Much of this work is thanks to the hard work of our Google Summer of Code 2017 students.

Additionally, there have been continuous improvements to many of the translations. If you don't see your language or find a problem, you can contribute too; see https://www.phpmyadmin.net/translate/ for details.

Thanks to our sponsors for helping to make this work possible!
