Call for translators

Version 2.1.9 is still getting closer to being ready for release, although there's still some actual issues needing, at the very least, testing.

However, there are some user interface languages we had in 2.1.8 or earlier versions, where the translator has gone missing, or just hasn't responded to my mail.

  • Catalan (Eduard)

  • Farsi (Meysam)

  • Korean (unknown)

  • Polish (Adam)

  • Vietnamese (Hung NGUYEN, OnEsChi)

  • Chinese, both Traditional and Simplified (mkboy2)

If you are one of the people listed here I would appreciate if you could contact me. If you otherwise speak one of these languages well and want to help, I would also love to hear so.

For most languages, there are just 5 strings in the main program that need translation. The exception to this is Polish, which has several more new strings.

Someone calling himself "Ling├╝ista" also created a European Spanish translation recently, but did not leave any contact information. I think many people would appreciate being able to choose between a European Spanish and a Latin American Spanish translation. If you can help with a European Spanish translation you can see the work done currently on ticket 1220 on our Trac.

If you are interested in the process of translating Aegisub you can find more information on the Translations page on our Trac wiki.

Update: The Korean, Polish, Vietnamese and Chinese translations have been updated now.

Not dead yet

Aegisub is still alive!

Recently I've seen people asking whether Aegisub is dead, or what is happening, so it's probably a good idea to write an update on it.

First: No, Aegisub is not dead. There is still at least a bit of life left. Version 2.1.9 is being prepared for release right now, and the main blocker for the Windows version right now is getting the user interface translations updated.

However, it's very true that activity has been especially low since the new year passed. None of us have had enough time to work on Aegisub, or school, work, or other projects have taken priority. Also there has been a change on the team, verm (Amar) has left, and this might also be part of the reason activity has dropped.

Missing translations: Unfortunately, we are missing contact to the translators for three languages, which might delay the 2.1.9 release. We are missing translators for Korean, Traditional Chinese and Simplified Chinese. If you think you can help with either of those languages, you can learn more about the translation process on our developer wiki: Translations

The current goal is to release 2.1.9 before the end of June, but as always, it's hard to make any promises.
