Translations for Cloudron
Created this thread to gather translation related comments.
@girish I'd be happy to help with the french translation, if it can help accelerate things
We will invite everyone to help translate. Between @girish and me we only really speak English and German, so we take that as the proof of concept languages and once the majority of strings is settled for now, we will open up for others

We are not ready yet to accept external translations, they are being built up at https://translate.cloudron.io/projects/cloudron/dashboard/ but at the moment I am still not 100% sure about the format and all, so there is a chance of wasted time
@nebulon I just spent a few minutes giving suggestions for most strings in french. If it ends up being wasted, so be it

@nebulon if you can add Dutch/Nederlands I will provide the translations for that
I could help with Spanish if you're interested.
When this is ready I can contribute Hebrew translations if we plan to support RTL languages!
I've submitted several suggestions for the Italian translation - is that an okay way to go or should I stop doing that for a bit?
I would prefer to still hold off a bit on suggestions as I am still building up those translation keys and thus I won't accept them yet. Once this stabilizes I am an not sure if it would then make sense to open up registration for our weblate instance so we can have a non anonymous discussion on translation strings, which I would prefer.

Thank you for this work. When it will be stabilized, I will be available to contribute to the French translation.
Just wanted to mention how much I love the fact that even before being 100% ready to process contributed translations that we've got commitments on at least 5 languages! That's awesome. It would be good perhaps for those of us that use the product and can contribute any translation to set some goals for completing those that we can get started. So by my count so far, we've got people ready to work on:
nl(not in weblate yet)
es(not in weblate yet)
he(not in weblate yet, RTL)
Big ones there are definitely going to be easy to complete look like
fr, which, considering
enis already in the mix, probably covers at least one language of most of our user base. I wonder if we could dig up some folks to tackle any of
arsince those would all be potentially valuable places to have native-language support, with large populations and well-developed internet access. I am uniquely un-qualified to work any of those, however.
Couple useful resources/citations on expansion:
- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_languages_by_total_number_of_speakers (somewhat better than above; includes portions of that data as well)

@nebulon I can give a hand on French, Portuguese
This is a good point about the languages we want to support. From our side we can only do English and German and parts Italian. My leftover French from school is probably not gonna help much
Currently there are about 900 strings to translate, quite a few are the same, but we kept the translation IDs distinct for the future, weblate should propose translations though if similar.
From what I can tell here, there are enough people willing to help on the French, Dutch and maybe Spanish (either way I think Spanish is very important) translation, so the list currently is:
- English (en)
- German (de)
- French (fr)
- Italian (it)
- Spanish (es)
- Dutch (nl)
Please speak up here if you want to help out in any other language and I will update the above list.

@eriktad perhaps something we could seed populate for all languages with our translation engine? (900 words wouldn't cost anything)

Edit: I've modified the link below as it seems the embedded is being blocked
If your language is not listed there, you can add it in the "other" field. If there's a need I'll update the list with new languages.
The data can be shared publicly to give an idea of %'s of languages spoken.
@ei8fdb I seem to be getting a :Page Not Found" in the iframe there?
@ei8fdb I installed the poll plugin on this forum for you if you want to give it a try (make a separate post somwhere). This is the plugin I installed - https://github.com/NodeBB/nodebb-plugin-poll . There is a button in the new post dialog (looks like a graph), if you click it, it brings up a poll window.
