Language files for non-official Skype languages available

[ Edited ]

Skype bundles a number of languages with the standard installation file but there are more languages available for the interface. Some of these are really hard to find on the forum or web so to make life easier, some translators have opened a project on SourceForge (download your lang file here) where you can now get all the .lang / .ts and .qm files (as far as we know). To install in Windows, go to Skype and select Tools » Change Language » Load Skype Language file. To install on Linux, check the wiki on SourceForge.

 

If you would like to continue translating into your language or if you want to start a new non-official translationg, please visit the project on Transifex 

 

Please note:

 

  • They're not all complete translations (but you're welcome to help!)
  • They're not official so if any translations are wrong, that's not Skype's fault

Re: Language files for non-official Skype languages available

A sticky would be really good. Also the ability to edit that first post, cause we're already splitting the list of languages across three posts as we add:

 

23. Belarusian (Беларуская мова, тарашкевіца)
24. Norwegian (Nynorsk)

Re: Language files for non-official Skype languages available

Thanks for the initiative. Great work. You should definitely try to reach out to all users that created these files to ensure they agree with that.

I've updated the first post and made this a sticky.
