Adding missing translations

The list of all English strings can be found in en.ts. If there are translations missing for your language and you'd like to help with the translation, you can add the translated strings to your language's file in src/main/i18n/translations and submit a PR.

Adding a new language

If the app isn't translated into your language yet and you'd like to help out, you can easily add translations with the following steps:

  1. The translation files can be found in src/main/i18n/translations. Duplicate the en.ts file as [LANG].ts, where [LANG] is the shortcode of your language.
  2. In the file you just created, replace the English translations with your own.
  3. Import your file in the ALL_TRANSLATIONS object in src/main/i18n/i18n.ts.
  4. Add your language shortcode to the electronLanguages array in package.json.
  5. Run the app in your language (see the steps above) and make sure that the translations fit into the app (e.g. that they aren't too long for input fields).
  6. Submit a PR. Thanks for your help!
