@Bubu Just for curiosity, which advantage has it, compared to host.Weblate.org?
@PorrurenGrabatokia hosted.weblate.org requires you to either pay them, or apply per email for an exemption for free software. I find this a bit too much hassle.
I'm not a programmer but I want to add internationalitation to an Android app, SplitBills, because the developer has no time.
There's already the strings.xml under values directory. How could I do to add i18n and L10n in your Weblate?
@PorrurenGrabatokia Okay, this would definitely need some cooperation from the developer but most of the work can be done by someone else who wants to manage the weblate project.
* Create a weblate account
* Create a new project
* Create a new component inside the project (something like `app`)
* Fill out all project info like License, name, etc.
* Import the app by giving weblate the git url and saying it's an android app.
* Start translating
The app author would need to do the following still:
* Create a gitlab hook which will tell weblate to update the translation sources whenever they change in the git repo
* Pull in new translations from weblate before a new release.
@PorrurenGrabatokia There's also alternatives for automating the last part (getting translations from weblate into the app) but I haven't looked at that yet.
