Translations

Adding Languages

To add a new translation, edit the file data/CMakeLists.txt to add the translation file in the form translations/glaxnimate_(code).ts, where (code) is a locale code (eg: en, en_US, ...).

Then run make translations for the file to be generated.

Editing Translations

To edit a translation file, you can open it with Qt Linguist, which should show context information and the string in the GUI when needed.

The translation files are under data/translations.

After a file has been edited, make translations will build the output file and the translation should be available in Glaxnimate settings.

Code

See the README for build instructions.

You can open merge requests on GitLab to get your changes merged into Glaxnimate.
