Topic: Translation files for IDE 1.9 (Read 4968 times) previous topic - next topic

Hello.

I was one of the IDE translators in 2012, since that year I did not do any changes in the spanish file. Now with IDE 1.9 some changes are needed for a correct translation.

In 2012 I was working in this repository:
https://github.com/juandg/IDE_translations

But I'm not sure if this repository is still in use for the latest IDE versions. Can anyone confirm this?

Thanks.

It's now done on Transifex:
https://www.transifex.com/mbanzi/arduino-ide-15/
Thanks for the translation work you have done!

Also, maybe you're aware already, but they're currently working on translating the language reference pages to Spanish in this repository:
https://github.com/arduino/reference-es

The translation effort for the arduino-ide is very impressive. I just had a look at the Transifex project.
However, I had not heard of it before the original posters question in this thread.

Is their any active effort in recruiting technical folks to assist in the translation?

I only speak English and Spanish, but I personally know many technical people who speak (fluently) some of the languages where only 25% of the work is completed thus far.

In addition to the IDE work, I've also been impressed with the progress on translating the reference pages. There are repositories for other languages listed here:
https://github.com/arduino?q=reference
I thought it was a bit overly ambitious when I saw them create those empty repositories years ago but in the last month or so the project has really kicked into gear. Hopefully people will be available to actively translate to keep them in sync with the English reference pages as they are improved.

I don't see much evidence of active recruitment but maybe it's happening on the other language sections of the forum. We did add a note about to the Arduino IDE repository's CONTRIBUTING.md file (since people incorrectly submit IDE translations to that repo sometimes). There is also a page on the Arduino Playground about it. It seems like a great way for someone with the language skills to make a valuable contribution. It doesn't necessarily entail a large project either. It's easy enough to just do a little work as you have time, you don't have to do all the translations. If a large group of people all volunteer just a little bit of time each we can make amazing things happen!

Hi:

I'm translating some strings for the Basque language pack. I trust you when you say that the propper place to do it is here: https://www.transifex.com/mbanzi/arduino-ide-15/ (the name looks like I'm working on an old version of the tool).

Could I see somehow the result in my program? I would like to make some screenshots with the menus and dialogs in Basque.

Thanks!

Hi ,

I want to translate arduino programming keywords like digitalWrite , digitalRead etc to my local language .

How can i do this ?

Please give me some leads. in file->preferences my language is not listed.

Thanks for your interest in helping with the translation project!

It's not clear to me what you want to achieve. There are two translation projects:

Arduino IDE strings. This is done on Transifex.
Arduino Language reference (http://www.arduino.cc/reference/en).

If you would like to help with either of those projects, please let me know.

If you mean that you want to be able to translate the names of the functions, etc. used in the actual Arduino code, there is no official Arduino project for doing this. However, you can create your own library, as others have already done. Here's an example:
