Translation guidelines for the Sleipnir Web browser!

We recently started recruiting volunteer translators for all versions of Sleipnir. The response we have received is amazing, and we are very thankful. We have already added support for many new languages, but we still have many more people out there who we would like to introduce our Web browser to. To make it easier for translators to translate our software, I have decided to provide an easy to understand guide to translating our software.

We are recruiting volunteer translators for various languages.
The translation process is simple and can be completed without taking up much of your time.
If you would like to use your native language in Sleipnir and it is not already available, then why not join in and help us translate Sleipnir.

Target products:
Sleipnir 3 for Windows
Sleipnir 3 for Mac
Sleipnir Mobile for iPhone / iPad
Sleipnir Mobile for Android
Sleipnir Mobile for Windows Phone

How to open the file

– Please send us a message to info@fenrir-inc.com and we will promptly send the file to be filled in.

– Although you can open and edit the file in a standard text editor such as Notepad, it is advised to use a spreadsheet program. The standard spreadsheet program for Windows systems is Microsoft Excel, but if you do not have it installed on your computer, you can download the free spreadsheet program: Open Office instead.

When you try to open the file, please select UTF-8 for the encoding, and [Tab] only for the separator if it is a TSV(Tab Separated Value) file, or [Comma] only for the separator if it is a CSV(Comma Separated Value) file.
(Otherwise characters might be garbled.)

How to input the translation

– Please insert the target translation language into the blank column to the right of the English column, and specify the target translation language at the top.

Please try to keep translations the same size or shorter than the English translations because space in the binary is limited. However, we do understand that it may be difficult for all the translations, so please let us know if it is difficult to keep any of the translations the same size or shorter than the English translation.
