Translating Geary

Geary uses GNU Gettext internally to internationalise its user interface, and the GNOME translation system to translate both the user interface and user manual. If you would like to help out translating Geary into other languages, here's how to do it:

  1. Register for an account on translation system, if you do not already have one

  2. Find and join the team for your language

  3. Check the Geary module

  4. Start translating!

For further information, read How to start using GNOME's translation system and check the TranslationProject.
