    I have an online calculator at and am seeking translations so that we can spread this tool to more hobbyists.

    Those translations will be added to version 2 of this calculator, which is in development but available at

    Here's all you've got to do:

    Take this file and edit it for your translation. Please use the sites above for the context of the translations.

      target: To reach your target of %1 you will need to add %2 of %3 to your 
      target_solution: container.  Add %1 of that mix to your
      target_end: aquarium to yield
      solubility: The solubility of %1 at room temperature is %2.  You should adjust your dose.
      k3po4: K3PO4 in solution tends to raise pH due to the nature of KOH, a strong base. ray-the-pilot explains this for us gardeners [URL=""]at APC[/URL]
      eddha: Be aware that EDDHA will tint the water pink to red at even moderate doses.  You can check out a video of a 0.2ppm dose [URL=""]here[/URL].
      urea: This product has some unknown percentage of N as Urea and as NO3.  The calculation and chart below works with NO3 equivalents.
      cu: Your Cu dose is %1 % more than recommended for sensitive fish and inverts. Consider reducing your %2 dose by %3 [URL="http://y.["]Read more about Cu toxicity here[/URL]

      ei: Classic EI depends on good CO2, good circulation, and regular water changes.  Light past moderation is not so important.
      ei_daily: This is traditional EI reduced to daily dosing levels.
      ei_low: This is EI scaled for once a week dosing under low light. The EI ranges below are over time for most tanks.
      pps: We have calculated for a PPS-Pro daily dose.  The recommended range below is for a stabilized mature tank.
      pmdd: PMDD does not dose %1. But maybe you should.
      ada: The ADA fertilization system includes nutrient-rich substrate, while their liquid fertilizers supplement the water column until the substrate is depeleted. The ADA elemental analysis is courtesy of Plantbrain/Tom Barr and is available at [URL=""]The Barr Report[/URL]

    ei_daily: Este EI tradicional es reducido a dosis diarias.
    ei_low: Es es EI disenado para una onza de agua a baja luz. Para la mayor parte de los tanques, los rangos de EI abajo son a lo largo del tiempo.
    pps: Hemos calculado para una dosis diaria de PPS-Pro. La recomendacion referida abajo es para tanques profesionales.
    pmdd: PMDD no es una dosis %1. Pero deberias.
    ada: La fertilizacion de sistemas ADA incluye sustratos ricos en nutrientes, mientras que los fertilizantes liquidos suplen las columnas de agua hasta que el substrato es consumido por completo. El analisis de ADA es una cortesia de Plantbrain/Tom Barr y puede ser encontrado en The Barr Report

    After you're done, you can pass the translation along to me via a post here, PM, or however you'd like. If you make a new file, save your version as .yml. For example, Polish will be pl.yml

    Bonus points for forking this project and sending me a pull request via GitHub: This will give you a commit to a open source project whose goal is to always be available and improved upon for the hobby, forever. You'll find these files in the i18n directory.

    If you can't provide a translation, I hope you forward this to any friends who may be able to help.

    Thank you dutchy!

    We've added new fields, and the updated document for contributing translations is here:

    I've also brought up a contact form where you can just paste translations, which is linked in the document above.

    We've also begun adding Romanian with Florin Ilia's contributions, as well as refining the Spanish translation with DanielSev's work

    Thank you!
