Translating Organize Series
Did you know that Organize Series is ready to be translated? One feature that sometimes goes unnoticed with Organize Series and all the addons is that it is all ready to be localized into other languages. Organize Series is used all over the world and many people have customized it for their own language. Thing is, we know people have translated Organize Series, but have never made an easy way possible for people to share translations. That’s what this page is all about!
It’s taken us a little while to get there but we wanted to make it SUPER easy for anyone to contribute a translation of Organize Series (or any of the addons) in their own language. In the past, in order to translate, you had to have a gettext tool (such as .poedit) and work on the translations on and then save them in a specially named file and then let me know you have a translation. With new releases, you’d have to do it all over again to update any new translations. NOT NOW! We’ve implemented a really cool tool from a project called “GlotPress” and it moves all the translation to an easy to use interface. You dont’ have to worry about ANY files or making sure things are saved properly, we take care of that for you. All you have to do is pick a language and translate strings! You can view the status of all translations by going to http://organizeseries.com/glotpress (It ain’t pretty, but boy does it get the job done).
All we need are a few good people who will help us translate Organize Series and the addon families into their native language. Let’s go global folks! Interested? Here’s how it works:
1. Fill out the handy dandy form at the bottom of this page. If you don’t already have a registered username on Organize Series.com then please get a free account by going here.
2. After submitting the form you will receive an email with brief instructions on how to contribute a translation.
3. From time to time (usually monthly) we’ll take a look at how the translations are going and will reward great translators with something to thank you for your efforts. We haven’t decided what the rewards will be yet, but we like surprising people! More than likely, active translators will at least get a free annual subscription to our Basic Support level.
4. That’s it!
