Wouldn’t it be great if you could use SourceTree for Mac in your own language?
We’ve supported French and Japanese in SourceTree for Mac for some time, but until now we haven’t been able to expand to more languages efficiently. However, dropping support for OS X 10.6 recently has meant we could finally convert all our user interfaces to auto layout – only supported on OS X 10.7+ – which enables us to add support for many more languages. As many as we want in fact 🙂
Good News Everyone!
So, from today we’re adding significantly to the number of languages we intend to support in the next major version, and are asking the community to assist us in populating those translations ahead of the release. You can contribute your translations to the SourceTree for Mac Translation Project – signing up is easy and you can get started in no time.
We’ve added a bunch of languages already, and we may add more in future. Languages that reach a good level of completion (around 60%+) by the time the next major version is released will be included in that release. Right now Russian is the only one which has reached that threshold, so if you’d like your language supported please jump in and translate as much as you can.
Inside each language are a bunch of resources which correspond broadly to functional areas so you’ll probably recognise where they are if you’re a SourceTree user. However if something is ambiguous you can post a comment here or in Transifex to request a clarification.
Thanks in advance! Let’s see how many languages we can support in the next version of SourceTree for Mac!
