How to Use?
Some projects are already available. All you need to do is to open the
menu and select your project from there. If your project is not available, you
can still create a new project with name, a language and a translation system.
The translation system is one of the following methods of sending your work to upstream:
Currently Supported Platforms
Transifex only allows us to translate files in their original formats, so we only support transifex projects for which we support the format. See the following section for more info on supported formats.
Gitlab is a free source code forge designed for developpers, not translators. It is used by developpers to keep their sources together, and this is where translations ultimately go (unless developpers use a different forge). Using gitlab or any other forge is a last resort when the developpers do not use a platform already. Make sure you visite their repository and project page to learn about their prefered translation workflow.
As with Transifex, the Gitlab system can only get translation files in their original format, so the system is limited to formats supported by the application. When sending your work upstream with this system, offlate will use your account on the instance used by the project to create a new project in your user space, clone the upstream project, create a new branch on your namespace and send a merge request to the upstream project, so they can review your changes before accepting them.
Currently Supported Formats
Currently, offlate supports gettext files (.po), qt translation format (.ts) and Yaml files.
