Translation to kurdish language (Northern kurdish)

Hi there! i would to know how to start the translation process of mastodon into kurdish?


It looks like there is a Kurdish translation which you should be able to work on at CrowdIn. Please update this thread whether it works or not as I’ve not setup an account there.

Hi again and thank you for your reply.
Actually there is sorani kurdish (central kurdish)
but i ask for kurmanji kurdish (northern kurdish)

Great. If you know the two-letter ISO code for Northern Kurdish you might add that to an issue to add a locale like Please add gd locale · Issue #15826 · mastodon/mastodon · GitHub.

For northern kurdish the ISO code is ku
For central kurdish it’s ckb

Translation to kurdish language (Northern kurdish) - #2 by weex on github naming the sorani kuridsh as Ku is so wrong the right is ckb, this makes us suffering so much I’ll suggest renaming it today
please take a look at this

I’m still waiting for an answer…

I agree this is a problem, the next step is for you to create an issue in github. Please add gd locale · Issue #15826 · mastodon/mastodon · GitHub may help though you’re requesting a renaming of one locale and then repurposing of the existing for you if I understand correctly. If you don’t have a github account or don’t want one, write out a description of the problem the best you can and I’ll create the issue for you.

Hi again, and sorry for my delayed answer, I need to understand this point what I should to do at first step? I’ve asked on crowdin to add kurmanji Kurdish and they did, should I start translate there or? And yes I need to rename ku into ckb
But I’ve 0 experience on GitHub, I remembered that I’ve requested for renaming an existing locale file into ckb many times but I get no reply, so I’m not sure if i can change anything there.

Best regards

Github isn’t too hard but yes I think the next step is for you to create an issue there. Once you setup an account, go to Issues · mastodon/mastodon · GitHub and click the green new issue button. I think this is a Bug request so on the next screen pick that, fill it out and submit it. See the issue I linked above if you want an example of perhaps how to compose the request.
