How to select a supported language

Lua Telemetry uses the OpenTX settings for multilingual support. If language voice files or language translation file doesn't exist, Lua Telemetry will default to English.

  • To change the voice prompts you set the Voice Language setting on the RADIO SETUP menu. You'll need to cycle power to your transmitter for Lua Telemetry to see the change.

  • For the flight modes and config menu translation, you need to be running OpenTX firmware with the desired Menu Language. From the OpenTX Companion:

  1. Go to Settings (the gear icon)
  2. Select the desired Menu Language
  3. Download firmware
  4. Write firmware to radio.

Adding new language

To add support for one of the above languages, follow these steps:

  1. Language voice files need to be created. Here's is a list of the 32 voice files required
  2. A lang_XX.lua language translation file needs to be created. Here's an example of the German translation file: lang_de.lua (note the maximum character length comments)

The voice and translation files can be submitted in a PR or you can create a feature request issue and attach the files and I'll take care of it. Either way, be prepared to possibly do some tweaking if the translation lengths are too long.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
