This project is developed and maintained entirely by volunteers. If you are concerned about the loss of privacy, rampant surveillance capitalism, micro-targeting and misinformation and the addictive nature of digital services then you can help:
We would like this service to be available in many languages. Should yours not be among the ones currently available, or be in need of updates or improvement, we would love your help!
We use the online platform Crowdin to easily craft the translation strings. It makes the process much easier, and doesn't require you to know anything about programming. There is a quick tutorial available here. Follow these steps to get started:
Make an account at Crowdin by following this link.
Follow this link to load the translation system.
Choose a language (you will need to log in to Crowdin to do this).
You should now see boxes surrounding the various bits of text that make up the website. Hover over the text you wish to translate and click on the icon which will appear at the corner of the text.
An editor will open up where you can provide your translation. Don't forget to click save when done.
If you are experiencing any problems please contact us.
Our repositories are hosted on GitHub, with the main one being for this website. The best way to start is to get in touch via email. We will then add you to our slack channel and share ongoing development efforts. Alternatively, feel free to clone the repository and submit merge requests.
We are always looking for better ways to promote Digital Rights and make them more accessible. Whether it's to better understand how people use technology or how organizations abuse it, there are always research projects going on. Please email us if you'd like to get involved.
While we cannot afford to pay you for your work, we are more than happy to give you credit for your contributions, whether it's on this website, on github, or in other ways.
YourDigitalRights.org was created because we believe that privacy matters, and that exercising your right to privacy should be easy. That's why we've made it free. By donating, or becoming a supporting member you can help ensure our long-term financial stability and independence.
