Instructions for translators

Both the OpenRocket software itself and this wiki site are multilingual. Below you will find instructions for people willing to contribute to the translations.


Translating the wiki pages[edit]

The wiki page translations are managed using the MediaWiki Translate extension. This allows paragraph-per-paragraph translation of pages, keeping track of changes and indicating to readers when the translation is out of date or new content has been added.

Translators must be signed in. Anonymous editing of the translations are not possible.

There are two steps for translating a page. First, the page needs to be prepared for translation, and then translated.

Preparing a page for translation[edit]

Please read the Page translation example from the Translate extension site.

Short version:

  • Edit the main page and surround the entire page within <translate> ... </translate>
  • After saving, click Mark this page for translation (or This page contains changes which are not marked for translation)

Translating a page[edit]

Please read the Translation example from the Translate extension site.


More in-depth information is available in Further reading and tutorials of the Translation extension.


Note that most of the developer pages are intentionally left out of the scope of translation. These include for example feature plans, which are volatine and do not provide any benefit to be translated.
