Mint 10 translations

Written by Clem on Sunday, October 31st, 2010 @ 8:30 am | Main Topics

Just a quick note about the translations. We’re getting close to a stable release for Linux Mint 10.

Make sure the system is fully translated in your language by visiting this page:

Note: Don’t worry about the mention of “isadora” in the URL, we kept the translations on the same branch as Mint 9 to avoid wasting valuable time with Launchpad.

    great job can’t wait

  2. kushal says:

    Is there dvd edition like isadora

  3. Imhoteps says:

    What about Julia KDE?

  4. Hezy says:

    Clem, once my translation is done, what is the best way to test it? Some aspects of the Hebrew translation are not trivial, due to direction issues. Hebrew, as well as Arabic, are written right to left. This is critical when Hebrew is mixed with English words (which happens very frequently in software), and when there are variables (%s %d etc).

  5. Clem says:

    Hezy: Assuming you’ve compiled your .po file into .mo and put it in the right place (“apt content mint-translations” will list these for you), you can call any app using any locale… for instance, to call mintupdate in spanish: “LANG=es mintupdate”

  6. Imhoteps says:

    And what about Mint 11? Will Main edition will use Unity after 11.04?

  7. twodogs says:

    hey Imhoteps, why ask about KDE and especially Mint 11/Unity when Mint 10 final isn’t even available yet? Clem and crew are working very hard to get us the good stuff and they need translations. Unfortunately, your two irrelevant posts are, well, irrelevant. Leave ’em alone.

  8. Silent Warrior says:

    There, suggested translations for just about everything left in Swedish. Now I’ll bugger off to a rehearsal. Ten cheers!

  9. Imhoteps says:

    Those posts were just a couple of questions (I agree – offtopic a bit). Ya know, I know that guys work hard, but I dont think that those questions of mine made their work harder after reading them.
    Galaxy is not in danger, twodogs. Relax.

  10. Warren says:

    Screw the translations. They only slow things down and worse they help forners. This isn’t /. so I’ll say–just kidding. Keep up the good work. I like what I see coming.

  11. Hezy says:

    I’ve just finished all the Hebrew translation in launchpad, but I decided to do one file (live-installer) on my desktop with poedit. It was much nicer than the launchpad web interface. Anyway, now someone (who?) needs to import it:

  12. Сергей says:

    Хорошая работа ребята! Ждем финальный релиз!

  13. Sergio says:

    Hezy, you put the translations in /usr/share/linuxmint/locale/he/

    To upload the translation to launchpad, login to launchpad, click on the live-installer translation for Hebrew and you’ll get a link “Upload translation”.

  14. BK Singh says:

    What about Hindi Translations? Is it going to get better in Mint 10? We are very hopeful of the same. Bollywood is promoting Hindi worldwide. But when it comes to computing only a handful of Indians are using Hindi. But Linux can definitely do wonders in Hindi.

  15. diego says:

    release final version of mint 10 today plz! Thanks!

  16. kneekoo says:

    Thanks for the note, Clem! 🙂 The Romanian translation is now fully reviewed.

  17. tridentcore says:

    well… can’t wait for the Julia… english language is no problem for me even I’m from Indonesia…

    this week? or next week? Juliaaaaaaaaaaa….

  18. Eon says:

    Korean translation is done. (though it needs to be reviewed.)
    Ah, I can’t wait to see the new release! xD

  19. World of Basketball says:

    Hi guys,

    looking forward for new Mint 10. I will also help as much as I can with translations. Keep up a good work.

  20. perplex says:

    mmm, will mint fix the choppy video issues that are aflicting ubuntu 10.10?

  21. Csaba Mészáros says:

    Please don’t use the 2.6.35 kernel. It’s buggy.

  22. Andy DCH says:

    still waiting for final release… 🙁

    (Indonesian too 🙂 )

  23. Ancarelli says:

    I agree with Csaba Mészáros – Please don’t use the 2.6.35 kernel. It’s buggy.. My wifi do not work

  24. Ancarelli says:

    I hope that Linux Mint 10 stable my wifi works

  25. Ancarelli says:

    Uso o linux Mint desde o RC 4 e nunca tive problemas com o hardware, mas com o Linux Mint 10 meu wifi não funciona. Já fiz de tudo, mas não consegui fazer funcionar

  26. val007 says:

    still waiting for final release

  27. Hezy says:

    Clem, I still have a problem testing some of the apps that are running only in during the install (mintinstall and the slideshows).

    Another point: mintwellcome and the slideshows seem to render Hebrew text as left-to-right rather than right-to-left. In most cases it only leads to the text being aligned to the left – not very professional looking, but still readable. the problem becomes critical when an English word is used in a Hebrew text – then the structure of the paragraph is messed up completely. This is evident whenever the name “Linux Mint” is used 🙁

  28. IsaoHK says:

    I know this is not the correct place but…
    Regarding the future of Linux Mint,
    I wonder which desktop shell it is going to support, GNOME Shell or Ubuntu’s Unity?
    I dislike surprise from Mark’s guy like that Unity.
    Please stick with Gnome!

  29. valoo7 says:

    hi!!! anyone knows the date of final version? thanks

  30. Grambler says:

    I would like to see a KDE version of Linux Mint 10

  31. Toni says:

    It would be nice, if there is a DVD that contains Gnome and KDE like openSuse-DVD does. So everybody can choose his favourite, !after trying out!, without burning 2 CDs/DVDs.

  32. Diego says:

    What happend with the final release? It’s not out yet!

  33. Rob says:

  34. cvd13 says:

    Как ли ще изглежда финалната версия?

  35. Vivo says:

    The final build has been done.
    It is only a matter of hours before it is released.

    The Bulgarian localization is now full. Thanks to all those that contributed to the translations.
