Translations are part of our ARK Development and Security Bounty Program.

Full translations are considered to be Tier 3, while grammar fixes, typos, etc. are considered to be Tier 6.

Full translations should involve 5 tasks

  • Create a pull request for the language you are going to translate. If you have doubts about something, use English to explain them.
  • Translate the textual content of the application, using the English language file as the reference. To do that, a new file, with the language locale code should be created. The name of the file should be a valid RFC 5646 and should be located at src/renderer/i18n/locales/LANGUAGE.js. Thanks to vue-i18n-extract, it is possible to execute yarn i18n src/renderer/i18n/locales/LANGUAGE.js to find suggestions of missing translations.
  • Add the language to the English language file at the LANGUAGES key.
  • Update the date and time formats file to include the short and long format that are used commonly by native speakers.
  • Update the number formats file to include the preferred way of displaying currencies used commonly by native speakers.
  • Add the language at the I18N.enabledLocales array at the main configuration file. This step is necessary to make the language would not be available.
  • Execute the application. Go to the development section to learn how to install the requirements and execute it.
