How to help translate WP-United

Translating WP-United is easy — you can do it online! What better way to help the project and also help out other users that share your native tongue?

To get started, visit the WP-United Translation Page on Launchpad.net.

If you don’t have a Launchpad.net account, then register using the link in the top right. Once you are logged in, you will see a list of translations, with links to “View all languages” and “Choose preferred language”. “View all languages” will only show languages that are currently already translated to, or are in the process of being translated.

To select your language, set your preferred language. Then the language will appear in the list. Then click on the language to begin translating.

You will be presented with screens of text, which you can translate. If other software on Launchpad has similar language content, suggestions will be provided for you to approve. You don’t have to translate it all in one sitting — just do what you can. You can save at any time and exit.

Feel free to hop in and finish any partial translations too.

The translatable strings are all pulled from the latest version of WP-United currently in development.

When the translation is completed, drop me a line, and I will update the WP-United release package with your translation. Let me know how you would like to be credited in the file.

Please note that Launchpad.net requires you to release your translation text under the BSD license — this is so that other software can use any relevant translations too. So by translating, you are helping a whole ecosystem of projects.

WP-United is obviously fairly fast-moving at the moment, so occasionally new translatable items are added. However I try to keep these to a minimum. So if you are interested, please do occasionally check back to the Launchpad translation page to see if there are any new items for translation — then they can be included in future releases.

If you have any questions about translation, please post here.

Thank you very much in advance! A big thanks also again to way2vet, who has already provided a German translation.

    That’s awesome, thank you very much.

    Actually, I believe someone has recently e-mailed me a fairly complete Serbian translation, but I have been so busy that I haven’t had the chance to do anything with it. If you hold on, I’ll try to include it tonight…
