Welcome-screen translation
« on: 28. December 2015, 19:10:28 »
Hi,

been searching a while, but to no conclusion, on where to translate the opening screen in Manjaro. It's strings are not found in any of the files available for translation at transifex.com/manjarolinux/.

I'm talking about the welcome screen which starts with; "Welcome to Manjaro, and thank you for joining our community! We, the Manjaro Developers,..."

Does anyone have a clue?

manjaro-welcome does not have translation support yet.

this issue is being discussed internally, too.
but if manjaro-welcome offers translation support, it should offer it of ALL text. this means that the announcement of a new manjaro release has to be finished early. only then do translators have the time to translate it.
but the release announcements are traditionally one of the last things to finish before a new release.
this makes it unlikely for manjaro-welcome to receive full translation support.

All the text is easily translatable and more or less reused, except maybe for the Release Info.

Being a highly visible item for new users, untranslated it would rule out Manjaro as a possible distro in lots of places - schools, institutions and such.

I got a welcome screen that is displayed in English in some distributions.
Or welcome screen have been translated, but the clicked earlier has become English.
It is for users other than English is a native language, translated Welcome screen might useless.
