Looking for MX translators

We have begun working on internationalization for the native applications, and will be looking to get the translations filled out and/or brought up to date (especially the Installer). These applications include not only the ones we have been developing for this version/release, but also legacy items such as the MEPIS/antiX Installer.

1. MX-muser. The text strings are posted online here:

https://www.transifex.com/projects/p/an ... user_ents/

2. MX-minstall. The text strings are posted online here:

https://www.transifex.com/projects/p/an ... tall_ents/

3. MX-codecs. The text strings are posted online here:

https://www.transifex.com/projects/p/an ... decs_ents/

---------------------------

It is free to participate, but you do need to register to be able to view, work on, or download the strings.

Time is starting to get short now, so anyone who has time to help would be greatly welcome!

Provisional deadline: end of February.

Thanks!

Just joined for the Dutch team.

Now I have NO idea what the protocol is on this one, I see that I can translate things, or adjust if need be to some better form of the Dutch language, but can I just DO that?

Or does stuff get assigned?

Great--you're good to go! Others may try to improve some aspects, and sometimes there are multiple possible translations (dialects, alternatives, etc.), but it usually works out AFAIK. anti is our guide here as he has a lot of experience through antiX.

Feel free to make changes to existing translations. Write what you think a native speaker would understand eg if OK is OK use OK!

OK, will do that! :thumbup:


Hopefully I can make a dent in things so to speak. Starting out translating things that have not been translated yet though.

Why/how are the completion levels going up each time I look? Is the software filling in from other sources or something?

I'm uploading/adding what we already have in antiX.
