We also have 4 languages partially supported: Belarusian (85%), Brazilian Portuguese (92%), German (89%), Lithuanian (84%).
As said in the previous news, we decided to only ship translations that are at least 80% completed to let the children have a better experience and not half translated software. Unfortunately, we had to drop the translation for: Estonian, Finnish, Irish Gaelic, Scottish Gaelic, Galician, Hindi, Macedonian, Norwegian Nynorsk, Russian, Slovak and Chinese Simplified.
If your language is in the partially supported list, or is no more or not yet supported at all, and you want to help, please contact us ([email protected]) and we will give you instructions to get started translating.
Another way to help is to write some posts in your community about GCompris, and don't hesitate to give us some feedback.
Thank you all,

The application includes all kinds of tests: intelligence, ability, reflexes, strategy, maths, science..
Some are very interesting if you want to initiate a kid into how to use a computer: a photograph made with paintings which will appear as you go over it with a mouse, some fish that disappear if you click on their bodies, etc.
But there are also more complicated games, like a submarine that you will have to submerge before it bumps into a ship: in a few second you will have to direct the rudder, fill or empty the water tanks to optimize the burden and much more.
Some of the tasks may seem complicated even for adults, like one that allows you to create jigsaws with difficult solutions.
