German translation assistance

Hi,

I would like to use the german translation in the new Cura 14.09 on Mac OS X.

Unfortunately the translation is not complete, mixed english and german and sometimes the translation is not "optimal".

I am not a developer, but I would like to help to get a better understanding for german-beginners :-D

Maybe someone can explain where I can change the Text to right german?

If you (Ultimaker) want I will send you the corrected files for the next Update.

Thank you

Greets Dirk

    For updating the translations, you want poedit:

    http://poedit.net/

    This is an editing suite for the language files.

    Next, you want to edit the language files. These are .po files in side of Cura. In the windows version they are at Cura/resources/locale

    On MacOS, you need to open the package contents (right click, show contents) and find the .po files there in the resources.

    With poedit you can edit these files, and update the translation. While you could update the po files trough git, that's complex, you can also email me the updated file, at d.braam@ultimaker.com

    As for parts that miss translation, could be 3 things, could be that in the po file there is no translation made. Could be that it's not in the po file, but that it's properly marked in the code for translating. Or, it could be that it's not marked for translation at all. Best would be to tell/show screenshot for these parts, so I can figure out which of these 3 it is.

    Hi Daid,

    okay, I loaded the file from /Applications/Cura/Cura.app/Contents/Resources/locale/de/LC_MESSAGES/Cura.po

    If you open the file, you will see there are missing translations, BUT a lot of the translations are just not shown in cura. I will try to list all wrong parts..

    Starting with the Menubar

    Hide Cura

    Hide others

    Show all

    Quit Cura

    Reload Platform

    Print all at once

    Print one at a time

    Install default firmware (there is a translation, but in the line below)

    Open expert settings

    Now the Interface

    Select a quickprint profile

    Basic (<-the word itself)

    Infotext for Brim/Raft

    Advanced (<- the word itself)

    Initial layer line width +Infotext

    Infotext for overlapping dual extrusion

    Infotext for Travel speed

    Infotext for infill speed

    outer shell speed + Infotext

    inner shell speed + Infotext

    Infotext for layertime

    Expert config

    All headlines in english like Retraction, Skirt, Cool, Infill....

    Infotext for Minimal extrusion before retracting

    z hop + Infotext

    Fan full on at height + Infotext

    Infotext for minimal speed

    Structure type + Infotext

    Overhang angle for support + Infotext

    Infotext for fill amount

    Blackmagic complete in englisch

    Infotext for extra margin

    Airgap + Infotext

    Surface layers + Infotext

    Fix horrible all Infotexts in english

    I hope this helps you.

    You have to guide me through the next steps.

    greeting Dirk

    Hmmm... configWizard.py:377 is not yet completely correct IMHO.

    I would rather write "Andere (z.B. RepRap, MakerBot)"

    I haven't checked the entries from that point on. Maybe you want to double-check them by yourself?

    @Daid: do you want the translations in formal german (respectful) or personal german (to a friend)?

     

    Uhm. Don't know?

    The current translation was done by iGo3D I think. Not sure what type of german they picked.

    Most of the traslated in the Cura.po is not shown in Cura. Maybe Daid could fix this?

    Look at my second Post, there is all the not translated listed.

    so i translated everything in the po file and loaded it into Cura 14.09

    what is missing in the PO file:

    - Window titles for

    - expert settings

    - maschine settings

    - wizards

    - cura preferences

    - expert settings

    - dropdown entries for support (grid, lines)

    - category titles (skirt, brim etc.)

    - maschine settings

    - dropdown entries for formfactor (square, circular)

    - button text (all)

    - the whole bed level wizard

    - full settings register headers for basic and advanced

    so that should be it

     

    And, the printing time/filament use also isn't translated.

    Just updated everything that I could find that had missing things. And I forgot to update the po files to contain some translations, so I have new files now. But those don't contain the changes done in the above download yet.

    Uploaded RC4 to:

    http://software.ultimaker.com/Cura_closed_beta/

    This has the latest German translation for you guys to check.

    I've also got a few reports about support material not working on the german translated version, does anyone have this problem as well?

    I'm going to buy an Ultimaker2 in the next time, so I tested the way from Blender to Cura with some simple models.

    I work at a Mac with OS X 10.9.5 and I installed the Cura version 14.09.

    After choosing "german" as language,

    - I found that I got only the support stuctures "von der Bau Plattform aus" (Touching Buildplate),

    - switching to support type "Überall" (everywhere) had no effect, no new calculation and no support strctures in the upper part of my models.

    A restart of Cura, with choosing "english" helped, Cura constructed also the upper support structures.

    I wanted to provide some picture to illustrate this behavour, but i wasn't allowed by the forum (?)

    It seems that the german word "überall" is not recognized in the programming logic.

    Ah, yes, found the problem. Fixed for the next release.
