Translating IPFire into Chinese

IPFire is a great firewall software. It is small but powerful, and it is very interesting to distinguish different networks by color. I am from China and I am a volunteer for pfsense and OPNsense Chinese language translation. For the convenience of Chinese users, after a week of hard work, I have translated the latest version of IPFire’s PL language file into Chinese, but I don’t know how to submit it to the IPFire developers. please help me!

But there is no Chinese patch yet

Hi @jjjttwkr

Welcome to the IPFire community.

Looking back in the developers mailing list, after a couple of posts by @fxneng, which were forwarded into the developers mailing list by @ummeegge, there was no further update after Dec 2019 of the patch to include the setup and installer files into Chinese which were committed to being done.

From the patch mailing list history it is clear that the developers would be more than pleased to have a Chinese Language patch provided but as none of them are familiar with the language it needs to be provided by someone who will commit to supporting the Language File with any updates as new or changed wording is applied. Just having an initial file provided but then after some initial input no further follow-up will not end up being accepted into the build.

If you or someone else is interested and willing to support this on a long term basis then please join the developers mailing list and start the conversation.
