Localistion support (foreign languages)

Post by VK3KYY » Thu Nov 28, 2019 10:37 am

Guys

I've just pushed new source code for the developers that will support multiple languages via a "Language" menu

This is not 100% complete yet, but for those who would like to translate to another language, this is the data structure

The text in quotes e.g. "English" or "Battery" etc is the text that should be translated
Text like %s %d %c etc are special characters for substitution with other texts and numbers etc so should not be changed

The width of the screen is normally 16 characters, so menu names etc can not be longer than that.

Some texts need to be shorter e.g. "Rx only" as this is part of the Channel details screen.

I have not had time to work out the maximum length of every text, but if you look at the existing user interface it is not difficult to calculate how many characters will fit in each location.

Note 1. I have not yet translated some things on the Channel Details screen for CTCSS frequency, or the DMR Filtering settings

However it is probably 90% of the total texts used in the radio.

Note 2. The CPS screen messages are sent from the CPS and I will need to handle those by changes to the CPS.

Code: Select all

Hi,

I'm working on that too. Fonts will be updated as well.

Cheers.

Quick question. When pushing a new language, do you want us to ask for a pull request on the github repository or do you prefer that it's sent as an attachment through this forum?

Thanks

I will include those languages and produce a test version

Note. Until the font is updated, the accented characters will render as a question mark.

So either I change them to an unaccented character
