Translations for the minetest game

by Yvanhoe » Post

Hi,

I am not sure what is the status of the internationalization of the default minetest game, but I just needed a version with as much things translated in Japanese for next week, so I merged Zweihorn's pull request after a rebase, downloaded the latest .po files from the weblate repo (https://hosted.weblate.org/git/minetest/mtg_i18n), made a script to translate the .po in .tr and pushed all that on mesehub:

https://git.minetest.land/yvanhoe/minetest_game

I tested the Japanese and French translation, ~80% of it seems ok. I am not sure this is the recommended workflow, but there it is in case someone is interested as well.

It has been merged! It also received a lot of good criticism, I'll try to fix them some time this week end or next week, depending on how quick the area I live gets power restored >_<.

Yes, Minetest Game is now officially translatable!

A German translation has also been added.

Please note that the string freeze is not in effect yet. So be aware that if you start translating Minetest Game, it will likely become outdated before release. Please be aware of that. That doesn't mean you can't already start translating now. But it means that if you aim for a 100% translation, you will likely need to update a few strings again when the string freeze is announced. If you don't do that, the coverage will likely drop from 100% to, like, 98% or so.

Although my German translation was merged a few days ago, it's already outdated, which does not surprise me. Therefore, I plan to update the German translation as soon the string freeze is announced.
