Provide translate for certbot instructions

Could you please provide translate for this instructions?

Many starter can not unerstand English well. If this instruction can provide non-English version, it should be possible for more people to use let's encrypt.

Hello @Kxuan
Welcome to the community!
To which language do you wish a translation? I cant tell from your post.
You can try to translate to your preferred language using this site:

https://translate.google.com/translate?hl=&sl=auto&tl=zh-TW&u=https%3A%2F%2Fcertbot.eff.org%2Finstructions

Hopefully it can work for you.

@jple @bmw can either of you provide any updates on translation efforts for Let's Encrypt or Certbot pages?

@Kxuan professional translation can be expensive, and both the Let's Encrypt and Certbot pages have a pretty large amount of content, so it can be hard to get complete translations and keep them up-to-date. The Let's Encrypt homepage at https://letsencrypt.org/ is maintaining partial or complete translations in 15 language versions (!) which is pretty impressive, but of course that doesn't include much end-user documentation for people using Certbot client applications.

I agree that this is an important thing that can have a big impact on the adoption of Let's Encrypt services.

Here on this forum we have now created official ways to ask for help in French, Portuguese, and Spanish

but of course that's just a small fraction of the most widely spoken languages. These support options depend on having forum community members who are familiar with these languages, although many people providing help also use automated translation, like Google Translate.

People are allowed to post questions on this forum in any language, although most people asking for help don't realize that.

We're currently working with people to translate at least some of https://certbot.eff.org into Farsi. I don't know when that's expected to be finished and I don't think there are plans for any other languages right now, but it's a start for us and work to support Farsi will probably make it easier for us to add support for other languages in the future.
