Trezor now available in Spanish, French and German

Trezor’s introduction of world languages embodies company’s commitment to broadening access to crypto security

Trezor, the original bitcoin hardware wallet company, today introduces Spanish, French and German language services for its market-leading cold-storage devices and its cryptocurrency management app, Trezor Suite

The availability of Trezor’s leading crypto technologies in three world languages, alongside the existing English version, embodies the company’s commitment to helping as many people as possible to enjoy the freedom, financial self-sovereignty and utility of cryptocurrencies. Trezor will also launch Czech language services in April for the benefit of users in its home market, one of the world’s leading Bitcoin hubs.   

With Spanish spoken by 599 million people worldwide, French by 274 million and German by 170 million – more than a billion people in total — the introduction of these languages to Trezor’s products and services echoes its goal of playing a key role in onboarding the next billion cryptocurrency users. 

Matěj Žák, Trezor’s Chief Executive Officer, said: “From the outset, our mission at Trezor has been to extend access to Bitcoin to as wide an audience as possible by enabling people to buy, manage and store it as simply and securely as possible. Enabling more people to use Trezor services in their preferred languages is an important part of delivering on that promise.”  

The price of bitcoin has once again recently reached an all time high, an event that is likely to encourage more cryptocurrency enthusiasts worldwide to explore the merits of self-custody. The collapse of high-profile crypto businesses in recent years highlighted the risks for the public of holding their cryptocurrencies on centralised exchanges – a risk encapsulated in the phrase, ‘not your keys, not your coins’. Making Trezor devices, firmware and the app available in Spanish, French, German and Czech will ease the path to self-custody for crypto owners who are less confident in English. 

The new language services will be available on the Trezor Safe 3, the entry-level hardware wallet for crypto newcomers and novices, on its flagship touch-screen Model T, and on the Trezor Suite management app. 

To optimise security and give users peace of mind, new Trezor devices arrive without firmware installed so that customers can be confident that their hardware wallets have not been tampered with. Users’ preferred language option will apply on the intuitive yet powerful crypto management app and also on their new device. Existing users can also change their language preferences for one of the world languages on Trezor Suite. 

Trezor will release the new language capabilities initially as a Beta version that will be continuously refined.

As part of the initiative Trezor is also funding Bitcoineta, a branded Land Rover that in conjunction with Bitcoin Cowries, will tour the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) taking the Bitcoin message to rural communities and schools acrosst the region.

The Bitcoineta vehicle is the fifth of its kind with other educational road-trips currently active in Central America, South America, Europe and South Africa. South America and Europe.    

The launch of Trezor Academy follows a successful pilot programme that took place throughout 2023 and saw the company and local influencers host events in Ghana, Nigeria, Cameroon, Uganda, Kenya and Burundi, helping to introduce attendees to the benefits of Bitcoin and the importance of self-custody via a series of meetups, presentations and Q&A sessions.

Trezor Academy has been made possible by the support of the bitcoin community.  21 Euro from each sale of Trezor’s limited edition, bitcoin-only version of its recently launched Trezor Safe 3 hardware wallet (which sold out in one day) has been pledged to fund this ongoing education work. Throughout 2024 the company plans to set up academies in more than 10 new African countries to engage with and educate hundreds more local educators, spreading the bitcoin message far and wide. 

The Bitcoineta road trip started on 1st December at Africa Bitcoin Conference, the largest Bitcoin conference held to date on the African continent, and for which Trezor is also a sponsor. Attendees at the conference were able to get information on the project’s future activities.  The vehicle's progress will be shared via the official Bitcoineta X account as well as documented through video blogs and traditional media.  

Matěj Žák, CEO of Trezor commented: “Bitcoin adoption is perhaps more relevant in Africa than on any other continent. Its properties provide a host of benefits that can work in concert with other local initiatives like payment schemes, microfinancing and savings.  As a company we are committed to helping spread this message via sponsoring events like Africa Bitcoin Conference, the Trezor Academy and awesome tie-ups like Bitcoineta. Going forward we believe that Bitcoin will have a significant economic and social impact on the African continent.”

