Hey all, today we’re launching a resource to make it easier for entrepreneurs to find translations of Paul Graham essays in their native language. Paul Graham’s essays are one of the best resources available for startup founders and entrepreneurs. Over the years PG has been gracious enough to link to translations of his essays. Since he’s been writing these for almost two decades it should come as no surprise that some of these links have moved or no longer exist. There was also no way to find a complete list of all Paul Graham translations in a particular language. So we created this resource to make it easier for entrepreneurs around the world to find essays in their native language. Please let us know about any translations we missed. We’ve posted some new translations and we’ll continue to add them over time. There are great founders in every corner of the globe. The world is getting flatter and traditional barriers to entry are lowering every day. By increasing access to resources we can help good ideas spread faster. When that happens we all win. We hope this small contribution of ours can contribute to that movement. Enjoy!!

@lebuffet @rogerdickey Hi Cedric, we have forms at the bottom of the page but you can also email me at and we can take it from there. We're happy to link out to external translations or host them on our site.

This is very helpful, especially for concepts and terms that non-native English speakers not understand very well. Thanks for sharing!
