Hi,
thank you very much for your input.
As the dutch translation is very incomplete at the moment, we would be very happy if you would like to join our team on transifex (https://www.transifex.com/widelands/widelands/dashboard/) to help with the translations there.
If you have any problems or need help in the usage of the interface please let us know.

Hello Hessenfarmer, i have had a look before but i am not going to pay for it. I do not know what is good about them but i have only a small pocket so i cant waste it. i have my internet and thats it. actualy i am glad that this game is free and opensource. I hope to learn more C so i can build a extra tab for messages inside the buildings. i have some simplistic C attempts which are not related to widelands at all and you are all very welcom if you are buzzy with 8bit retro Sinclair ZX Spectrum like i do a bit myself on worldofspectrum.com.

But i am glad to help with more translations. i update about once a month i guess. i noticed some opening hints still to be in english, maybe i find it back in that structure about structers in a giant STRUC so, hope not to get struc, eh, stuck there..

You don't need a paid account on transifex to contribute to Widelands translations. Although they say you sign up for 15 days free trial, if you look at their pricing info, you'll find that they have an "open source plan", which means that you can work on open source projects without paying anything. They won't even nag you after your 15 days are over.

As for what's so great about it: It has some advantages, and some drawbacks, but the deciding factor is simply that it's what Widelands uses. All translations go into the github tree through transifex.

It's a well integrated, web-based, collaborative tool. I found it pretty good for occassional translations and to get acquainted with translating Widelands, but it is slow and somewhat tedious for more intensive work. So after I got some experience, I moved to working offline and sync my translations with their command line client (having one is a plus too, and it's even packaged in Debian main). If Dutch has more active translators then working offline may be more problematic. For hungarian I had been pretty much alone for the last 2 months, so it was no problem.

@CrisiusXIII:
as tothxa said transifex is free for open source projects, so it would be nice if you could put your translations in there. Once you made an account ask @Nordfriese to put you in the right translators group.
providing your translations here is nice but it would cost us extra work and time to copy them to transifex. Please remeber our aactive team is very small.
For this you are welcome to join our developers and checkout our c++ or lua code. To achieve this it would be most recomendable to use these Instructions ( https://www.widelands.org/wiki/GitPrimer/ )

As far as I remember, I didn't have to ask anybody to join the hu team.

I added the info about tx "open source plan" to the TranslatingWidelands wiki page.

Some words/line are not accepted since the button does NOT turn blue.

Thanks for joining the team,

These sort of strings have numbers in them and need to have 2 Source strings and 2 translation strings. One string is for singular verb and noun forms in relation to the placeholder for the number, one string is for Plural forms.
They are indicated by the blue symbols of [1] and [other] above the translation area. These are switches to change between the strings.

in the example provided this is "add-ons" and "add-on" on the source side and "uitbreidingen" and "????" on the translation.
the button only turns blue if both parts are translated.
