La Quadrature du Net started the GAFAM poster campaign around November 2017 in order to support their call for donations. After getting hooked at the 34C3 congress, we picked this up in January 2018 to support the lovely people of LQDN in covering the whole world.
The original French poster texts and its translations into English have been uploaded to the gafam-poster-translations repository on GitHub using the GNU gettext format. Starting from February 2018, translations can also be edited online using GAFAM on Weblate.
Until May 2018, we have been able to collect translations into 16 languages. Enjoy!

We encourage you to contribute a translation if you feel it is missing from the list. In the beginning, we had French, English and German as translated by the people of LQDN. As of now, we have been able to add translations into Japanese, Esperanto, Russian (half-finished), Mandarin Chinese, Italian, Polish, Norwegian and Catalan from the community. Thank you so much!
However, there are still many languages to go for...
