Community Server changelog
Community Server portal interface can be switched into many languages it is translated into. The complete list of all the available languages can be found here. As you can see, some of the languages are present in our translation system, but are still not completely translated and not available on the portals. Read the information below to find out how to take part in the translation and add your language to the portals.
Taking part in translation
If you want your language to be added to the portal interface, you can participate in the translation. Our portals are translated by volunteers, which means that more people will translate portals faster and the translated language will be available at the portals upon completion.
All the translation of portal interface (both SaaS and server versions) is done via the online translation system interface. Please contact us via the email@example.com email address to get access to the translation system. Do not forget to specify the language you wish to translate to. More information about the work at the translation system is available in this article.
Getting your language
After the translation is over all you have to do to get the translation is either to wait for the release where your language will be included or updated, or write to us and we will send you the script you need to run for the translation to be applied. This can also be done using our firstname.lastname@example.org email address. When you receive the script, procees to the next step.
Adding the language to your installation
You will get the script archived in the .zip format. The following steps will help you install your language:
- unpack the zipped file so that it would be accessible by the local machine where Community Server is installed;
- as the MySQL is installed in a container separate from the Community Server, enter the MySQL Docker container and run the following command:
mysql -u root -p onlyoffice < onlyoffice.sql
onlyoffice.sql is the unzipped file (you might need to provide the full path to the file);
You will be asked for the password, use the password you choose during the installation or the default "my-secret-pw" one.
- edit the
/var/www/onlyoffice/WebStudio/web.appsettings.config file so that they had your language in them (e.g. Swedish - sv-SE):
<add key="web.cultures" value="en-US,fr-FR,de-DE,es-ES,en-GB,ru-RU,lv-LV,pt-BR,pt-PT,it-IT,el-GR,zh-CN,pl-PL,uk-UA,fi-FI,ko-KR,ja-JP,sl-SI,sv-SE" />
The complete list of all the language locale codes is available here.
- and finally restart the
monoserve service running the commands:
service monoserve stop
service monoserve start
Now you can go the the portal Settings and change your portal language.
