Hi All.  I'm happy to report some good news in the mission to make
Nmap accessible to people worldwide.

First of all, Open Source Press has just released their German
translation of Nmap Network Scanning!  I worked closely with Dinu
Gherman who did the actual translating, and Dr. Markus Wirtz who runs
things there and took a great interest in the book.  It is currently
featured on their front page at https://www.opensourcepress.de/ and
the detail page for Nmap Netzwerke Scannen, Analysieren und Absichern
is at:


Even though I can't read German (and my copies haven't arrived to the
U.S. yet anyway), I have great confidence from my interactions with
Dinu and Markus that they did a superb job and created a very faithful

In addition, Open Source Press generously contributed their
translation of the Nmap Reference Guide so that we could post it free
online.  We've been desperately needing such a translation for years!
You can read it here:


I'm also happy to announce another new Nmap Reference Guide
translation: Indonesian by Tedi Heriyanto.  Here it is:


We now have the Nmap Reference Guide in 16 languages!  You can see
them all here (I added national flags this morning):


While 16 languages is great, we're always looking for new
translations!  If you speak a language other than those 16 (or think
an existing translation needs to be updated/improved) and would like
to help, let me know!  Here are the translation instructions:


We're also always on the lookout for translators for the Zenmap
frontend.  This is a substantially easier job than translating the
whole reference guide.  And so far, we only have translations to
German, French, Hungarian, and Brazilian Portuguese.  If you'd like to
add your native language, see:
