IMO, HIBP is so useful that every single person in the world should have it bookmarked and all companies should monitor their domains accounts using it. Some users in our company use their business email address to create accounts in several websites, and thanks to HIBP our IT team is warned when one of them is pwned.
We thought it would be a great idea to tell everyone about HIBP so they could verify and monitor their own personal accounts, so we did it by sending an email telling about HIBP to everyone in the company. Everyone was able to check their personal email address, but a lot of users came to us asking how they should proceed to register to be warned by HIBP when their addresses appears in a breach.
"Notify me" is effective, even for people that don't speak English, but we noticed certain difficulty for a considerable number of people (we speak Portuguese in our country).
I'd like to suggest the translation of the site and the alerts it sends to the users.
HIBP offers an invaluable service to the internet, for free. I'm sure that people will help translate it to their languages for free too (l10n). I'm one of those. Count me on when (and if) you decide to make it available in other languages.

Hi, congratulations for your great initiative with hibp!
In order to benefit the spanish speaking users, it would be great to have hibp's main site sections translated to spanish.
Let me know if you need help with this. I’ll be glad to volunteer for this task.
I run a site called Cibersergei (https://cibersergei.com) focused on cybsercurity and education. It’s a non-profit site for end-users to help them create cybersecurity awareness and reach their goals protecting what it is most important.
Even though the site is in spanish, I’ve integrated automated translation to english (just click on the US flag at the top-right of the home page) in case you would like to take a look.
Looking forward to hearing and collaborating with you

personally, i'm bilingual, I find the site super useful. I live near Montréal, Canada. I just was watching the news 5 - 10 min ago on cable tv, they've shown your site for people to find information about potential leaks related to their email, the usual. However the TV station is in French. They mentioned "unfortunately, it is only in English". That would be cool for those francophone unilingual to find out how to use the site. Specially there's been increase in fraud attempts related to lots of recent leaks and/or government programs because of covid.

Count me in too in translating the site to Spanish and Catalan!
Pour les utilisateurs du Québec (de langue française) tous les messages et les analyses nous parviennent en anglais...
Est-il possible de les recevoir dans notre langue maternelle qui est le français?
Merci de votre collaboration.
