Hi @ivan192, welcome to WordPress Meta Trac! Thanks for the ticket.

GlotPress as a plugin does support translations and is translated into 17 locales.

https://translate.wordpress.org, however, is intentionally displayed in English, to make sure that translators are fluent in both English and their native language. As explained in the translator handbook:

You need to be bilingual – fluent in both written English and the language(s) you will be translating into. Casual knowledge of either one will make translating difficult for you, and can make result in a localization that is confusing.
