We are happy to announce that, as of May 2020, the number of translation collaborators for the tags that can be set for pixiv works has exceeded 12,000. When the translation suggestion feature was first released, translation suggestions were only accepted directly on pixiv. Now, the feature has been moved to the localization management platform Crowdin. Including English, Korean, Simplified Chinese, and Traditional Chinese, we have gathered translation suggestions from 11,369 users on pixiv, while our Crowdin project counts 763 members. This is the 6th largest project on Crowdin, and the largest among the 24 projects in the social media category (as of May 25, 2020). The translation suggestion feature was developed to make it easier for international users to find works. Thanks to the help of the many volunteers in our translation community, more than 60,000 work tags have been translated and are now available on pixiv. pixiv's goal is to help people overcome language barriers and find new works to love by providing an accurate translation of the ever-growing work tags. Due to other functional improvements, the number of users on pixiv is increasing daily. Japanese users increased by 10% over the previous year, while international users saw a 30% growth. Thank you for your patronage with pixiv. The number of registered users on pixiv has surpassed 50 million! pixiv https://www.pixiv.net/info.php?id=5795 2020-05-27T16:00:00+09:00 Greetings from pixiv. We are glad to announce that on April 28, 2020 (4614 days after the birth of pixiv), the number of registered users on pixiv exceeded 50 million. When pixiv was first launched, the majority of posts on the service were the work of Japanese users. However, in the past two years in particular, the number of contributions from international users has increased significantly, and now over 40% of all active users are from countries other than Japan. The number of posts on pixiv, by both Japanese and international users, has been increasing: a witness of everybody's growing enthusiasm towards creative activities. On pixiv, users come together through their works and find a common ground where they can be united by their shared tastes and passions; this promotes empathy in a variety of situations. pixiv thrives on the feelings of creators, who never stop contributing with new works, and of all fans who love and appreciate art. It's because of this empathy and these feelings that pixiv continues to be an exciting space where everybody can enjoy creative activities. In the turmoil of recent years, the environment surrounding many creators and those who support their activities has changed drastically. At pixiv, we will continue to support our creators' work to keep the fire of creativity burning. Thank you for your patronage with pixiv.
