Hello again dear language fellows!

The new strings are upon us, to be translated by the end-of-Wednesday, 29th November. Click here to get started!

And good news everyone: by popular demand we are aiming to bundle community languages that are 100% translated into official Sailfish OS images and updates: Dutch, Estonian, Greek, Hungarian, Japanese, Korean, and Turkish.
Languages that are now* 99% and will reach completeness during this translation round will also be considered: Chinese (Taiwan), Czech, Portuguese (Brazil), and Slovenian.

Due to some technicalities we are not able to offer these languages via the Jolla Store, all languages will be available on all updated Sailfish OS devices, and the size increase will be minimal.

We are also implementing a "broad" language concept: to group many similar languages under one. That is why you can now see "Spanish (Latin America)" language. This will allow us to add Latin American Spanish locales to Sailfish OS without duplicating the strings (and effort).
So in future the list of languages will contain "Spanish (Argentina), Spanish (Bolivia), ..." -- each of them will share the same localisation strings of "Spanish (Latin America)", however will have their own locale (e.g. Bolivian will have "," as the decimal separator as opposed to "." elsewhere).

* - the percentage of languages' completeness has been checked at 10:00 UTC 2017-11-27, and only after that new 2.1.4 strings have been pushed out.

"Unsupported memory card" Oh no please don't tell us it's the fix for the sd cards kernel issue :/

Is this translation would also mean fixing of text prediction for some non-standard languages? (After each update, I have to fix the .conf by hand).

@Sthocs, this is to address a case when a Sailfish OS device has an SD card inserted with unsupported file system, the only option that you will be presented with is to format it thereafter (previously that functionality was not working properly).

@HeinrichJolla, text prediction is available only for original official languages, as this is a 3rd party offering.

So my Sailfish devices will support me in my efforts to learn some Turkish? Great! :)

It's great that Spanish (Latin America) is added, thank you!

And done for the Czech language.

Languages that are now* 99% and will reach completeness during this translation round will also be considered: Chinese (Taiwan), Czech, Portuguese (Brazil), and Slovenian.

Please take into consideration that due to some untranslatable blank space, languages like Czech could never reach 100%. The Czech language has been on 100% for a long time now, but it always showed 99%. I have complained about this before, but I was told that it is just a quirk Jolla is aware of. I hope it still applies :)

EDIT: The bug now seems fixed. Yay for 100%

Woohoo! :) Was quite a way to get this far with the Czech translation (including a detour via MeeGo), right ? ;-)

Just noticed -- with upgrade from to "Utilities" (sailfish-utilities) lost slovenian translation, everything is in english.

Nice catch thank you! I was able to reproduce this internally, and will provide a fix for you.

sledges ( 2018-04-25 03:14:13 +0200 )edit

It seems that 2.2.0 didn't catch the fix yet.
