September fundraising, website internationalization, new logo and other updates

Oct 02, 2020

Hello, ZLibrarians!

We would like to share the good news: the September fundraising campaign has been successfully completed. As you know every September and March we launch additional fundraising for the project maintenance and development. And thanks to your active support we are achieving our goals and moving forward! You are the best! We also know that many users failed to donate, but they really wanted to support us. Thank you very much for your efforts, we hope that by the next fundraising we will correct this situation.

Have you ever wondered how many languages are there in the world? A few months ago we asked ourselves whether it is convenient for users from different countries to use the English version of the site (the most complete and up-to-date version at that time) and realised that the project needs to be internationalized. So we would like to announce that we are translated into 28 languages now (some languages will be available soon): Arabic, Armenian, Azerbaijani, Bengali, Chinese, English, French, Georgian, German, Greek, Hindi, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Malaysian, Pashto, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Serbian, Spanish, Telugu, Thai, Turkish, Ukrainian, Urdu, Vietnamese. Hooray! You can try it now by changing the language at the bottom of the page. Please inform us by email If you find any translation mistakes. We’ll be very grateful for your help!

Converting files. We have slightly increased the limit and now the files up to 8 MB are available for conversion. Unfortunately, we can’t increase it more due to the technical limitations :(

Sorting options in categories. We have recently added sorting options to make it easier to find books by the category. Opening the category page it’s possible to sort books by Popularity, Date Added, Title, Year, and Size.

By the way, have you noticed that our logo was changed? What do you think of that? Looking forward to your feedback :)

Also, we would like to thank all concerned users reading our blog regularly and leaving their comments on the blog posts! Getting your feedback and adding your suggestions to the list of future improvements, no one is left behind.

Thanks for your attention! You are our inspiration for doing our very best! Be safe!
