Connecting developers with people that speak a different language and would like to help translating the GUI of an application used to be quite a hassle. Translators had to download and edit so-called “catkeys” text files and upload them again somewhere.
Developers had to manage all those xx.catkeys for different languages which made changing or adding text in the GUI a drag, especially when the number of translations grew…
After a failed attempt to use Haiku’s Pootle site for that, we have now a shiny new, nicely working tool for it:
Kacper Kasper’s Polyglot.
It’s already working perfectly well, though it’s still being improved and polished. You’ll need a GitHub account to log in at this time.
Contact me via PM or email to get the necessary permissions.
Go there now, have a look at the help page and start translating!
