QCAD User Interface Translations

Postby andrew » Mon Feb 10, 2014 4:35 pm

To support contributors who are intending to help with translating the QCAD user interface, I've set up a translation server at:
translate.qcad.org

Once registered, as a translator, you can start translating individual texts of the QCAD user interface. Any contribution is most valued!

Please let me know if you would like to see other languages added to the list.

The English and the German translations are usually updated by me for every new release.

I'm also maintaining the French, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese translations mainly based on machine translations but I'm happy for corrections and suggestions from native speakers.

Thanks!
Andrew

Hello
I just made ready for the first version of finnish translation. It might have bugs or ridiculous translations, but it can be chanced later on...
I hope it will be useful for others with my language

Best regards from a cold snowy country

Hi,
I would like to help translating QCAD to Croatian (Hrvatski) language. Could you add it to a list of languages.
Thanks, bye

Thanks for your offer to help!
I've added Croation (code hr) to the translation server at:
http://translate.qcad.org/hr/

It's also possible to translate offline by checking out sources from github:
https://github.com/qcad/qcad

Please let me know if you need any help to get started!

Can I make a few corrections to the French translation?
Albeit correct, a few sentences seem to be "Google-translated" --no offenses here, of course.
Do I simply need to get there (http://translate.qcad.org/fr/) ans start making corrections?

Absolutely, that would be greatly appreciated indeed.

Non taken. All tier 2 translations (Dutch, French, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish) are essentially automatic translations.

Yes, that's the best way for us to have users submit corrections. But you can also just post individual errors here or pm them to me if you prefer.
In any case: thank you for any help you can offer in improving the French user interface quality.

Polish translation for QCAD/CAM

Postby psokol » Sat Jan 13, 2018 9:09 am

Hi, I've spent some time on translating QCAD interface in Polish language. Translation is almost finished and I would like to help with QCAD/CAM. I have great experience with CAM software, so I believe I can handle that. Can you add Polish translation in pootle for me?
I always try to support open source software I use, but what about translations licensing of proprietary libraries? Are they GPL?
Is there any possibility to get software license for translating purposes? Working with trial version is really a pain in a**.

I've added Polish translation files and updated the Pootle database accordingly.

No, these translations are proprietary like the software itself. I will make you an offer for a payed translation of QCAD Professional and QCAD/CAM by private message.

Yes, I will send you information about this via private message as well.
