Translate software descriptions and display in Software Manager

Post by doquyet » Sat Mar 16, 2019 5:00 am

Hi everyone,

I open Software Manager and see all software descriptions are in English. Can I translate them to another language and make Software Manager displays the translated ones?

Thanks for reading :)

Any reason why you cannot just change to another language & then all outputs will be in the new language??

^ this, but also not all packages are localized in all languages, so in that case it will fall back to English (or whatever other fallback language(s) you may have configured).

If not fully localized: jump in to help and apply for membership of the translation team for your language.
