Can I contribute?

PRs are very welcome!

You can contribute to software development and/or create translations for the app.

How to contribute to translating app

Method 1 : using GitHub

Adding a new Language:

  1. Go to Languages folder and create a new yaml file with name {StandardCountryCode}.yml like en-US.yml or fa-IR.yml. Here is a List of country codes you can pick.
  2. Copy the content of en-US.yml to the new created file.
  3. In the meta part of yaml edit the Translators array. Remove the existing translators in the copied file and just put information of yourself.
  4. Translate the Translation section of file and make a PR!

Modifying a translation file:

  1. Go to Languages and find the language you want to edit using its standard locale.
  2. In the meta part of yaml and in the Translators array, add yourself as a new translator without removing others from the list.
  3. Make your changes in the Translation section and make a PR!

Method 2 : using Email

Use the links mentioned in above method, modify/add translation file, then email it to me:

πŸ“œ RTL Languages

For right-to-left languages like Persian, Arabic, etc. It is not needed to explicitly state language layout in the meta section. Simply use a standard country code, and the app automatically detects if it has right-to-left direction or not and changes the design of elements in app.
