How to translate Kdenlive

Since november 2011, Kdenlive has moved to the KDE infrastructure. It means that all our translations are now managed by the KDE translation teams. If you want to help translating Kdenlive in your language, the first thing to do is to get in touch with the KDE localization team: http://i18n.kde.org/

There is a team for each language and you can get infos here.

After that, we recommand using the Lokalize tool which was designed to make KDE translations easier. Here is a quick howto, but please Don't forget to contact the translation team for your language so that the work is not done twice.

  • In Lokalize, go to Project > New project wizard. Select "Translate application interface" as in the screenshot

  • Select "Get from svn repository" and chose your language, then the folder where the translation files will be downloaded, as in screenshot. This will download all translation files for KDE and is rather big (about 20Mb).

  • After a few minutes (be patient - it takes a while after downloading to build indexes), you will see the different translations appear, and can select Kdenlive which is in Messages > extragear-multimedia

  • You can then start translating, and send your work back to the translation team

If you have questions, you can always contect the Kdenlive developers on the Kdenlive mailing list
