Cloudron supports translation of the dashboard and transactional emails like the Welcome email and Password reset.
Cloudron supports the following languages:
- Chinese (Simplified)
Translations into other languages are work in progress and we are happy to accept contributions from the community.
Translations are maintained in a Weblate instance at https://translate.cloudron.io.
All translations are public and interested users can view translated strings.
If users want to contribute please send us an email to email@example.com with the intended
username and language to contribute to and we will send you an invite.
To ensure consistency across the translated terms and have a way to make decisions on proposed translations, we are looking for one maintainer for each language. The Cloudron team itself only natively speaks English and German, so for any other language we will rely on community members. In case you want to help us maintain a language, please first reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org for a Weblate account and we can grant you permissions to maintain the corresponding language.
cloudron-translate-update CLI tool fetches and updates translations from Weblate. This tool is already installed on Cloudron.
The following command will download translation files for all languages and updates those in the Cloudron installation:
Once you have run the command, visit the Cloudron dashboard and reload the page. New languages can be activated immediately from the profile or settings view.
Adding or improving individual translation strings all happens inside Weblate. If a translation in a language is missing, one can search for the English string in Weblate and it will show all languages with the current existing or non-existing translation. Simply propose a translation in the tool and the language maintainer will accept it. Once accepted, it can be tested as explained in the previous section.
In case a previously used translation string is not in use in upcoming releases anymore, it will have the
Deprecated label set in Weblate.
Such strings do not need to be furher maintained and will eventually be fully purged from Weblate.
