Help translate ParaView into your language!

Following some long time effort [1], ParaView can now be translated !

You can now register on the dedicated web platform [2] to provide translations for ParaView. A nice tutorial was published to get started [3], including currently supported languages.

Then, on a weekly basis, translations are bundled with the ParaView official binaries [4]. Just tweak the Interface Language settings to try the last nightly in french ! (initial, partial support at the time of writing)

Technical info

We ends up with a full workflow [5] including a dedicated repository for translations, filled by weblate and used by the paraview superbuild. This also includes new guidelines for developers to ensure that every displayed string can be translated.

You can’t make suggestions on Weblate without registering, so I will make one here.

Google translate provides an API which could be used to automatically provide a first cut for many language files. It performs remarkably well and it would make the job a whole lot quicker for human translators to simply amend any faults.
