MyPaint supports 30 languages at the time of writing. This excludes different spellings of English. Not every language is complete, but you can help us improve.
Translating the text that gets displayed on the screen is now much easier than before. Anyone who uses MyPaint regularly and has good language skills can help:
- Work on translations in MyPaint's project pages on WebLate.
- Read a brief tutorial describing how MyPaint gets translated: http://mypaint.org/blog/2015/11/21/final-translation-push-for-1-2-0/
- Our wiki documentation needs translating too: see Writing Documentation for details of how you can help.
In the run-up to a release, translations are frozen to give translators a chance to work on a consistent base text. The translation README details the complete workflow in detail: po/README.md.
We use GNU gettext for i18n, and the language used in the source code is US English.
