Hi
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
https://github.com/MediaPortal/Medi...MPLanguageTool/bin/Release/MPLanguageTool.exe

You need the master (english) language file (strings_en.xml) for MP
https://github.com/MediaPortal/Medi...rtal/MediaPortal.Base/language/strings_en.xml

You need the master (english) language file (MediaPortal.DeployTool.resx) for the DeployTool
https://github.com/MediaPortal/Medi...Portal.DeployTool/MediaPortal.DeployTool.resx


And you need the files for your language
For MP they are here
https://github.com/MediaPortal/MediaPortal-1/blob/master/mediaportal/MediaPortal.Base/language
Your file is called strings_xx.xml
Where xx is the language code

and the deploy files are here
https://github.com/MediaPortal/MediaPortal-1/tree/master/Tools/MediaPortal.DeployTool

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.
