You can help us to translate the MusE interface into your language. We currently have a English interface and basic German support. Note: This means that the interface will be translated not the official manual nor this weppage.
You find instruction in the source tar ball in the file called README.translate or here on this page. If your translation is finished send your translation to our mailing list.
Currently included translations are (atleast):
fr french de German ru russian sv_SE swedish es Spanish pl Polish
If you want to contribute a translation the following hints may be of help to you:
If you want to update an existing translation, skip to step 2.
If you want to do a new translation, start with creating an empty translation file:
If you want to update an existing translation and you downloaded a stable release (not a snapshot) of MusE, skip to step 3.
Populate your .ts file with the newest strings
mkdir build cd build cmake -DUPDATE_TRANSLATIONS=ON .. make translations cmake -DUPDATE_TRANSLATIONS=OFF .. cd ..
Your file share/locale/muse_fr.ts is now ready for translation. It is recommended that you copy this file to some other place and and work on the copy.
Edit "muse_fr.ts" manually or use the Qt "linguist" tool:
Save the edited file "muse_fr.ts" from linguist and start File->Release. This generates the file "muse_fr.qm". Copy this file into your muse installation folder, <prefix>/share/muse-2.0/locale/ or copy your edited "muse_fr.ts" into share/locale in the source tree and rebuild/install muse
cd build cmake -DUPDATE_TRANSLATIONS=OFF .. make sudo make install
Test: If your system locale is set to the same language as your translation, simply start MusE:
Otherwise, start MusE with the desired locale using the -l flag
muse2 -l fr
Thanks for your support!
