How can I publish an instructable in different languages?

I speak English, Spanish and some French. I'd like to translate my instructables (in English) to Spanish and French, so that more people could read them, but I don't know how to do it. Do I have to make a new instructable written in Spanish or French? I've seen that when you create a new instructable now, they ask you to choose a language. You have the option of choosing Spanish, English, German... but not French. What should I do?

BTW, I created a few years ago an instructable that got many views. One day I realized that I had 5 "drafts" I have not created in my profile account. When I clicked on the link I saw this instructable automatically translated to Spanish , German, Portuguese, Chinese and Japanese. Why did this happen? What should I do?

Thanks for the help!

You can just re-write the instructable in any language you like, or you can use one of the Instructables "sister sites", that are already in other languages:

The extra projects you mentioned were translated by staff to populate the sister sites - it happens to quite a few popular projects.

I don't know what happened to the Instructables sister websites in other languages. When I try to go there now, they just seem to redirect to the main Instructables homepage.

You could try publishing your article in French on It tries to make it easy to search for and publish articles in any language.
