4 - Contribute!

Thorium and its documentation are developed thanks to the user community. We need help to translate this documentation.

To do so, you can contact us.

If you are comfortable enough with GitHub and the Markdown format you can propose a new translation via a Pull Request.

To do this: clone the repository and create a branch with the name of the language you want to add, make a copy of the content.en folder and rename it with two letters corresponding to the language you want to add (for example content.es will contain the Spanish translation). The names of the files must not be changed as they insure correspondence between languages.

The i18n folder contains the translations for the fixed elements of the header and footer. Several languages are already present, if your language is not present, copy paste the .yaml file and rename it with the first two letters of the letters of the language you want to add.

Finally to activate the menu of the language you add, edit the file config.toml and add the language with the following code:

[languages.en]
  languageName = 'English'
  contentDir = 'content.en'
  weight = 1

You must replace .en' with the first two letters of the language you are adding and fill in the name of the language as the languageNamevalue. Theweight` indicates the order of appearance in the language menu.

Example for Spanish :

[languages.es]
  languageName = 'Español'
  contentDir = 'content.es'
  weight = 3

Localized images such as screenshots should be added to the folder statics/images/local-(two letter language).
