Dear community, we’re delighted to announce the launch of the Localization project!
We have started accepting translations for Anytype Desktop. If you have ever dreamt of using Anytype in your native language, now you can contribute, and we will include your translations in upcoming releases.
Please read details about the project and join our Contributors Community: 🌍 Localization Launch · anyproto · Discussion #45 · GitHub
That’s wonderful! I hope to see Anytype in as many languages as possible and also I wish for it to fully support RTL languages so I can personally assist in the Persian translation.
Can non-coders help with translation? I’d like to contribute, if possible, but I couldn’t find any guides in the public webpage.
You can go to Anytype Desktop dashboard in Crowdin, create an account, and join the project to get started with translations
There are instructions inside the project? I haven’t created an account yet because I was trying to see (from the public posts) if it’s something that I can comprehend/access. Thanks, @sambouwer
You don’t need any programming skills for translations in Crowdin. The process is pretty straight forward:
- select your destination language
- select the file “text.json”
- select one word or sentence from the list of english originals on the left
- a) either select one of the suggested versions for your destination language
b) or you translate in your own words
- Submit by clicking the “SAVE” button
Thank you, @philoup! I was expecting something more complicated.
I’d love to contribute for Indonesian (and maybe even Javanese if I can) but I’m afraid I can’t be consistent in contributing… should I make a Crowdin account and do it anyway?
Hello, @Has. Thank you. I’ve enabled both languages for translation. Other people can also join to contribute along with you, so consistency should not be a problem.
Same here, I’d like to contribute to “Romanian” but I don’t see it there? Will it be possible to help me with that please?
Would like to see if I can contribute in Danish. But I don’t see Danish in the list?
I see that individual languages have been mostly translated into native languages but I don’t think that’s comprehensive enough, even though it shows 100% translation it actually isn’t!
For example, type and relations are not translated, especially the built-in immutable types and relations.
And I didn’t find direct identification of the corresponding built-in RELATIONS and TYPE in en-US.json
Will these be added to the translations subsequently, please?
Hey @gaszdf, we’ll launch translation of built-in content (such as types, relations, get-started use-cases, etc.) later, as they are different objects and not connected to the app itself.
In addition, relevant document materials should also be included in the translation plan. (Learning documents, blogs, etc.)
