Do you mean translations for software developed by Linux Mint for Linux Mint 20? Linux Mint 20 will probably be released mid this year but there is no set release date, or cut-off date for translations. I'd guess if you aim to have translations done somewhere in May it should be in time.

For translations for software components from the Ubuntu LTS 20.04 package base I can't say but would be this month I think as Ubuntu LTS 20.04 is planned for release next month.

Thank you for your reply.
I am sorry that my English is not clear. I am not a native English speaker.

I'm currently putting a translation in the launchpad for cinnamon-desktop-environment, but I'm worried that this activity will be in time for Mint Version 20.
I wanted to know the time limit.It can be approximate.
Maybe in May?

Thank you

Hi,

Ubuntu 20.04LTS released and It's May now.
Linux Mint 20 is scheduled to be released in June.

If anyone knows the specific deadline for translating into LaunchPad for Linux Mint 20, please let me know.
To work hard towards the deadline.

Thank you.

How convenient that you continue to ignore the fact that there is no release date. As always, a Linux Mint release is ready when it's ready.

Be aware that it says this (emphasis mine):
Work continues on Linux Mint 20 “Ulyana” which is planned for June this year.

I will take care of my English word usage.

I don't want to know the Linux Mint 20 release date, but the translation deadline.

I ... want to know ... the translation deadline.
Clearly, if there is no defined release date then there cannot be a deadline.

I fail to see what is so difficult to grasp about that.

There are no developers here. Try the community site: https://community.linuxmint.com/

Thank you for your reply.

The day will come when the translations entered in LanchPad for the Linux Mint packages will be siphoned by the Project team.
That should be reflected in the LM20.
Knowing when it will be the driving force for me to help with translation.

For example, "2 weeks before the release is a guideline for the deadline"
I wonder if that is something I can't even guess?
If so, I will look at the situation. :|

https://github.com/linuxmint/cinnamon-t ... its/master

Translations are synced on the day of release of any new Cinnamon version. You can note from the commit history that for Cinnamon 4.4.x the first 4.4.x tagged release was towards the end of November which was about a week before the 19.3 beta. There were further translation updates part way through the beta, and then another a couple of weeks after stable release. So no deadline as such, but once Cinnamon 4.6.0 is tagged for release (I suspect this will happen in 2 to 3 weeks time) then you are looking at around a month before the stable release of Mint. I suspect the beta for Mint 20 will be longer than for recent releases as it's a new Ubuntu base.

Of course Arch Cinnamon users will appreciate translations being up to date on the initial tagged release of 4.6.x so if you want to help keep them happy aim to get translations up to date in the next couple of weeks and keep your eyes open for new translatable strings over the next few weeks.,
For custom Nemo actions, useful scripts for the Cinnamon desktop, and Cinnamox themes visit my Github pages.

Thank you for your constant helping.
That's nice information.
I'll do my best to translate towards LM20.

PS. I love the themes you proposed previously

New translations are pulled and updated pretty much right up the the release of Mint. And sometimes can even happen after if there is a good reason.
When I give opinions, they are my own. Not necessarily those of any other Linux Mint developer or the Linux Mint project as a whole.

Thank you comment.

New app "Warpinator" which will be installed on LN20 has been listed on LaunchPad translation page.
I expect it to be exactly what you say.

Information feedback

It seems that the translation was pulled at this timing.
