Greetings,

I just wanted to know if Cura support Arabic language or no? If not, can we cooperate to work with Cura developers to translate the application UI?

Regards,

Tarek AlTalib

    At the moment it doesn't have support for Arabic Language. We do have a translation system in place, but I'm not sure how much work it would be to convert it to Arabic (as all interface now assumes that text is left to right and I remember that Arabic is right to left)

    We won't be able to put a whole lot of work into this, but we can help you get started with this.

    I would like to thank you for your prompt response.

    Which Cura version can I use to start Arabisation? I will give it try until we have the proper support :)

    regards,

     

    The 2.1 beta would be the best candidate for this.

    Would you please provide me with resources on how/were to start the translation?

    Sure! We use .po files for the translation.

    For 2.1 these can be found in

    https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/tree/2.1/resources/i18n

    and

    https://github.com/Ultimaker/Uranium/tree/2.1/resources/i18n

    More information on how .po and pot files work can be found on https://www.icanlocalize.com/site/tutorials/how-to-translate-with-gettext-po-and-pot-files/

    Many thanks Nallath for your help and support. I will start looking into this and if I need further help will ask you again. I really appreciate it.
