Gramps in another language
Please update or expand this section.
This topic needs drastic expansion. I hope some of the topic pages exist in various forms. But Translators & users of Gramps in another language will be more aware of them. (Most pages found so far seem to be written for scripting experts. I hope to keep this page at a less intimidating level. Link to technical process pages, don't make THIS introductory level page into something overwhelming.) Expect the English base page to be very fluid for October while the material is collated. It might not be wise to begin translating until the Stub warning is removed (before 1 Dec 2019).
Using Gramps in my native Language
Installing, learning and using Gramps is already challenging. If you wish to do that in a language other English, there are a few things to explore.
Your first question is probably if the Gramps supports your preferred language? But the answer is not simple. Parts of the interface might have been translated but there are sure to be items that were missed or add-on modules that are still untranslated.
Since the Wiki is huge and some pages are obsolete, there will always be pages (and screenshots) that are only available in English.
Teaching an English Gramps installation another language
The recommended method of setting up support for a language is to install Gramps on a system already configured for that language. The installers adapt to supported languages an select the basic configuration as needed. But sometimes it is necessary to support an additional language.
- Installing a language overlay
- Adding the spell-check dictionary
- Setting the default language
- Starting in an alternate language from the command line

Reinterpreted material is likely to have unfortunate, or even offensive, translation errors. Please recognize this with good humor but also report it to the WikiContributor for your language. A suggestion for the corrected text is more helpful than a simple complaint.
The Gramps Wiki documentation is a community project. If you notice that documentation is: outdated, incomplete, entirely missing, or not yet translated into your native language; request a WikiContributor account and help us improve! Or join our volunteers translating the wiki or interface.
