    There have been very few submitted updates to the languages files since the move of the code to github.

    Here is an update on "how to" contribute to the translation of the languages files intended for non software developers.

    You need the MPLanguageTool

    You need the master (english) language file (strings_en.xml) for MP

    You need the master (english) language file (MediaPortal.DeployTool.resx) for the DeployTool

    And you need the files for your language
    For MP they are here
    Your file is called strings_xx.xml
    Where xx is the language code

    and the deploy files are here

    Your file is called MediaPortal.DeployTool.xx-XX.resx
    Where xx is the language code and XX is the country code

    To download files
    double click with the left mouse button on the file you want to download
    and then use the right mouse button on the "Raw button" similar to the image below.
    Select Save As...
    Change the file extension from txt to resx

    You find the language codes below.
