Add a New Language¶
The MASTG is a living document that changes and adapts to the most recent security recommendations every day. While we do want to reach the maximum audience possible, our past experience shows that maintaining translations has proven to be an extremely challenging task. Therefore, please understand that any PRs containing MASTG translations will be declined, but you're free to do them on your own forks.
🇯🇵 A translation of the MASTG into Japanese is available on Github: https://github.com/coky-t/owasp-mstg-ja. Thanks to @coky-t for pushing this forward!
That said, we **strongly encourage further translations of the MASVS as it is much easier to maintain and you'll get a translated Mobile App Security Checklists mapping to the MASTG for free.
