This year, we’ve been working on significant changes to OSMC under the hood. Some of these changes aren’t immediately visible, but pave the way for the future of OSMC and will improve the user experience significantly over time.
For some time, we’ve wanted users to enjoy OSMC fully in their language, but didn’t have a workflow or system to facilitate this.
We have now set up a translation system, powered by WebLate and we need your help translating OSMC in to other languages so we can deliver a consistent and dependable user experience.
This is new territory for us, so we will start by translating the OSMC Skin, mantained by @Chillbo and take things from there. After this, we’ll extend this to our My OSMC add-on and some downstream strings that we use for the platforms we support.
We are looking for users that are happy to translate OSMC.
If you are interested, please reply here and we will get in touch. We will be somewhat judicious in this process – we’re looking for members of this forum that have been active for a long time.
Please note: if you’ve been invited and logged in, but find yourself unable to log in later, make sure you’re using your translator-* email address, and not your personal email address. We’re using custom email addresses because the WebLate system commits these to the repository which is a known issue. You can find your translator-* email address from the welcome email.
