Create Translations

You can use an editor such as poedit to assist in translations. This guide will assume that you will be using poedit.

This guide will refer to language designation. This can be found from running echo $LANG on your pi, as long as you have set your pi up for your preferred language.

New Language

  • Select Create a new translation or File -> New from POT/PO and select ks_includes/locals/KlipperScreen.pot.
  • Enter your language designation.
  • Create the translations
  • Save the file as ks_includes/locales/{LANGUAGE DESIGNATION}/KlipperScreen.po.
  • Select File -> Compile to MO. Save this file as ks_includes/locales/{LANGUAGE DESIGNATION}/

Once you have followed those steps, restart KlipperScreen, and select it from the list in the settings. If you edited and recompiled, you need to restart KlipperScreen to reload the translation.

Do not edit the POT file as is automatically generated and your changes will be lost. Attach your translation on a GitHub issue or create a PR
