WebODM Translation Thread - [Help Us Translate?]

:partying_face: Let’s translate WebODM to as many languages as we can! https://hosted.weblate.org/engage/webodm/

To add a new translation:


I’ve opened a PR to get WebODM properly translated and localized: https://github.com/OpenDroneMap/WebODM/pull/943

I’ve also started exporting the first batch of strings, which can already be translated from https://hosted.weblate.org/projects/webodm/ :clinking_glasses:

I’ve added a few languages to the list. If you want to add yours, just post here.

If context is missing or a translation is unclear/ambiguous, please also ask! We can add “context” messages to the strings which can help understand the context, but I’m sometimes unsure where additional context information is beneficial.

I also hope I don’t break anything as I update the language files and more strings are added to the list, I’ve never used weblate so this is going to be a fun learning experience… :pray:

That’s awesome!

See https://hosted.weblate.org/languages/tr/webodm/

You can click the a component, then press “Translate”. You will need to be logged-in if you want to save a translation (anonymous users can suggest a translation).

Hmm, I seem to only be able to suggest, even though I’ve linked my GitHub to my Weblate account, and I’ve added a password to secure it, as per Weblate recommendation.

Ah well.

Mm, strange. Try to ping the weblate people: https://weblate.org/en/support/ the settings on the weblate site are wide open. Do other people have the same issue?

“This translation only accepts suggestions, and these are approved by voting.”

That’s the message on every ES translation when I hover over the “Save” button.

Permissions thing in the project?

The Spanish translation is ready for now.

Thanks for taking over for Spanish! It was going to take me ages, and I’m not a native speaker!
You cleaned house on that in like, minutes!

I’m working on italian but thinking if leaving some key concepts in english, some are the way to name things without words workarounds and give a common knowledge base…will see, I’ve still to figure out how to see the results

Hey @upa, you can now preview the results by following the instructions on https://github.com/OpenDroneMap/WebODM#translations (update WebODM to 1.7.0, start WebODM with the --dev flag, then press the button from new the Developer Tools panel). 1.7.0 already contains the strings you’ve added so far, so this is a way to preview new ones that are added to weblate before an official release. :+1:

I have a few years of Mandarin Chinese experience and would love to contribute if that is seen as a need.
