How to change display language?

Post by flyelfrick » Fri Feb 09, 2018 6:23 am

Hi

In GIMX 7.1 I saw it support new translations, but where can i switch to another translation?
I didn't find change language in settings item. Anyone know how to do it?

It happens automatically depending on your system language.

If you want to switch the locale then just switch your system language. If you do not wish to switch it and still have other language in gimx there may be a way to do that, bit dirty but there is. Please do that only if you exactly know what you want to do and delete that modification after update. It should work but please undo that if you encounter bugs. It's not the official way, just a quick workaround from me.
  • Go to GIMX folder->share->locale
  • Create "en" directory
  • Go to the directory of desired language (es,pt,fr)
  • Copy LC_MESSAGES folder to the "share/locale/en"
  • This will force the application to use another language instead of default english.

Hi,

Like Godlike said, the only way is to either change the system language or to hack the gimx files.

I just added a new issue: https://github.com/matlo/GIMX/issues/528

Hi Godlike, Matlo

Thanks for provide me information, I ask is because I try to add my local language support for GIMX (Traditional Chinese), but doesn't know how to test and verify it.
If you wish, I will provide my translation work to your team.

Thanks Godlike,

The information is really helpful. The process seems all good, will send to Matlo when verified with my friends. ;)
Some people can't reading English well, so they are afraid to using GIMX and buy DriveHUB instead (of course it is a good product too).
