A Launchpad translation project has been setup: Click here to view a list of all currently available translations. Very briefly, Launchpad will enable a community of translators to help translate the plugin into whatever language is needed.

How to translate with Launchpad

  1. Setup a Launchpad.net account.
  2. Select your preferred languages. This will be the language you want to translate.
  3. You should see your language show up in this list. Simply click the name to get started with the translations. The system will try to offer suggests where available (retrieved from other open source projects).
  4. Your translations are saved as you proceed. When it comes time to package a release, your translation will be automatically included in the release for everyone to use. Thanks for your help!
