Thanks for helping translate Mudlet to your language! Mudlet is a free, open-source project and helping it speak your language means a lot to us. :)

How to start?

  • Go to Mudlet on Crowdin
  • Select the language you'd like to translate.
  • Log in
  • Select development - translations - mudlet.ts
Mudlet-translation-file.png
  • Start translating!

What happens then?

Currently, we are still working on this. It is not yet possible to run Mudlet with the new translations. Your translation is gladly collected as preparation to use as soon as the technology is ready. This way, we can immediately distribute Mudlet with multiple languages available.

How to get a gold star?

Translating a language above 95% will earn it a gold star.

in this example, the bar is at 30%, but real Mudlet has it at 95%

Suggested settings in Crowdin

  • In options, hide html code, so it will display shortened as <1> and </1> for example.
  • Click Context to always display information on where the current string is used exactly. Sometimes you can even see screenshots here for comparison.

Other translations needed?

Below the file mentioned above, you can find more content from Mudlet website and wiki. For example, international users want to read new release notes or documentation for specific Mudlet functionality, at best in their own language.

How to coordinate?

A simple chat functionality exists in Crowdin: You can comment on each text seperately. This way, you can also give feedback to Mudlet developers.

However, if you want to coordinate more thoroughly, please feel free to join us on Discord or in Mudlet's international forum. Doing that, you can easily establish a more permanent contact with other translators and continue from there.
