Dutch localization

Post by Tuvok » Thu 10 Jul, 2014 08:15

Hello,

I am using FarManager for a few weeks now and it is a rich application and very fast.
Is FarManager development still active and can we expect a major upgrade in the near future?

If so, I like to translate it to Dutch. I have some years of experience in translating applications for multiple platforms.

Regards,
Tuvok

Here is changelog.
Almost everyday you get fresh build.
Development is gradual, and I do not know what do you expect from 'major' upgrage.

I refer to the development and implementation of new ideas and features as a major upgrade instead of bugfix releases.
Can you give me some information how I can help to localize Far Manager to Dutch?

Feel free to post your ideas about new features (in separate forum topics).

Go to farmanager.com's English-language start page, follow the “open source” link atop and you'll find the link to the sources there.

The language files are generated from farlang.templ.m4. You can add a language to this file.
Alternatively, you can download the latest nightly build of Far Manager, translate FarEng.lng - then we can incorporate the translation into farlang.templ.m4 (we have a utility for that).

He is about to do a very hard work and I think any help I can do won't be redundant.
