Translating

Translations #

Translating Homechart is an ongoing process. You can help us out by updating or adding translations or contacting support with the language you want or corrected translations.

Updating or Adding Translations #

Homechart generates translations from the translations.yaml file. It’s a big file, but it lets you see everything there is to translate in Homechart.

Syntax #

The syntax for the file is easy to understand:

defaultcode: en # English is the default/fallback language
iso639codes: # A list of the ISO-639 codes and the display name for them
  de: Deutsch
  en: English
translations: # A list of translation objects.  The objects contain context and a translation for each of the iso639codes
  EmailEmailAddressChangeConfirmationSubject:
    context: Subject for email address changes
    de: '[Aktion erforderlich] Best├Ątigen Sie Ihre aktualisierte E-Mail-Adresse'
    en: |
            [Action Required] Verify Your Updated Email Address

Adding a new language #

To add a new language, please contact us. You can add it to the translations.yaml, but we have tooling that can generate the translations first and then have you review them.

Updating translations #

You can update the translations if you notice something in Homechart that isn’t translated correctly. Checkout this git repo and open a pull request with your changes. You should be able to search the document to find the original translation.
