(There are nearly 30,000 words to translate in Scrivener's interface and code, and another 21,000 if we translate the tutorial, too!)

Once translation is done, we will be asking for users to volunteer to take a look over the interface to make sure everything looks right, too.

Sorry for the huge delay in this.

All the best,
Keith

Hi,

Thanks for the best writing tool I've ever used.

Though, in 2018, a lot of menu items and texts are still in english in the french UI. Some of them are wrong (e.g. « expression courante » pour « expression régulière » — sic).

How could we help?

Thanks for replies.

Hi,

We do need to look at this. I think there were some problems in some of the translations, but also some changes since the translations may have caused some of the text to revert to English. Please let us know of any you see (and, even better, let us know what you think it should be translated to if you can). Unfortunately it is hugely difficult keeping on top of all of the translations for every single update.

Thanks and all the best,
Keith

Where? Here? (there are plenty of things to do… Is it convenient?)

Note: MM (Jennifer) gave me the mac team's email address, I wrote, but none never answer to me…

Best regards,

Phil
