Our global community of PostBooks ERP, accounting, and CRM users has been hard at work producing translation files in ten languages, including Spanish, French, German, Russian, Chinese, and Japanese.
These translations are in various stages of completion but all can be downloaded and installed in xTuple ERP (PostBooks, Standard, or OpenMFG Editions) to change the default language displayed.
Just go to the Translation Portal at www.xtuple.org and sign in to see the list of available files. Instructions for using the files are available at the Translation Portal wiki page (http://wiki.xtuple.org/TranslationPortal).
The real magic is the Translation Portal itself. We believe it's a first in the open source community: a web-based front end that allows translators to work together online on Qt/Linguist translation files.
Previously, translators had to load the whole file all at once, with the Qt/Linguist tool. Our new, web-based Translation Portal allows multiple translators to work at once, in small discrete pieces that can be checked in and out. It's unique and efficient and it'll speed up the process of cranking out new languages for xTuple ERP.
To participate as a translator, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Tell us a little about yourself and include your xTuple.org username. We'll give you translator privileges so you can begin right away!
