Change languages


tuxtrans and Languages

For disk space reasons we have integrated only the English (EN-US) and the German (DE-DE) )language locale in tuxtrans 18.04, English is the language for the user interface of the system and for most of the standard applications. Obviously, you may work with or translate any language pair you want, but the user interface is available by default only in English.

You may add any language you like from the official repositories by going into the control center and selecting "Install / Remove Languages" in the "Languages" menu provided you have access to the internet. add language

Then drag your preferred language to the top of the list and click on "Apply System-Wide".

A message could appear that language support is not completely installed, this is intended behavior since we intentionally left out some big help files (Libreoffice, KDE-localization) to save place. You may install missing packages or leave them alone.

Log out, and log in again. Check your locale and system language by choosing "System | Verify Locale".

verify locale

All standard applications should also change their interface language. Start up the web browser firefox and check the interface language, do this with OmegaT in the Translation menu or with LibreOffice in the Office menu. All should appear in the new system language.

You may need to change the interface language in LibreOffice by selecting Extra | Options | Linguistic features| user interface.
