As part of Hacktoberfest 2022, the user-statistician GitHub Action, which generates an SVG with a detailed summary of your activity on GitHub, is seeking contributors to translate the headings, labels, etc to additional languages for increased internationalization. This post is a brief update on the progress of this effort, as well as an additional call for Hacktoberfest contributors.

In the first 12 days of Hacktoberfest, there have been two new releases, with a total of 6 brand new contributors adding 5 new language translations: Dutch, Hungarian, Norwegian, Romanian, and Thai.
The user-statistician GitHub Action now includes support for the following 21 languages: Bahasa Indonesia, Bengali, Dutch, English, French, German, Hindi, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Lithuanian, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Spanish, Thai, Turkish, Ukrainian.
There are still 19 days left of Hacktoberfest 2022. And there are still open issues for language translations including the following languages: Afrikaans, Albanian, Arabic, Armenian, Chinese, Czech, Danish, Finnish, Greek, Persian, Swedish, Tagalog, and Vietnamese. Or if you stumble upon this post after Hacktoberfest, you are of course welcome to contribute at any time.
You are also of course welcome to contribute translations to any language not currently supported. If there isn't already an open issue for it, start by submitting an issue so I know you want to work on it.

The SVG that the action generates includes statistics for the repositories that you own, your contribution…
