EFF’s Certbot tool helps to automate TLS/SSL certificates for web servers—and we believe that should be a global right. Certbot is a free, open source software tool for automatically using Let’s Encrypt certificates, and is part of EFF’s larger effort to encrypt the entire Internet. Websites need to use HTTPS to secure the web. Along with HTTPS Everywhere, Certbot aims to build a network that is more structurally private, safe, and protected against censorship.

A long standing goal is to make Certbot more accessible to those needing it in languages other than English. Today, we have taken that first step, by translating our Instructions Generator into Farsi.

Farsi is a highly requested language for developers that were struggling to access this much needed resource. With Certbot’s website now prepped for multilingual support (thanks to our amazing Engineering & Design and Tech-Ops teams), we plan to build in more support for translations come 2022.

EFF is grateful for the support of the National Democratic Institute in providing funding for this translation effort. NDI is a private, nonprofit, nongovernmental organization focused on supporting democracy and human rights around the world. Learn more by visiting https://NDI.org.
