passionate teacher at medical school Hamburg switched completely to JASP for his teaching activities in 2020 and encourages all statisticians to join the JASP community. Johannes Keyser started contributing German translations in version 0.13, when their teaching team started to use JASP in their statistics classes. Since then, he contributed translations to all modules except Prophet. Johannes says that translating can be an interesting challenge because JASP offers many modern methods without well-established German terms. Thankfully, the translation team keeps growing and Weblate’s automatic suggestions minimize repetitive work and sometimes even provide involuntary humor. From his point of view as a researcher at Justus Liebig University Giessen, Johannes believes that the creation of free and open tools is important for the scientific community and fortunately, JASP proves that the process can be fun as well. Malte Lüken translated the JASP Prophet module. Malte is a PhD candidate at the Centre for Contextual Psychiatry and Mind Body Research Group at KU Leuven.