Trezor launches new hardware wallets and its own metal recovery seed backup

New Trezor products arrive to guide crypto newcomers and novices on their journey to self-custody 

Trezor, the original hardware wallet company, today launches three stylish, intuitive and affordable tools aimed at helping crypto newcomers and novices on their journey to self-custody. The line-up of products consists of the Trezor Safe 3, an easy-to-use, secure hardware wallet available in four striking colours; the Trezor Keep Metal, the mistake-proof, convenient backup solution for your recovery seed, available in three variants; and, in celebration of Trezor’s 10-year anniversary, the limited edition Trezor Safe 3 Bitcoin only, which as the name suggests keeps custody solely of the original cryptocurrency. 

“Bitcoin, and the wider cryptocurrency sector, has been with us now for 14 years. It is no longer a niche interest. There are 420 million crypto owners worldwide and, according to predictions, this number will more than double by 2027 to almost a billion — one in eight of the global population. Events over the last year or so have demonstrated the risks people are taking when they entrust the custody of their cryptocurrencies to centralised exchanges. Time and again, we’ve seen the reality of ‘not your keys, not your coins’ play out. As we approach the next wave of Bitcoin adoption, we’ve introduced some compelling new devices that enable crypto novices and newcomers to enjoy the security and peace of mind that comes with owning and safeguarding their own crypto,” Matěj Žák, CEO of Trezor, commented.

Trezor Safe 3 hardware wallet 

Designed to meet the needs of the diverse crowds entering the crypto space, The Trezor Safe 3 hardware wallet is fantastic looking, easy to use and affordable. The device adds another layer of security with the introduction of a secure element, a tamper-resistant hardware component providing extra protection against physical attacks if users lose their device. Combined with a strong passphrase, which is never stored in the device, it delivers ultimate security for users’ crypto.

The Trezor Safe 3 embodies the company's commitment to open source development and the belief that the strongest, most robust security stems from full transparency about code, technology and components. Trezor has chosen a third-party secure element vendor* that allows it to publish any potential vulnerabilities it discovers and the Trezor Safe 3 still applies open source principles in using the security component. 

The device integrates with the Trezor Suite desktop application which has everything crypto novices need for managing their digital assets — whether buying, selling, exchanging, or saving crypto through dollar cost averaging — all in a single safe environment. Trezor Safe 3 supports bitcoin, ethereum and over 7,000 other coins. The Trezor Safe 3 retails for €79 / $79 and is available in four premium colours — Solar Gold, Stellar Silver, Galactic Rose and Cosmic black.

Trezor Keep Metal 

Trezor Keep Metal safeguards one of the most precious items in a crypto inventory: the recovery seed. If a Trezor hardware wallet is ever lost, damaged or stolen, users can use the recovery seed —  a unique string of words generated when first registering a Trezor device — to restore access to their entire wallet. 

Trezor Keep Metal ensures the safety of the recovery seed under any conditions, and eliminates mistakes when recording the words. Made from aerospace-grade stainless steel, resistant to corrosion, and with a watertight seal, Trezor Keep Metal protects the recovery seed backup against fire, water, acids and impacts.

Trezor Keep Metal can be used for both 12-word and 24-word standard backups — options which are available for €99 / $99. It is also suitable for Shamir backup, making it an ideal security solution for the Shamir-compatible Trezor Safe 3. The Trezor Keep Metal catering for 3 x 20-word Shamir backup sells for €249 / $249.

Trezor Safe 3 Bitcoin only 

To celebrate the 10-year anniversary since Trezor introduced the world’s first bitcoin hardware wallet, Trezor is also releasing a limited-edition run of a Bitcoin-only Trezor Safe 3 as part of the range. It solely runs Bitcoin-only firmware  and is available in the only fitting colour: bitcoin orange. In a nod to Trezor’s breakthrough year, only 2,013 of the devices will be available at a retail price of €79 /  $79. And in recognition of Bitcoin’s ability to empower individuals in under-privileged and marginalised communities, Trezor will donate €21 from each sale to support the Trezor Academy, a Bitcoin education initiative.

“We understand that self-custody can be intimidating, especially for newcomers. That’s why we have designed the new wallets and the backup solution with beginners in mind. They’re packed with security features to keep digital assets safe. Managing your crypto is now easier than ever with a Trezor Safe hardware wallet and the new Trezor Suite desktop and mobile apps,” Matěj Žák continued.

Pre-order the products

The Trezor Safe 3, the Trezor Keep Metal and the Trezor Safe 3 Bitcoin-only are available for pre-order now on and will be shipped in mid-November.
