What we translate and why
There are many brilliant open-source products for privacy and data protection. However, most of them have no Russian version, making it difficult for Russian-speakers to benefit from them.
We, iFreedomLab, see our mission in making such type of software products understandable for Russian and in supporting Russian translation.
If you want to discuss the translation of your software and manuals, do not hesitate to contact us: [email protected].
Our service is free for open-source products.
Symmetric encryption for all file types and sizes.
An open-source, free tool for encrypting and decrypting files using the symmetric encryption principle, available as a web application and as a utility for common operating systems, where it performs all operations directly on the user’s device, without collecting or transmitting any user data. It works with all files types and sizes. Use the principle of symmetric encryption.
An add-on that completely encrypts and masks all user traffic.
It uses encrypted unidirectional tunnels and a network of nodes to route traffic. Traffic within I2P does not communicate directly with the Internet: I2P hides the server from the user and the user from the server. The s open-source service is free and have come from German developers.
An encrypted document collaboration editor.
In fact, it is a collaborative workspace with cloud storage like GoogleDocs, but it only transfers all data in encrypted form and uses blockchain to resolve edit conflicts. It offers 8 products: text, spreadsheet and presentation editors, a forms and survey creator, a graphics editor (drawing), a code editor and task scheduler (Kanban) and cloud encrypted storage. Open-source free service from the French developers.
One of the best email encryption add-on browser services.
Based on the OpenPGP standard, it works in FireFox, Edge, and Chromium-based browsers (including Chrome, of course). It integrates into the web interface of popular mailers like Gmail and Mail.ru; and works with any operating system. Some time ago, Mailvelope expanded its functionality, adding an option to encrypt users files directly on computers.
A VPN service that protects the privacy of Internet surfing.
It works with thousands of servers ensured high speed and seamless connection with absolute privacy. It also secures the connection to public networks (public Wi-Fi) and data transferred over such networks.
It works on Windows PC, Android and iOS on mobiles.
It is an open-source service.
It allows leaving no information about the user’s activity either on the Internet or on the workstation (computer or laptop).
Tails supports basic functionality: working with documents (via Libre Office), e-mails (via Thunderbird client), file exchanging (OnionShare, via TOR), and several other useful add-ons like KeePassXC for storing passwords. Tails saves nothing to the hard disk and leave no trace after restarting. Tails uses the TOR browser for Internet connection allowing the user to stay completely anonymous. Also, when working with Tails, online trackers and advertisements are completely blocked.
We’ve translated the service website in partnership with eQualitie. Now we are working on a complete translation into Russian.
Tor is a net based on «onion routing». Traffic inside it passes through three different servers minimum before reaching its destination. Each of these steps adds a new layer of encryption. That’s why it is named «onion routing.» Tor redirects traffic through a distributed network of servers worldwide. Service is supported by volunteers.
For information we translated the Tor support site: now all the basic questions about using TOR are available in Russian.
The translation is done in 2020.
