How to translate Indico


I’m getting familiar with Indico for my BEng Thesis and i wanted to ask about the process of translation. I don’t have to translate whole system, but i want to know what programs or other solutions are necessary to be used if i want to translate Indico.


we are using standard gettext/po files for translation. In python we use babel which just adds some nicer API around gettext and for the actual translation we use Transifex which provides an easy-to-use webinterface for translators (who are not always programmers or people comfortable with editing plaintext files).

PS: You might want to change your account name here on the forums to something more customized. I think right now you have the default account name you get by logging in with a lightweight CERN account, and showing up as 7a58ac1e4f079339a71e in the forums doesn’t look very good :wink:


Thanks for fast answer and explaining how to translate Indico system.

You are right, my previous nickname looked very bad, so i followed your suggestion and changed it.
