About translation

Post by blueace »

Hi

New here, I would like to understand how the process works for translations.

First, I proposed some modifications on "crowdin", but then...

- How can I know if my proposals are accepted?

- When will the modifications be available?

- Is it possible to get just the mmex.mo file before an official new SW release ?

- Is it possible to locally (on my PC) edit the mmex.mo file ?

Regards

When will the modifications be available?
New translations are pulled into the public beta throughout our development cycle, usually every 1-2 weeks. You can check when the last pull was merged by going to https://github.com/moneymanagerex/moneymanagerex and looking at when the po folder was last changed:

Is it possible to get just the mmex.mo file before an official new SW release ?
Absolutely. Download the portable beta from https://ci.appveyor.com/project/whalley/moneymanagerex by clicking on your platform, then the "Artifacts" tab and selecting the portable zip file:

then extract the .mo files (found in folders like moneymanagerex/bin/<locale code>/mmex.mo)
Is it possible to locally (on my PC) edit the mmex.mo file ?
You wouldn't edit the mmex.mo file directly. You would instead edit the locale-specific .po file from here https://github.com/moneymanagerex/money ... /master/po, then compile the .po file to a .mo file using a tool like POEdit https://poedit.net/. However, if you are translating I would encourage you to also submit your translations on Crowdin to help the project!
