Calling for community translators


Recommended Posts

Posted · Calling for community translators

Hello everybody,

because translating Cura is currently not easy for everyone, I thought about trying out an service by launchpad.net.

Currently Cura is being translated by its own translation files and by the files in our framework, called Uranium.

First I would suggest to try to get full translations for Uranium and then finish the work on Cura itself.


  • Before you begin:
    First decide whether you really want to translate Cura into your language. There will be a lot of texts and you will likely need to update your translations on every release, as texts change or new ones are added.

  • Requirements
    You will need a launchpad.net account and a browser of your choice. If you really decided to translate Cura into your language, leave a comment here with your language code, I create empty translation files and set here everything up.
    It might take some time, if not even hours. So enough time to take a coffee... or better two..

  • How it works:
    You login to launchpad.net with your user account and visit the translations page for Uranium. On that page click on your language and you can begin to translate.

  • Hints:
    1. Often you will find %s or {1}, etc, in the texts. These are placeholders. For example if there is an error message saying "An error occurred while opening the file %s", %s will be the path or the filename. Forgetting these placeholders or leaving them out lead to errors in Cura. Probably Cura would not crash without them, but your translated would probably not appear or even worse Cura might misbehave. So do not forget to add them to your translations.
    2. When translating some texts there are also suggested translations from other projects. These probably do not fit to the rest of Curas context or even do not contain or contain wrong formatting. Use them with caution.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.

        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
