language support

Hello all,
I want to translate all menus and messages into Chinese language.
Are language files available? How to use in different languages?

We do use the tr() method for most visible UI text.

But no translation effort beyond that have been put in place yet. Feel free to give it a go.

Yes, we can do that. But we dont know which files to translate and how to compile. If you indicate us, which files to make and compile the source instead of us afterwards we can do the Chinese translation as volunteer.

In the meantime, I gave it a quick go and it turns out that there is a lot of work before we can even consider the actual translations of string.

Thank you for information. Do you have some plans to make the messages translateable. If yes, when do you plan it ?

This will require funding. Does that sounds like something you would be interested to provide ?

We are ready to do the Chinese translation free-of-charge in the form of our free contribution. This can be later added into the software. Thank you.

As I said before, there is a needed initial funding for this, before we can start letting people translate the software.

I understand. So in this case, how much will be the funding ? Can you please tell.
