Final touches for Arduino IDE 2.0 – Translators wanted for language packs

The new version 2 of the Arduino IDE is almost ready, but some translations are still missing. The development team is therefore looking for people who can provide non-European translations in particular. The Transiflex program should also be used for this purpose.

According to the developers, these language packs are almost completely translated:

  • Chinese
  • Dutch
  • French
  • German
  • Japanese
  • Turkish

are wanted now translators for European languages ​​like Portuguese or Hungarian, and more distant languages ​​like Afrikaans or Nepali. The translations are done using the online tool transit flexon whose website you can also find a list of the languages ​​you are looking for.

On Transiflex you can get the list of languages ​​you are looking for.

If you want to work, you have to register and log in there: the first 14 days of Transiflex access are free. That should be enough for translating the menu and message texts. Please note: In order to check and use the new language versions, the latest version of the Arduino IDE (currently 2.0.0-rc7) should be installed.

As with the previous version, the language setting is made under Preferences in the File menu. There are instructions for doing this Video.
