How to internationalize Cinnamon

Postby rodvitner on Thu May 24, 2012 6:10 am

Took me some time to figure out this. Perhaps it will help others. To edit the menu items in Cinnamon is easy. Just right-click on the menu icon and do the changes you want. But still you can't edit "All applcations" and "Places" to your own language.

To do this you can open this file: usr/share/cinnamon/applets/menu@cinnamon.org/applet.js. Search for "All applications" and "Places" (with the marks) and replaces them with whatever you want. Don't forget the " .Done!

Still I haven't figured out how to replace "Preferences" in the menu with something else. Any ideas?

[Edit] your original post and add [SOLVED] once your question is resolved.

“The people are my God” stressing the factor determining man’s destiny lies within man not in anything outside man, and thereby defining man as the dominator and remoulder of the world.

You'd better help translating Cinnamon as well, instead of editing only your own cinnamon: https://translations.launchpad.net/linu ... s/cinnamon

Feel free to correct me if I'm trying to write in Spanish, French or German.

Yes, the menu categories sometimes don't get translated, that's a bug in Cinnamon: #643
