HowTo translate Redmine in your own language

Redmine can easily be translated in any language.

There are a few things to translate:

  1. the main lang file, located in /lang
  2. the calendar lang file, located in /public/javascripts/calendar/lang
  3. the wiki toolbar lang file, located in /public/javascripts/jstoolbar/lang (for r1074 and above)

Say you want to translate Redmine in Finnish (fi as defined in the IANA Language Subtag Registry):

  1. copy /lang/en.yml to fi.yml and translate every strings this file contains.
  2. copy /public/javascripts/calendar/lang/calendar-en.js to calendar-fi.js and translate every strings this file contains (mainly day and month names).
  3. copy /public/javascripts/jstoolbar/lang/jstoolbar-en.js to jstoolbar-fi.js and translate the strings.

All these files must be UTF-8 encoded. Do not use HTML entities in translated strings.

You can submit your translation here (login required) if you want it to be added to the next release.
