Language File Manager

The language file manager is used to edit the language files, which are used by Slimjet to localize the user interface. Please note that the language files only cover the additional strings added on top of the Chromium open-source project during Slimjet development. The strings that already exist in Chromium project are translated using Chromium language pack files and will not be available in the language file manager.

If you are interested in helping translate Slimjet into a particular language, please don't hesitate to contact us.

How to use language file manager

Select "More Tools->Language File Manager" from the main menu to open the language file manager.

  1. Select the target language that you want to translate from the drop-down box. Your current language will be automatically selected if you are using a localized interface.  
  2. You will be able to see the language file entries displayed in the central table. The first column is a unique identifier for internal use. The second column shows English text and the third column shows the corresponding target language text. Select an entry from the table and the text will be shown in two edit boxes at the bottom. You can edit the target language text in the target language edit box. You can press ENTER key to move to the next entry
  3. You can sort the entries based on different criterion by clicking on the column headers. Clicking on the target language column header will display the un-translated strings at the top as a convenience. 
  4. To start a new line inside the entry text, press CTRL+ENTER instead of ENTER. 
  5. Click Save button to save the changes.
  6. Click the submit button to submit the language file to us so that we can include the changes in the next release. Otherwise, your changes will be lost when you install the next version.
