As of Gramps 5.2.x, Hosted Weblate for translations.

Translators are advised to read the Weblate documentation.

Creating an account

Registration is easy - just click on Register.

The E-mail and Full name fields are used to credit your contributions.

You need to be signed in to translate, otherwise you can only make suggestions.

Starting a new translation

If your language is not currently translated, you can request that it be added. Navigate to the "gramps" component and select the "Tools -> Start new translation" menu option.

Select your language, and then click the "Request new translation" button. Further details can be found in the documentation.

A request will be sent to the administrator.


Any authenticated user can edit translations. Changes are automatically submitted as a pull request to the Gramps GitHub repository. This can take 24 hours since Weblate attempts to group changes from the same author in a process called "lazy commits".

Some translators have been designated as reviewers. A list of reviewers can be found on the Translators Portal page.

A reviewer an approve translations. After a translation has been approved, it can only be changed by a reviewer or administrator, although any user can still make suggestions.
