Updates about tag translation and a new tag suggestion method
February 26, 2020
Greetings from pixiv.

From February 26, 2020, the way to suggest a tag translation will change.
From now on, translations can be suggested on the localization management platform "Crowdin".

Current tag translation status and impact of the changes
In April 2018, we released a feature to suggest tag translations on pixiv.
Currently, the number of translated tags in each language is as follows.
・ English: about 37,000 tags
・ Simplified Chinese: about 8,900 tags
・ Traditional Chinese: about 8,000 tags
・ Korean: about 4,400 tags

We have confirmed that English is the most translated language and that having translated tags increases the number of searches per user by about 50%.
With the increase in the number of searches, we were able to deliver works posted on pixiv to even more users.
We're truly thankful to everyone who helped translate these tags.

Overview of the new translation method
So far, we have been accepting translation suggestions on pixiv services.
From now on, suggestions can be submitted on the localization management platform " Crowdin".
