14 January 2017 Language Translations


CamBam is being translated to a variety of different languages.

As of CamBam version 0.9.8K you will be prompted for your preferred language at the time of installation.
The program will then attempt to download a language data file from the main CamBam website. If a data file is not available for your language, please check this page for updates.

The language setting can be changed at a later date using the Language property in System - Configuration.
CamBam will need to be restarted for the new language change to take effect!

It is still early days in the translation process. We are piloting the system using French and German translations but plan to release new translations soon. I am enormously grateful to David (dh42) and Ralph (pixelmaker) for their hard work on the French and German translations.

Translations of the user documentation are also in progress. These will initially be available from the online documentation section, with instructions on how to install this information locally coming soon.

We aim to provide manual translations of most key languages, but initially automatic translations may be used. These will be indicated in the status list below.

We would really appreciate your help!

If your preferred language is not currently available or has been poorly translated using the automated routines, you are familiar with the concepts in CamBam and CNC in general, and you would like to get involved we would love to hear from you.

For keen and eager translators, a language translation helper plugin is available for anyone to download here:

Language Data Files

Translation data is stored in a text file located in the CamBam system folder. Use Tools - Browse system folder to navigate to this location. The data files are of the format : 'translate_' where is the standard language code as listed below.

The selected language data file will attempt to be downloaded after installation. If this fails or you want to make sure you have the most up to date translations, this data file can be downloaded using the Tools – Download latest translations menu option within CamBam.

Language Status

To manually install language data files from the table below, download, then unzip them to the CamBam system folder.
