Translations ? #1
I'm a Sailfish OS user and the fork you made for Unit Converter has already been very useful to me. Many thanks for that !
However, I regret that I have to use it in English. The app is already perfectly usable but would be more comfortable if I could use it in my main language. My question is : are you planning to get through localizations, here on GitHub or Transifex ? If so, I would love to be part of it and finally use Unit Converter in French.
I added a translation file and did a dutch translation of that. The units still remain troublesome. The categories on the main page for example are a reference to other parts of the code, and if you translate them, it breaks.
The common i10n technique for such cases is to uses whatever strings exist internally but substitute them just before presenting to the user. The UI always knows what element is tapped or ativated, so its human label is not relevant. Why could it not be implemented here?
