We also want to thank Manuel Locria, Dace Krutaine, and their team at Translators Without Borders for making Kolibri v0.11 available in Bengali, Chewa, Hindi, Swahili, Vietnamese, and Yoruba. Our gratitude also to the translators from Natakallam for their work on Farsi and Urdu, and to Devaki Kunte and her team at the Language Services Bureau for their work on Marathi and Telugu.

A special shout out goes to our friends Hiba Ibrahim and Stéphane Moutier for making Kolibri available in Arabic and French, respectively, and to the team at Education Without Backpacks for localizing Kolibri into Bulgarian. Thank you, guys!

Additional support

Learning Equality has created the Kolibri Edtech Toolkit, a customizable and adaptable set of resources to support understanding of use in a diverse set of contexts, including pedagogical and technical guidance for incorporating Kolibri into an educational program and creating effective learning environments.

Please note that the resources in our toolkit have not been updated to reflect v0.11 features yet.

Our previous Kolibri releases contain a variety of new and improved features, such as easy-to-use content import, support for right-to-left languages, and coach reporting tools. Please refer to our Release Notes for more details.
